(Rental)-Basketball Program Management Insights & Defense Drills
In this on-court presentation, Coach Steve Forbes, a former assistant for Billy Gillispie, Bruce Pearl and Gregg Marshall, shares the lessons he learned from these successful coaches and how he uses them to build successful programs wherever he's been a head coach. He covers the core tenants of his defensive philosophy and how they can be incorporated with other teams.
Coach Forbes starts the presentation by discussing the importance of developing a program identity and the importance of practicing with that identity in mind. He emphasizes six aspects of the game in practice: skill development, pressure shooting, transition defense, rebounding, half-court defense, and offensive execution.
He then goes on to explain his approach to teaching defense, including the importance of focusing on the little things, keeping things simple and using Zig Zag, Raptor Transition and Shell Drill to teach and emphasize different defensive concepts. He shows how to use these drills to help players understand their role, communicate and handle different situation.
In the video, Coach Forbes shares drills and concepts that have helped him build team defense and promote a culture of gritty, tough defense. The video is approximately 69 minutes long and is available in 2021.
