Dynamic Defense


Dynamic Defense is a framework designed to train your players (individually and as a team) through four levels of defensive achievement.


Level 1 focuses on 1-on-1 defense: techniques for guarding the ball effectively on the half court and full court. Level 2 teaches how to guard away from the ball in every position including the post.


In Level 3 the individual skills of the previous levels are expanded to the team with an emphasis on properly defending situations. Level 4 is the black belt of defense where a player (or team) learns high level rotate and recovery techniques.



The emphasis of this workout is Dynamic Defense Level 1, specifically, cutting off the drive into the lane. Rick takes you through several stages of building and testing your level 1 Defense.
