Trap Defense Basketball DVDs for Rent

The Trap Defense in Basketball takes various forms.  You can run a trap defense in the full or half court.  Trapping the offense means putting two players on the ball and containing that player so that they have to pass out of the two person trap.  The defense will make any pass out of the trap as difficult as possible hoping to cause a turnover by the offense.

Half Court Trap Defense

A half court trap defense in basketball will typically be in a 1-3-1 set.  The goal of a trapping defense is to use the sidelines as extra defenders so the traps areas on the court are next to the sidelines.  Now you can run any formation you want in the half court and even run a man to man half court trapping defense.  You can run any full court trapping defense in the half court by just adjusting it to the half court.

Why Trap Half Court vs. Full Court?

When you trap in the full court one advantage is that if you get a steal you are typically closer to your own basket which makes it easier to score.  The other team also has to worry more about getting the ball across half court before a ten second violation occurs.

An advantage to a half court trap is that there are more players in a smaller space.  This makes it more difficult to throw long passes that can beat the defense.  It also makes it harder for players who are good dribblers and are fast to beat you off the dribble. With more open space in a full court trap a player that is quick and can dribble can more easily beat the defense if they don't contain the dribbler very well.

Cliff Ellis (Rental)-Pressing Options Out Of A 1--2--1--1 $15.99
Cliff Ellis: Pressing Options Out of a 1-2-1-1 Will you be ready to press your opponent when you absolutely have to? Coastal Carolina head coach Cliff Ellis has over 850 career wins, six conference coach of the year awards, and a national coach of the year award (1999) under his belt. In this video, Coach Ellis teaches his patented 1-2-1-1 full-court press. He does an outstanding job of describing each individual responsibility and role within the press as well as all the details that make the press a great strategy. The press is for both cautious and more aggressive coaches. Those that are cautious will find security in the many effective ideas that are taught on how to avoid being beaten down the court in transition. Aggressive coaches will learn how to get into multiple trapping opportunities and how to press off of a missed shot. Coach Ellis shows you how to start the press in a more conservative manner to begin. The full-court press can also morph into a three-quarter court press that will keep opponents off balance. The press becomes very aggressive as Ellis teaches players how to trap on the first inbound pass. Wings learn when and where to trap as Ellis tapes off sections of the court. This helps players understand how to move when the ball is passed. He teaches both the middle man and the safety how to “lie in the weeds” in order to force ball movement for a trap. The most important part of any press, according to Ellis, is the recovery. Coach Ellis goes deep into demonstrating and teaching how to recover from the press. The final part of the video is where Ellis explains a number of different situations to put players through right from Day 1. He talks about a “multiply” situation where players must scramble into a secondary press if a steal occurs and a basket is made. You will see how to defend the four basic passes out of the initial trap. Coach Ellis also shows you how to switch from a conservative 1-2-1-1 full-court press to a more aggressive three-quarter court “12 Press” when the ball is passed backwards in the press. These pressure concepts will create panic in your opponents and allow your team to capitalize on their indecisions.

Full Court 1--3--1 Trapping by Bob Huggins Instructional Basketball Coaching Video
Bob Huggins (Rental)-Full Court 1--3--1 Trapping $15.99
Huggins' defense was born out of necessity in the early stages of his career. It is a regular part of Huggins' program. This defense is introduced by player-by-player assignments. The goal is to split the court in half, from basket to basket. The defense will keep the ball on the same side as the offensive player once it is on the other side. Ball pressure is a key factor in keeping the offensive player away from throwing skip passes or reversing the ball. A 5-on-5 zone drill with slides is shown. Huggins moves the zone press up to the floor making it a full-court attack. It is crucial to keep the ball inbounds once it is in the court. The ball is not in the hands of players who are away from it. They must be on the line and up to the line so that the ball does not cross the area. There are two ways to play this full court trap: a regular or a speed them up approach. The goal is protected, anticipated, or trapped by the players. Each of these duties can be broken down into multiple teaching points. 53 minutes. 2007.

Andrew Grantz (Rental)-Full Court Trapping System $15.99
Full Court Trapping System and Breakdown Drills Indiana University Southeast was one of the top defensive and scoring teams in the nation using a full-court pressure system that created havoc for opponents. In this video, coaches Andrew Grantz and Trae Cunningham lay out the entire full court trapping system by demonstrating White, 22, 1 Up, Face, and Double Face presses. The use of each will leave opponents guessing what’s coming next. White Press White is a full-court 1-2-1-1 press that looks to trap when the ball is in the short corner. You will see where to place players on the floor to maximize havoc with deflections and steals. The coaches place an emphasis on getting a good trap at the start of the defense and they expain what to do if the trap is broken. 22 Press The 22 Press is a soft 2-2-1 full-court defense that can lull your opponents into a false sense of security. The idea is to bait the offense toward the sideline where an unexpected trap is forced on them. You will see how to pressure the ball handler, force him to pass the ball backwards, and keep the ball out of the middle of the floor. 1 Up Press This is a man-to-man press designed to keep the ball handler under control and in front of the defense at all times. Coach Grantz and Coach Cunningham then take it a step further and execute the run-and-jump out of the 1 Up Press. This helps to gain a defensive advantage and keep offenses on their heels. Face & Double Face When facing a team with an outstanding ball handler or a player that is extremely hot, Coach Grantz and Coach Cunningham go to another form of the man-to-man press - Face and Double Face. These presses isolate an opponent’s best player and attempt to force a weaker ball handler into traps to force turnovers. Each of these schemes is broken down and detailed with drills included. There is a series of buildup drills that teach players the most important elements of trapping defenses. You’ll see how players are taught to have their ear to the chest of their opponent, how to have active hands, and how to transition into defense right after a made basket. With a pressing system that constantly changes where traps occur on the floor, Indiana University Southeast achieved a high level of success and won over 100 games in five years. Using this system, your team can do the same. Rent this full court trap DVD today.
