Teaching ball-screen decision-making is coverage dependent and Coach Miller does a fantastic job on sharing different solutions for attacking conservative and aggressive coverages thru a games-approach to teaching. Whether you use the ball-screen conceptually or in your continuity, these SSG's will enhance your style of play as you teach player's how to create advantage. Purchasing this PDF on SSG's for Ball-Screen Offense, will give you context on where to space your player's in a SSG that directly translate's to Live 5v5 play. Coach Miller also shows how to use different ball-screen angles to create advantage, how front-side and back-side player's should space before the point of the screen and relocate after the point of the screen, and concepts to manipulate ball-screen coverage before the point of the screen. This will be a go-to PDF for me to stimulate ideas for my practice design and I know it will add tremendous value to your SSG library.

With these SSG's, Coach Miller is providing a great teaching tool for all coaches. Whether you run a ball screen offense or only a few screens each game, this booklet provides creative ways to break down ball screens in practice. Each rep gives players a chance to see a ball screen and make decisions. Teaching through Coach Miller's SSG's for Ball Screens puts your players through a high number of game speed reps in a short amount of time.
