You don't have to be able to do all of these things to be a good player. I don't know of too many players that can.
You could be a very good rebounder who hustles all of the time and that could get you a lot of playing time. Or you could be a point guard who takes the of the ball, hustles, and plays great defense.
What should i do to prepare my self for basketball tryouts in 12 days if i havent played on a team since the second grade? I think the last word in the bullet on "Set up the defender" should be "foul" instead of "player. What are some good basic plays for a zone offense?
What are some good basic plays for a zone offense. This actually helped me understand screening! Maybe my coach won't yell at me anymore Thanks a bunch for this helpful article, guys!.
This helped alot, i play 8th grade basketball and my coach used the term 'Back Screen' today. I was confused, so I decided to google it, Thanks for this website, it's helpful.
I have a question: If the dribbler and a teammate decide to run to the basket together, in such a way that the dribbler is practically right behind his teammate, but there is NO opposition from any defender eg.
Basketball Dribbling is probably one of the most popular skills of the game - second only to shooting. Players at every level of competition love to dribble the basketball! There's something about having that basketball in your hands that just feels magical!.
Jerry, are you my fiend jerry who goes to the rec? Vince - I have never seen that done before and I certainly wouldn't teach that I think you would want your arms in front of you to protect your body.
Lousy grammar "has ran" used in above explanation! It should say, "has run. I was set until my player used my screen. Josh - The Pick and Roll is a basic part of a lot of pro teams, college teams and high school teams too. I've never seen someone P and follow We always told our players that the guy that sets the best screen or pick, is usually the guy that gets open IF they help Are the refs calling this illegal? Wanted to know advantages and disadvantages or when and what way to pivot after screens.
Im seeing both reverse pivots and sometimes front pivots. Is there a formula for this? I've coached girls and boys from 2nd graders to 9th graders over the years. The kids picked up on setting screens picks pretty good.
I think the hardest screen for them to execute is the away screen. The players just couldn't grasp the idea of going away from the ball My Middle School and Junior Varsity girls picked it up after a while, but the younger players is a different story. Do you have some helpful hints for me to be "more clear" on what and why they are going away from the ball?
Also, will you please post some more drills to execute some of the basic screens and screen and roll? I enjoy your website!. Coach - First of all, the person setting the screen raised his fist so the person receiving it knew that the screen was coming. Second of all, the person receiving the screen needs to take his defender away from the screen What if the player who set the screen is being overpowered by the defender?
If he is making a lot of contact that is a foul Can you pivot while setting a pick on the defesive player as he attempts to go around you? J, I don't believe so. If they are trying to get by you, that is classified as a "moving screen. I would ask a referee. I agree with Joe IF you are doing that purposely to block a player, I would think thats a foul We ran a play that looks like this Even though this post is old maybe no ones paying attention anymore: First off, I think the content on this site is great, as a coach of boys, it helps me to get my practices organized and focused.
Real pictures might actually slow load as they might be larger, given less compression, etc. What might help would be to insure the graphics are optimized and compressed and get your web developer to use sprite sheets instead of individual pictures. That way there is only one call to the server -- so you get every picture at once.
If you run into a wall, then you will find out what the outcome is. Why would u ask some kind of question anyway? What made u think that type of question? Just don't hit your head period, or at least not to. Watch us on YouTube. Which category applies to you? Basic Screens Down Screen - A player runs toward the baseline closest to their basketball goal to set a screen. In the next two diagrams, we have examples of down screens.
In this diagram, Player 1 starts from the three point line and runs to the block area to set a down screen for Player 2. In this diagram, Player 1 starts from the high post area to set a down screen for Player 2. Ball Screen - A ball screen is when an offensive player sets a screen for another offensive player who currently has the ball in possession.
The only time you will want to set a ball screen is when the offensive player still has his or her dribble. In this diagram, Player 1 is at the top of the key and Player 2 runs from the wing to set a ball screen on the defender guarding Player 1. In this diagram, Player 2 is setting a ball screen on the defender guarding Player 1, except this time he is coming from the high post.
Back Screen - A back pick occurs when the screener sets a screen away from the ball on the defender's back. It may also be called a "Blind Screen" as well. Legally, the screener is suppose to give the defender one step, otherwise, the screener may be called for an offensive foul. In this diagram, Player 2 comes from the block area to set a back screen for Player 1 near the three point line.
In this diagram, Player 2 comes from the block to set a back pick for Player 1 on the wing. Away Screen - This is when a player sets a screen away from the ball. This happens when a player passes the ball to a player, then runs away from the ball to set a pick for another offensive player.
This can also happen when a player is denied the ball, and he goes away from the ball to free up another offensive player. In this diagram, Player 2 passes to Player 3 and runs away from the ball to set a screen for Player 1.
