with Kurt Guelsdorf,
former Oregon City High School (OR) Girl's Head Coach;
450+ career wins;
3x State Championships ('04, '09, '14)

Long-time head coach Kurt Guelsdorf has always worked to put his players in the best possible situation to be successful. Over the years, he has learned and studied some of the best coaches in today's game, including innovator/founder of the dribble drive motion offense, Vance Walberg.

In this video, Coach Guelsdorf demonstrates numerous sets and entries that are simple and easy to implement with your team within the dribble drive offense.

Coaching Points

Starting with basic alignments, Guelsdorf sets up the dribble drive motion offense, making sure you understand where to look for open driving gaps and lanes. Within the offense, he shows how to properly space out your players in order to maximize driving angles. As your team swings the ball from side to side, you will create more open gap opportunities and be able to use the backdoor option as your players attack the middle of the floor.

False Motion and Isolation

In seven different sets and entries, Guelsdorf demonstrates and explains the importance of false action as a way to set up the defense and create scoring opportunities for your best players. In Rocket, he uses a series of loop cuts as the ball is swung around the perimeter to create an open driving gap from the wing to set up a pitch back to your shooting guard. This opens a great scoring opportunity for a shot or easy drive to the rim.

In his isolation sets, Guelsdorf overloads one side of the floor to open up space for your best player to operate. You can even utilize your post players in an isolation play using various cuts, giving your best post player room in the paint.

3-Point Specials

Next, you'll get various 3-point special plays that will provide your best shooter an open look from anywhere using ball screen-flare screen action off a drive. These are great sets for you to use at the end of the quarter, after a timeout, or if you need a last-second buzzer beater!

Box Sets and BLOBS

Rounding out this advanced look at the dribble drive motion offense, Guelsdorf includes box sets and baseline out of bounds sets that flow right into your dribble drive motion offense. Using some of the same concepts as you overload one side of the floor, you can use mismatches to your advantage and open driving gaps for your best players.

Coach Guelsdorf gives you a detailed look at how you can improve your dribble drive motion offense using simple sets and entries that flow right into dribble drive action. Whether you're looking for another set to create a scoring opportunity or more actions to get the ball moving in your offense, you'll get it all, and more, in this video!

3x State Championships ('04, '09, '14)

In this video, 3x high school state champion head coach Kurt Guelsdorf demonstrates the pressing system that allowed him to create a fun, up-tempo style of play for his players. He provides every trick in his defensive repertoire to help you build a full court press that can easily shift coverages in a moment's notice to confuse and stop the opposing offense.

System

Using 10s, 20s, 30s, and 40s, Coach Guelsdorf has created a system that is easy to understand and easy to follow. From a man-to-man press to zone presses such as the 2-2-1, 1-2-2 and the Diamond 1-2-1-1, your team will have multiple pressing and attacking options to use against your opponents. Once you have the numbering system in place, Guelsdorf shows how to break the court into thirds for your players to see where they are supposed to force the offense and create the best trapping angles.

Multiple Pressing System in the Full & Half Court: Using a Numbering System to Simplify Your Presses

with Kurt Guelsdorf,
former Oregon City High School (OR) Girl's Head Coach;
450+ career wins;
3x State Championships ('04, '09, '14)

In this video, 3x high school state champion head coach Kurt Guelsdorf demonstrates the pressing system that allowed him to create a fun, up-tempo style of play for his players. He provides every trick in his defensive repertoire to help you build a full court press that can easily shift coverages in a moment's notice to confuse and stop the opposing offense.

From a man-to-man press to zone presses such as the 2-2-1, 1-2-2 and the Diamond 1-2-1-1, your team will have multiple pressing and attacking options to use against your opponents. Once you have the numbering system in place, Guelsdorf shows how to break the court into thirds for your players to see where they are supposed to force the offense and create the best trapping angles.

Coaching Points

Pressing teams must be able to emphasize a few important concepts and adjust on the fly. Guelsdorf explains that by not making the same mistake three times in the row, your team will quickly learn how to stop your opponent's best scoring opportunities. Understanding that teams will score against you and you will give up some layups is an important element to understand. Your press will be broken, but your system continuously fatigues your opponent, which will create dividends multiple times over the course of a game.

On the technical side of things, the "closest man" rule within your trapping system will make using any of your presses simple. Using active hands, feet and eyes, your team will be able to sprint from one side of the floor to the other, making it seem as though there are no openings or flows in your press. If you do get beat, the ability to trail and tip is a key element to recovering in your press defense.

