Sherri Coale delivers an amazing defensive DVD that will expose you and your players to a wide variety of defensive systems. You will gain a basic understanding of defensive systems and you're sure to find one that will fit your team's defensive strengths.

Man-to-Man Defense
Build your man-to-man defensive principles using a variety of live ball reaction drills and a mirror drill that will train your players to guard a basic cutter, the jab step, a change of direction move, or a dead ball situation. Jumping to the ball, defensive close-out technique, ball screen defense and a basic defensive stance are all explained and drilled.

Use Coale's 1-on-0 closeouts and full court closeouts to make sure your players have the proper hand up to contest a shot and are able and ready to slide in front of any player who puts the ball on the floor.

Learn the basic ball-you-man relationship your players must have to be successful whether they are 1, 2, or 3 passes away from the ball. Teach your players how to defend a variety of different cuts and dribble penetrations from every angle on the floor using a 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 shell drill. This all builds up to a 5-on-5 shell drill that incorporates all of the man defense skills.

Zone, Trapping, and Junk Defense
Coale demonstrates how to play a 2-3 zone, 3-2 zone, and a 1-3-1 trapping zone in the half court setting - and reminds coaches how important it is to use man principles when playing a zone.

Need to turn up the pressure? Coale shows you how to run a full court zone trap. Whether it's a diamond-and-1 or 2-2-1 press, you can force your opponents to catch the ball in dangerous territory and lock them down with two defenders. She also shows you how to use your interceptors and safety to create uncertainty for the trapped ball handler.

Coale also provides an overview of the triangle-and-2 or box-and-1 defense to help you shut down that offensive star that is killing you.

Post Defense
In order to build a successful defense, you have to have a strong post presence. Coach Coale outlines how to effectively build a great post defender and how to trap in the post.

This DVD highlights the key principles, alignments and techniques you need to create lock-down defense!

Sherri Coale provides viewers with a complete tutorial on all things offense. Whether you are looking for a continuity man offense, set plays, or a zone offense, you will find something you can implement immediately into your offensive system to make you team successful.

Man-to-Man Offense
Coach Coale provides a basic outline to a man-to-man continuity system that is easy to install - and can be the foundation for building a motion system. She demonstrates and outlines her 5-Game Motion Offense which is ideal for a team whose players are the same size and skill level. The screen away motion creates good movement with two players coming to the ball off of a screen.

She also outlines and demonstrates a 4-Game Motion Offense. This offense allows you to keep a post player near the basket and incorporates cuts and screens while spreading the floor to create dribble penetration.

In both offenses, Coale shows how to use the cuts and skills taught in the offensive fundamental DVD and how to incorporate them into a continuity offense.

Zone Offense
Learn how to use your post players to seal in and seal out in order to create advantages in the post against the middle man of a 2-3 zone. Coale demonstrates how players can attack the gaps by asking themselves "who is guarding me" and "where did they come from." With this mentality, your players will be able to attack a zone defense from any angle on the floor including the most obvious spot: the high post.

Just as Coach Coale demonstrated a set play to counter man defense, she also demonstrates several easy to teach sets against a zone. The sets contain multiple scoring looks that become available when the defense takes away the primary look.

Sideline and Baseline Inbounds
Instead of looking to "just get the ball in," Coach Coale outlines several scoring options against zone and man defense from a baseline out of bounds or sideline out of bounds set. In each set, she walks you through every scoring option and how to tweak these options to keep you opponents on their toes.

Transition
Coale outlines what an offensive player needs to do every time down the floor on a fast break: Get fouled, move the ball, and make a decision. She details a basic secondary break that your players can use to score from the inside or the outside against any defense, how to teach the secondary break and how to make it flow easily into your continuity offense.

Press Breakers
Coach Coale uses her final segment to build a full court press break that will quickly and efficiently break either a man or a zone defense. She teaches her players to keep it simple and then drills the idea in a 2-on-2 safe and secure drill that teaches her players to be strong with the ball. She finishes with two last-second plays that are able to get your best players the shot they need to win the game.

Coach Coale does a great job of providing the fundamentals to team offense. Using the offenses and plays presented on this DVD, you can create a winning offensive system for your team!

One of the most important parts of the game of basketball is also one of the hardest to master. Now you have help!

In this video Sherri Coale shows you how to build - or become - a great shooter. Coach Coale demonstrates and guides you through a practical shooting progression that any player can use to build a successful jump shot. You'll get a ton of individual and partner drills for building a successful shot.

Coale's progression starts with stationary drills - with and without a ball - to help players focus on the individual components of the shot.

As the progression continues, players start shooting at the basket to further develop their shooting form and their confidence. Coale demonstrates a drill called Killers to check players' form and to build muscle memory through continuous repetition.

After mastering shooting form, footwork is added to the progression. Your players will learn how to use their feet to get square to the rim on the hop and to pivot into their shot.

Then Coale adds shooting off the dribble. She teaches her players to use the dribble as a pass to yourself and how to use the last dribble to get into the cock and lock position to shoot, using their strong or weak hand.

