In this course, coaches will learn how to teach the basic fundamentals of individual and team defense. Beginning with defensive form, this course breaks down the defensive stance, the close out and varying defensive positions and responsibilities on and off the basketball. The course progresses to detail half-court team defensive concepts of help side and help and recover defense, as well as drills to teach defensive footwork, slides and guarding the dribbler.
