Featuring Coach K in his element – on the court at the legendary Cameron Indoor Stadium on Duke’s campus – you will watch as he takes you through 20-plus drills and strategies that will help you improve on defense. Coach K has coached six National Defensive Players of the Year. He knows what it takes to be an outstanding defender and presents that in this video.
Basketball Agility Drills to Develop Great Defenders
The basketball agility drills presented will help your players develop the most basic of defensive skills including controlling the movement of a ball handler, disrupting passing lanes, and challenging shooters. The idea of elite defenses is to force opponents into situations where they either take a bad shot or turn the ball over. To do so requires athletes that are in great physical shape that also have sound defensive mechanics.
All of Coach K’s drills are competitive, which challenges players at all times. While your players will build their level of conditioning, the drills also teach important defensive concepts such as transition defense, increasing pressure on the ball, and weak-side help defense. Coach K will also help you take these drills a step further by creating game-like situations so your players can practice what might happen on the defensive end of the floor.
The drills presented by Coach K can be used throughout an entire season to not only improve your team’s defense, but also to build and maintain a level of physical conditioning. The drills are also useful for any level of competition. If they work for Coach K, they can work for you and your program as well.
