The ball screen is an offensive concept that is used frequently at all levels of basketball. Because of the popularity of this action, it then becomes vital that coaches teach the intricacies of the action to their players. Here is a drill that teaches the two basic levels of ball screen play.
x1 guards 1 live until the ball handler gets to the level of the screen. Once 1 gets to the level of the screen, x1 will either jump below the ball handler to push over the screen, or will get on the high side showing 1 that they need to reject the screen. 1 will make the read to refuse or use the screen and go score.
Use the same set up as the previous frame, but on this build the coach (or another player) will be the screener's defender. Now the player has to work on making the read to refuse or use the screen, and then also responding to the screener's defender.