The final step in the progression takes place at free throw line. Players use everything they've learned about shooting to perfect their free throws. Coale demonstrates the process of free throw shooting in two phases: setting your feet and having routine and rhythm in your shot.

All of the drills in this DVD are demonstrated with a group of players, so you can see how to use the progression in a practice setting.

Sherri Coale is a master teacher with a blueprint for shooting success!

Sherri Coale went from a high school coach to a major DI program by being a "fundamentals" coach. In this DVD from Championship Productions and the AAU, Coach Coale teaches fundamental skills in four key areas. These skills will make your players effective in any offense.

Cutting
Create gaps in the defense that can be attacked for a score. Learn basket cutting, V-cuts, L-cuts, and back cuts and how they can be executed to free your players from a defender. Using 2-on-0, 3-on-0 and 4-on-0 drills, Coale shows how these cuts become a cornerstone for a great player and how you can take advantage of any defense.

Screening
Screens can provide several scoring opportunities from one basic action depending on how the defense plays you. Coale teaches how to set a proper screen that will allow your shooters and cutters to get open anywhere on the court. She also demonstrates the responsibilities for both the screener and receiver of the screen. Your players will greatly benefit from Coach Coale's 2-on-0 series that teaches down screens, flare screens, pin screens and back screens.

Feeding the Post
Attack the interior of the defense while providing scoring options for your perimeter players. Coale demonstrates how to post up, how to execute a post feed from the perimeter and how to cut or relocate for an open shot. You will learn the turn-and-face move for post players and how your post can "muscle on the top."

Spacing
With poor spacing, your players become easy to guard. Coale outlines several ways a player can move when a teammate is driving to the basket. This is an essential skill for any motion offense. Players need to be able to cut and relocate without the ball in order to create better scoring options. Coale does a fantastic job demonstrating how to move off of a chase and space, crack, and a drift drive by using a 4-on-0 driving drill where players are driving from the wing, baseline, or middle of the floor.

With the emphasis on building better players, your team's success will also improve.

Basketball is a team game, but your players need individual skills to perform their best - and to help your team succeed.

University of Oklahoma Women's Basketball Coach Sherri Coale provides a smorgasbord of 20+ individual skill developmental drills that stress the importance of grooming fundamental skills prior to players entering a team-based environment.

Coach Coale teaches you the basic skills any post player will need to be successful at any level of play. She stresses footwork and the need to do the work early in the possession to establish an advantageous post position. These drills aim at developing hand-eye coordination (in order to cleanly receive a post entry pass), utilization of the power dribble to create space, body positioning to prevent blocked shots and to seal off a defender, and finishing around the rim (as well as in transition).

Coach Coale describes in detail the most important part of post play, establishing your position. More post touches equals more points. In order to do this, she shows you how to effectively teach your players about catching the basketball - especially while taking contact - with her hands package. This package teaches post players how to properly catch the ball and put it into a "vice" position at the chin in order to execute any move. Coale uses the Mikan Drill to teach her players how to finish around the rim once they catch the basketball. In her Love Series, Coach Coale diagrams how post players are can effectively execute a catch, pivot, and square to the rim maneuver.

You will be able to implement any number of shooting drills for your post players right away. Coale demonstrates their V-Cut series in the post which teaches her players to catch at a fast pace, while getting a lot of reps in game spots at game speed.

University of Oklahoma Women's Basketball Coach Sherri Coale provides a smorgasbord of 20+ individual skill developmental drills that stress the importance of grooming fundamental skills prior to players entering a team-based environment.

Ballhandling
This DVD includes a great ballhandling progression that takes your players through stationary ballhandling drills such as pounding the ball, figure eights, wrap arounds, and 2-ball drills. This builds up to more complex drills that help develop trust in the hands while keeping your eyes looking up the floor.

Passing & Catching
Perimeter players need to become familiar with multiple passing options beyond the basic chest or bounce pass. Coale details how to teach your players to use their feet and catch the ball in a triple threat position, putting them into catch-and-shoot position as soon as the ball is received. Partner passing, shooting off of down-screens, up-screens, and flare-screens are also on display.

Shooting
The DVD wraps up with how to properly develop players to shoot game shots, at game spots, at game speed. Coale takes you through the basic screening and cutting action to get your best shooters open and in position to score when you need them. She perfects the concepts of setting a down screen, back screen, flare screen, and pin screen so your players learn how to execute a game shot playing at their speed.

AAU Coaching Boys Basketball Series: Individual Defense Drills
Featuring Fran Fraschilla,
International Basketball Analyst for ESPN, former Division I college basketball coach (Manhattan College, St. John's University and University of New Mexico), former NABC District II Coach of the Year and MAAC Coach of the Year

Dump that soft defense and create a fundamental attacking defense that your kids will love to play and will allow them to compete against a more athletic team.