Breakdown Drills

After demonstrating the alignment of all your numbered presses, Coach Guelsdorf outlines simple and effective drills you can use in practice to make your players sharp and prepared for any situation.

Drills include:

  • Mad Dog Drill - Use to quickly discover your best out-of-bounds defender.
  • Punch Drill - Use to help players learn how to tip the ball from behind to the next line of defense and switch into offensive mode right away to score.
  • Turn Drill - Teaches athletes to apply massive pressure on the ball and force sideline to get traps in your press.
  • 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 Trap - Learn how to rotate and take advantage of the closest defender rule when it comes to trapping.
  • Running Groups - Teaches your entire team how to flow seamlessly from one press to the next on the coach's call.
  • Using many presses can be confusing for your players if your numbering system is poorly organized. If your team likes to get up and down the floor, then consider using Coach Guelsdorf's numbering system to attack with various pressing styles and cut down on mental errors.

    Open Practice with T.J. Otzelberger: Offense

    with T.J. Otzelberger,
    South Dakota State University Head Coach;
    2018 Summit League Coach of the Year;
    2018 Summit League Regular Season Champions;
    former Assistant Coach at Iowa State University and the University of Washington

    Up-and-coming head coach T.J. Otzelberger has implemented a fast-paced style of play at South Dakota State. Through his coaching philosophy, his players have learned to play at an up-tempo pace on both offense and defense.

    In this video, you'll get an inside look at how Coach Otz teaches transition play into an attacking half court offense. Additionally, you'll learn how to craft a competitive practice session that gets players focused on one possession at a time.

    Transition

    A staple of Coach Otzelberger's offense is transition and getting the ball into the scoring area as quickly as possible to put pressure on the defense. He details how to push the ball up and down the floor and use your fast break to attack gaps in the defense. Using various transition drills, Otzelberger outlines how he creates a culture of playing fast with the goal of scoring at the rim as quickly as possible.

    Skill Development

    During the skill development portion of this video, you'll see two opportunities where players are broken out into two different groups. Each session is centered around creating driving angles in a gap or a double gap setting. Posts learn to rotate as the drive comes toward the basket while guards learn to attack and recognize gaps as the ball is moved around the court. In the second session, guards and posts learn to take pride in their defense.

    Half Court Play

    Once in the half court, Otzelberger demonstrates various actions he likes to use to open the floor up for driving angles or create downhill action as fast as possible. In the 6 Possession game, players get up and down the floor in transition and utilize dribble hand-offs, step up screens, and flip actions to get the offense going.

    This open practice video gives you a detailed look at a fast-paced style of play. Coach Otzelberger does an excellent job of breaking down the actions that will lead to open gaps and driving angles for your players to attack.

    former Assistant Coach at Iowa State University and the University of Washington

    T.J. Otzelberger, a rising star in college basketball coaching, shares an inside look into how he teaches his defensive system. Everything about Otzelberger's defense is designed to force opponents into tough shots and then rebound the basketball to quickly transition into offense and score easy buckets. Once you're done watching this video, you will understand why his teams are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the country for defensive rebounding.

    Stance, Slides, and Closeouts

    Defense begins with the basics: stance, slide, and closing out. Coach Otzelberger demonstrates how his team uses low, wide, and active stances. Keeping active hands allows players to use their hands as weapons to deflect passes, but avoid fouling. High, early hands on a closeout ensures your players attack the shooter as they prepare to load for a shot. This defensive style will help your team disrupt any offensive action.

    Ball Screen Defense

    In today's game, having lock-down ball screen defense is a must. Your team must be prepared with multiple ways to defend a ball screen while also having a go-to defense that can disrupt even the best ball handlers. In his side ball screen defense segment, Otzelberger teaches his players to have a wide, open stance and wall up/chest up the driver as they come off the ball screen.

    Alley Drill

    Continuing to build 1-on-1 defense, the Alley Drill pushes players to their limits. In this competitive drill, each team sends their athletes through the "alley." Defensive players work to keep their opponent in front of them in the lane line alley. They have to use good angles to cut off offensive players and force them to turn.

    Coach Otzleberger demonstrates how to build a defensive philosophy from the ground up to ensure your team uses constant ball pressure and active hands. This is a great video for any coach looking to pick up a few new defensive drills or add to their own defensive philosophy.
