This drill is the fourth in our 2 Post Offense Coaching Progression Series that works on establishing and reinforcing primary offensive concepts in the 2 post offense. The previous drill in this series is the Catch at the Cones 3v3 Slip Screen Drill. In this drill we focus on three core concepts:
- Entering the ball into the post.
- Quality post seal to receive pass.
- Receiving that entry as deep as possible (Paint Catch).
- Skip Pass to provide entry angles.
- Coach enters the ball to one wing or another.
- Strong side post is looking to seal and establish position in the block and paint area.
- Guards are allowed 1 dribble to improve passing angle but are otherwise stationary.
- Guards should get in the habit of "Fake a pass, make a pass" each time they look to make an entry.
- If the guard cannot make an entry pass they should make a skip pass across to the other wing.
- If post cannot get a seal, look to screen across.
- If sealing to one side, use one arm to leverage defender and other arm to offer a target for the pass.
- If post acquires a full seal, show two target hands wide calling for basketball.
- If post is at a disadvantage in the battle for position, create space then re-establish contact in a stronger position.
- If working with youth levels, use coach as a reversal or add another play to reverse the ball to. (Youth may not be able to skip the ball across).
- Priority is receiving the post entry in the best possible position to score. The closer to the basket the higher the percentage of players being able to score it.