In this video, Fran Fraschilla teaches you how to build proper defensive fundamentals, footwork, and technique using a series of drills that are designed to be logical, progressive, and habitual in nature.

Using a mix of youth players and high school age players, Fraschilla demonstrates drills that escalate from 1v1 to 2v2 to 4v4 emphasizing help defense and on-ball-pressure. Using drill progressions - drills that build on each other - you can teach one concept after another making it easy for your players to understand.

On the court, Coach Fraschilla takes you through four sets of "build up" drills starting with the defensive stance and working his way up to 5-on-5 man defense - with a 2-3 zone thrown in. These drills develop footwork, defensive positioning, slides, closeouts, helpside positioning, on-ball defense, foot faking, and more.

Being able to defend in the full court and in transition takes away a huge offensive advantage. A transition defense series is briefly touched upon using two drills that put the defense at a disadvantage to work on concepts need to defend the break and conversion from offense to defense.

Put everything together using Fraschilla's shell drill to simulate 5-on-5 half court defense. You will see six unique concepts within the shell drill that will help you develop a cohesive defense through several types of offensive attacks. The shell defense series teaches concepts such as rebounding, denying the cutter, help defense, communication and protecting the rim.

From techniques and tactics to positioning and cutters, Fran Fraschilla will help you build a defensive system that is capable of shutting down any opponent and teaching your players how to play the game. Any coach, new or old, will get a ton of tools to teach the fundamental concepts needed to be dominate on the defensive end.

AAU Coaching Boys Basketball Series: Fast Break and Secondary Break
Featuring Fran Fraschilla,
International Basketball Analyst for ESPN, former Division I college basketball coach (Manhattan College, St. John's University and University of New Mexico), former NABC District II Coach of the Year and MAAC Coach of the Year

Most AAU/youth teams run more breaks than half court sets. Teaching the kids how to run the break is a key component of any offense. Fran Fraschilla highlights the desire for easy, quick, transition opportunities to be the primary focus of any offensive attack. Via both white board and on court interaction, Coach Fraschilla diagrams and demonstrates the court positioning of the players within the primary and secondary fast break set-up.

Coach Fraschilla addresses the questions coaches need to ask themselves as they prepare a plan for their team. What is your rebounding philosophy? Do you need a screen and roll offense? Do you have an extraordinary player that would benefit from isolations? These and other questions are posed and will help any coach develop a plan of attack.

On the technical end, Fraschilla demonstrates his "Fast Breaks" showing you how to win when your team outnumbers the opponent. His "Secondary Break" options seamlessly flow from the fast break and into both set offenses that he shows.

Fast Break
A fast break sets the foundation for any offensive system because it allows you to get easy buckets. Coach Fraschilla demonstrates how to execute layup options for your wing players and for your post player making a rim run. Incorporate his 2-on-1, 3-on-1, and 3-on-2 fast break build up drills to teach your players to shoot first until the defense commits to stopping you.

Secondary Offense
Learn an organized secondary offense that will allow your offense to flow in a systematic way. This system gives your players an organized offense to run - when the fast break is not open - that runs right into a set. Using white board diagrams, Fraschilla walks you through the steps to build a successful secondary break. Being able to flow from transition into an effective set play helps to take advantage of a defense that may not be fully organized.

Basketball is won or lost by getting the easy shoots. An organized fast break allows your players to understand how and where to go to create easier scoring opportunities.

Don't settle for a mediocre or soft defense ever again! Fran Fraschilla will show you how easy it is to build a solid man-to-man defense that will pressure the ball and stop dribble penetration.

Coach Fraschilla reveals his secrets to building a strong defensive system by describing in detail the four things any good defense needs. Each concept includes a walk through with players and a break down of the common mistakes. Fraschilla's passion and teaching style makes it easy for any coach to pick up these simple yet important concepts.

Using various 2-on-2, 3-on-3, and 4-on-4 drills, Frachilla shows you how to build your help side defense from the ground up. Teach your players how to help-the-helper and properly rotate to stop dribble penetration. Get help with your transition defense so your team will stop giving up easy baskets. If your team struggles against screens, you will find easy techniques that will help successfully defend screens, especially a UCLA Cut, on-ball screens from the wing, and cross screens.

To add variety to your defensive pressure, Fraschilla details a 2-3 zone defense you can incorporate as a change-of-pace defense. Want to turn up the heat on your opponent? Coach demonstrates three ways to trap out of the 2-3 zone: Half court line trap, wing trap, and deep corner trap. He does an excellent job of showing the rotations and trapping angles that can create quick turnovers and easy baskets. Fraschilla also details an aggressive 2-3 zone that shuts down the gaps and provides a segment on rebounding in the zone.

In order to complete your defensive system, Coach Fraschilla gives you a great Diamond and 1 Full Court Press to produce a trapping, attacking mentality and as a way to change the pace of the game.

If you are getting started building your defensive system, Coach Fraschilla's team defense DVD is a great way for you to develop a defensive philosophy that will give your players a chance to be successful at any level.
