Defensive System – Pack Line $ Sparta Defense
It’s no secret that defense wins championships. You can learn how to build a defensive system that takes away opponents perimeter shots in this video by well-known Canadian women’s basketball coach Chantal Vallee. The head coach of the University of Windsor women’s team and the head coach and general manager of the Hamilton Honey Badgers Canadian Elite Basketball League team, Vallee shows you how she won five straight CIS national championships. You get an inside look into a training camp session where Coach Vallee teaches her defensive system.
You will see detailed lecture complete with diagrams as well as on-court walkthroughs with players in this presentation. Coach Vallee begins with a 1-on-1 closeout drill to warmup her players then proceeds to show you how to squeeze the space your opponent can use while preventing drives with the Pack Line defense. Coach Vallee also details the Sparta man-to-man defense that has the primary purpose of eliminating the 3-point shot.
One of the primary goals of the Pack defense is to force an opponent to use their weak hand and then provide help support on any dribble penetration. Coach Vallee shows you how to build this strategy using 2-on-2 drills all the way up to a full 5-on-5. The drills work to teach players the proper defensive positioning to force opponents to go to the weak side of the floor. Coach Vallee explains how to rotate defenders on baseline drives and how rotations adjust based on the position of the post defender.
The whole idea of the Sparta defense is to prevent 3-point shots. Less help is provided in this defense as defenders work to deny their match-up. The on-ball defender must force their match-up into a low percentage shot using the proper close out, creating a cushion on the drive, and challenging the shot with what is known as the “ghosting” technique.
If you love playing man-to-man, Coach Vallee has a system that uses some unique tactics that you can incorporate into your system for maximum effect.
