The drills you will see are great for developing positive defensive habits and they work as conditioning drills as well. Defensive concepts you will see include on-ball defense, full court defense, half-court defense, and stopping an opponent’s best player. Individual On-Ball Defense Coach Bruno demonstrates a number of drills that will improve your overall team defense. There are drills to establish an athletic defensive stance, where all defense begins. You will also see drills that develop explosive slides and train players to stay in front of the ball. Proper stance and technique can help minimize breakdowns that result from players getting beat off the dribble. This is where you will see improvements in your team defense. Half-Court Defense Coach Bruno introduces four drills designed to improve your half-court defense. The Close Out and Sprint to Help Line Drill works on close out technique and positioning relative to the ball. The 2-on-2 version of the drill forces players to help with dribble penetration before closing out to recover on the skip pass. Two drills emphasize denial defense and how your players can take out a defender. The Continuous Denial drill can be run in both 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 situations. Players deny the wing and cut off the baseline while defending the ball. The second drill forces players to fight through multiple screens while trying to deny the basketball. Transition and Full Court Defense Transition defense is an important part of any team’s defensive package. Coach Bruno brings you four drills to improve your defensive play in transition. The 5-on-5 Across the Free Throw Line Drill challenges your defense to communicate and scramble in a temporary disadvantage situation. The Jump and Run Actions series is perfect for breaking down full court defense. Players work in either a 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 situation and apply maximum pressure to the ball. The drill teaches players how to rotate when switches occur. All of Coach Bruno’s drills can be done without a ball and can help any team at any level to improve its pressure defense and minimize easy baskets. This 74-minute video is full of creative drills that will not only put your team to the defensive test, it will also improve your players’ conditioning.
