Multiple Basketball Press Defense: Pressing System in the Full & Half Court: Using a Numbering System to Simplify Your Presses
Kurt Guelsdorf, former girls head coach at Oregon City (OR) High School, used a multiple pressing system to lead his teams to over 450 wins and three state championships (2004, 2009, 2014). In this video, Coach Guelsdorf shares with you the pressing system that created a fun, up-tempo style of play that led to his program’s success. You’ll see exactly how he switched coverages instantly to confuse opponents.
The Basketball Press Defense System
Coach Guelsdorf’s system uses a variety of presses from man-to-man to zone presses like the 2-2-1, 1-2-2, and the Diamond 1-2-1-1. What makes Coach Guelsdorf’s system so easy is the use of a numbering system. Once the numbering system is mastered, Guelsdorf shows you how to break the court into thirds in an effort to teach players where they need to be to force the offense and create trapping angles.
Basketball Press Defense Coaching Points
One of Coach Guelsdorf’s most important coaching points related to pressing defenses is that you are going to give up some easy points at times. He preaches that you cannot make the same mistake three times in a row. Pressing teams have to be able to adjust on the fly and Coach Guelsdorf’s system allows for that. The pressure will break down some times, but players must be reminded that the system wears opponents down over the course of a game creating opportunities later in games.
As far as the technical aspect of pressing defenses, Coach Guelsdorf will talk about the “closest man” rule which makes using any press simple. Players must have active hands, feet, and eyes at all times. They also must be able to sprint from one side of the floor to the other to give the appearance that there are no holes in your press. If you do get beat at some point, the ability to trail and tip is a key in recovering.
Basketball Press Defense Breakdown Drills
After outlining the system and each of the numbered presses, Coach Guelsdorf gets into the drills he uses to make his players sharp and prepared for anything an opponent might do. The drills include:
- Mad Dog Drill: Use to find best out-of-bounds defender
- Punch Drill: Helps players learn to punch the ball from behind and switch to offense immediately
- Turn Drill: Teaches players to apply pressure on the ball and force traps
- 2-on-2 & 3-on-3 Trap: Players learn to rotate and use closest man rule when trapping
- Running Groups: Teaches the entire team to flow seamlessly from one press to another
