Basketball drills for defense

Ad
  • Dry practise
    • All players on the baseline.
    • First player starts in the corner, makes slides.
    • Slanting towards line of basket. (Put a pawn down!)
    • From there, sprint to the side of the center line.
    • Then slides to line of basket.
    • Then from there sprint again.
  • Practise with attacker - without 1v1
    • Pairs with 1 ball.
    • Start on the baseline, in the corner.
    • 1 attacker, 1 defender.
    • Explain position:
      • Sit deep.
      • Hand in knee.
      • Other hand prevents pass.
    • Slides to the other side.
    • Second round same as above, but from the middle line 1-on-1.

free-running

  • Breaking free, learning in/out, 5 out (keep moving).
  • Free with defender, receive ball and score.
  • 2x2, also possible with 3x3, 4x4 (vests), trainer passes (or good player).


Ad
  • Arm's length distance -
  • Player is unprecedented/general good
  • Poet
    • Shot is good
    • Drive is less
    • HIGH so do not give shot
  • Further
    • Shot is not good
    • Drive is strong
    • LOW still hand up!
  • General
    • Forearm
    • No reaching
    • No step slide!
    • Ball is on forward man is on top with defender in closed denail
    • Watch out for backdoor

Prerequisites:

  • Knowing defensive stance / attacking principle of in-out.

Organization:

  • Coach gives pass on spot one (only attack after four passes/four swings)
  • Attacker at spot two and three
  • In/out move
  • First part of the exercise 1vs1; second part 2vs2
  • Passing on: offense becomes defense, defense connects and steps in as offense afterwards (stay on same side)


Goal:

  • Teach correct defensive position (denial + help defense)


Teaching points:

  • Quickly change position when the ball changes sides, read defenses as attackers (backdoor)
  • In/out to the bucket, when defending short, get out to 1m outside 3pt line and use backdoor option, jump to the ball as defender

Prerequisites:

  • Some game insight at fill the spot, be able to apply defensive stance (denail - helpside)

Goal:

  • offence: quickly see where there is an empty spot and cut through after a pass, defence: adjust stance according to how the ball is moving

Organization

  • 4 players (U10) on a spot with defence, empty spot under the ring.
  • Offence: pass the ball around and make a quick cutting move towards the empty spot below the ring, other attackers move up and the empty spot is filled in by the cutting attacker.
  • Defence: adjust position according to the ball. (hands on the ball, denail, weakside help on the line ring-ring)
  • 5 passes (calmly), then 4vs4
  • Passing on: offence becomes defence, defence steps out and then becomes offence
  • Possibly start with passive defence (hands on back) depending on players' level.


teaching points

  • Offence: good pass - in/out to deep bucket and high stepping out - placement of feet - attention to mistakes.
  • Defence: anticipate the ball - check correct posture per spot before passing - jump-to-the-ball


drawing


Three teams line up one ball on the back line.

  • Coach throws ball against the board (if he scores take it)
  • Middle player picks up rebound and chooses an outlet side
  • Outlet at speed to head of the bucket on the other side, matching player cuts behind the outlet.
  • Fill three lanes, possibly add defenders to make it harder (pick up two players from the center line, or rebound more first)
Ad
  • From the middle line 1-1.
  • Defender has a limited area (pylons) in which he can defend.
  • Attacker finishes with free lay-up (must go in or push up).
