Drills to Teach Transition Drive and Screen Offense
With more teams using up-tempo offenses to exploit opposing defenses, coaches need to develop the skills necessary to play this type of screen offense. Joe Dooley, head coach at East Carolina University, takes you through a series of breakdown drills and skills that will help your team develop within an up-tempo offense.
Dooley won back-to-back (2017 & 2018) Atlantic Sun Conference Coach of the Year awards while at Florida Gulf Coast. His drills are uniquely designed to develop players. The drills focus on basic fundamentals like butting, passing, and shooting.
Turnovers are something that coaches can prevent and Coach Dooley shows you a number of passing drills designed to eliminate those turnovers.
- Nash Drill: a simple warmup drill that uses both hands and works on making good one-handed air and bounce passes
- Gap Passing Drill: a three-man drill that uses quick movements to take advantage of bad closeouts and attack gaps in defenses
- Pocket Passing Drill: this works on early offense entries, focusing on drag screens in transition and hitting the roll man off the ball screen
Drive and Kick Series
To help your team penetrate to the basket, Coach Dooley takes you through a Drive and Kick series. The series works on a number of situations using L-cuts, drift passes, and passes back to players filling behind drivers. Coach Dooley’s drills work on post play, executing the “Okafor” move, kicking the ball back to the perimeter, and chasing passes to the perimeter with ball screens.
Offensive Build-Up Drills
Each day in practice, Coach Dooley’s players play 1-on-1 or 3-on-3. In the 1-on-1 drills, there is a three-dribble limit and players must find a way to create a scoring opportunity against on-ball pressure. The 1-on-1 drills are unique because of ball screen defense. Dooley takes his players through the ways his players guard ball screens before the 1-on-1 situation. The 1-on-1 drills then progress to 3-on-3.
The ability to play up-tempo offense comes from playing good defense. That means the closeout is of utmost importance. Coach Dooley demonstrates a 3-on-3 closeout drill that works on closing out and going live on the catch. In essence, the drill turns into live 3-on-3 and the breakdown drills presented earlier are put to use.
Coach Dooley gives some great insight into creating an up-tempo style of play that can help coaches at any level generate offense and produce more points. Rent this Screen Offense DVD today.
