Basketball Defensive Drills & Game Plan for Practice
Sharman White won six straight Georgia Class AAAA state championships between 2009 and 2014 and was the 2016 National High School Coaches Association boys’ basketball Coach of the Year. Coach White believes his success is directly related to his team’s defense.
In this on-court basketball defensive drills instructional video, Coach White breaks down his defense beginning with its philosophy. He shares the concepts he teaches every day in practice and shows you the drills he uses to help motivate his players to succeed on the defensive end.
Coach White builds the foundation of the defense with a series of build-up drills that eventually lead to a full 5-on-5 competitive scrimmage. The drills are taught and run early in the season to ensure good habits. They also help players understand the expectations for each individual possession throughout the season.
You will see the Gladiator Drill, which Coach White uses to teach three very important defensive concepts. Taking a charge, cutting off the baseline, and executing the proper closeout are all essentials to quality team defensive play.
Basketball Defensive Drills for the Ball Screen
With today’s offenses so dependent upon the ball screen, Coach White introduces the 2-on-2 Defending the Screen Drill. The idea is to train players to execute the appropriate defense when playing against the ball screen. Having defenders that understand how to defend against ball screens is an absolute must in today’s game.
Since games are won and lost on odd-number matchups, Coach White demonstrates the 5-on-4 drill where players are forced to deal with this advantage/disadvantage for a full 1:30. The drill requires absolute focus and effort, great communication, and adherence to proper techniques to have success.
Coach White explains how these drills help to create a competitive nature in practice every day. He forces his kids to compete by having a winner and a loser in every practice. Doing so has helped White’s players prepare for real games.
