Use this attacking plan to teach players how to set the screen, also known as a Pick, perfecting your players' positioning and timing to create space on court for team-mates.

To help your players perfect their offense skills we begin by giving your players the chance to practice screening unopposed, meaning they can focus fully on their positioning.

A screen is a blocking move by an offensive player, by standing beside or behind a defender, to free a teammate to shoot, receive a pass, or drive in to score.

Once players have understood the basics we then up the ante by starting to add pressure to your screeners, firstly with passive defenders and then with an active defence.

Get your players to block the opposition and create space for the cut with this screening skills session!
