Ball Screen Wave Drills

These drills were put together by Nate Hill.

He is the Assistant Boys Coach at Colonel Crawford High School in North Robinson, Ohio.

Coach Hill has provided several drills and has been generous enough to allow me to post them on the site.

He has also started a basketball coaching newsletter.

You can see find more information about the Newsletter at this link: Next Level 419 Coaching Newsletter

He provide a post where he outlined what he believes to be the strengths and weaknesses of five different methods of defending ball screens. Here is the link to that article on 5 options for defending pick and roll.

Since the drills uses both sides of the floor, you could use it as either a practice drill or a pre-game warm up drill if you run a ball screen offense.
