14 Proven Defensive Drills to Shut Down Your Opponents and Win More Games!
It's the one thing your basketball team can always control.
Some days... your offense just doesn't click.
Your kids can't hit the side of a barn with their jumpers. They forget how to dribble... or can't catch a simple pass.
But you can always ratchet up the defensive intensity... put pressure on your opponents... and make it hard for the other team to score.
So What Makes a Great Defensive Team?
Technique. And effort.
If you can teach your kids the fundamentals of individual and team defense
... how to close out against shooters... how to provide help from the weak side... how to finish a posession with a solid box out and rebound...
And... if you can motivate them to compete with high level of intensity...
Then you'll always be in the game. No matter who your playing.
