Mike Krzyzewski opens the doors to legendary Cameron Indoor Stadium allowing you all access to his practices, drills, plays, philosophy and more! Explore the inner-workings of Krzyzewski's time-tested system of success and learn how you can incorporate it into your program.
This extensive DVD set includes over six hours of world class basketball instruction including two full Duke practices and multiple clinic sessions featuring Krzyzewski and assistant coaches, and former Duke players, Steve Wojciechowski and Chris Collins.
Get an all access pass to two Duke practices! Listen in as Krzyzewski provides a coaching perspective on his practices, what he teaches, why and what he will be looking for during the practices. Throughout the practices Krzyzewski provides priceless wisdom and basketball knowledge as he coaches and teaches his players, and provides coaching points for the drills and concepts he uses.
The Blue Devils run a multitude of half- and full-court drills featuring a variety of game-like situations that build up from 2-on-0 to 5-on-0 drills into an action or set play. Get a look inside Duke's split drills where post players work on various angles for the pick-and-roll and "slips," while perimeter players work on penetrate-and-kick action and shooting on the move.
Moving to the defensive side of the ball, the Blue Devils work on various three-quarter and full-court pressure defenses and off-the-ball defenses.
Assistant Coach Steve Wojciechowski explains the importance of early communication and the point of pressure concept as he covers the "Duke Method" of defending ball screens both near the top of the key and on the wing. He demonstrates and teaches the hard show technique, switching and trap techniques in tremendous detail.
Switching to offense, the Blue Devils demonstrate various techniques in breaking 2-2-1, 1-2-2 and 1-2-1-1 full court pressure defenses. Coach K demonstrates the "quick pass" concept and the "catch and face" technique in attacking full court pressure.
Assistant Coach Chris Collins introduces Duke's elbow series, which features set plays that bring the post players above the elbow to allow for great spacing. This opens up the floor for small teams to create mismatches and provides good cutting action and movement.
Every inbounds play is an opportunity to score. With that frame of mind, Collins demonstrates Duke's "Line Series" and "Box Series" of inbounds plays.
Coach K provides you with shooting drills that simulate offensive sets to better teach those sets with game-like movement. You will see how Duke attacks the zone with the post players flashing from behind the zone, and the guards driving into gaps and catching the ball shot ready. He also directs 4- and 6-minute scrimmages where players work on game situations and decision making.
Everything is brought together with nearly 90 minutes of informative "question and answer" sessions that cover topics such as Coach K's experience with the gold medal-winning USA Olympic Basketball team, Duke's method for scouting opponents, advice for young coaches, the best way to teach shooting technique and much more.
This DVD set covers nearly every facet of building a successful basketball program the Duke Blue Devil way.

I started using some of the drills the next practice! Coach K is a great leader and instructor. I'm glad that I bought this package. Well worth the price!
I appreciate this set more every time I watch it, Coach K is nothing but valuable information throughout the presentation from the Q&A to his explaining of the drills and concepts they use. The two clinics conducted by Wojo and Chris Collins were very valuable, I used Dukes line OB series to good success in my own season. Their practices really focus on breaking zones, both in the full and half court, and the concepts are applicable to anyone no matter the system so that alone is worth checking this tape out. I do wish Wojo and Collins were mic'ed during practice because they seem to do most of the coaching and I'm not a fan of the clinic setting of practice. I would have liked a more natural feel to practice and the clinic going on seemed to give it a bit of an artificial feel to me. Overall still fantastic information and worth checking out.
i really enjoyed this video. It gave a look at how one of the greatest coaches ever runs and organizes his practices. Also, really enjoyed the Questions that the coaches in attendance asked. i had a lot of the same as I watched. Great video.
What can you say about Coach K that has not already been said, the guy knows what he is doing! I'm always surprised about how prepared his teams are every year. In this video you will see why! Great emphasis on preparation and understanding what you want to teach your players. I leant lots from this video , not just drills and plays, but how to approach practices, preparation and the quality of material you decide to teach your players. the only reason I did not give this video a 5( which was really really tempting) was because there was 1 dvd which was all question and answer. And as much as I like that, it was one full dvd! and I would have liked some demonstrations to address some of the questions.
This was a quality video from the best coach in the game today. I'd highly recommend it to all coach at any level who wants to improve their ability teach and put their team in a position to win games.
This is the best video I have ever watched. Thanks for getting this on the markrt! Coach K. is the best teacher I have ever seen!
I enjoyed this DVD - as everything produced with Coach K is well done. Whether it's a video or lecture, I always seem to walk away with something new. A variety of topics are covered here - defense, offense, and player skills or drills. Plus, you get your moneys worth as it is real long - longer than three indivual DVDs.
Learning from Coach K, or any other top coach, not only makes me a better coach, but also allows me to gain "buy in" from my team. Knowing that this drill or technique is what Coach K preaches at Duke, my players have seemed to really focus in and increase their intensity.
I assumed Q&A would be answered in most cases with demos like other clinics. I gave it lower rating because 1/2 of the DVDs is talking, I would have prefer to just watch 2 practices on the 4 DVDs with some explaination of actions over the practices.
Championship Productions replies:Coaches - we appreciate all product reviews and will take them into consideration in all future products. All feedback will allow us to better serve you! Please share any success stories or new product / author suggestions with us.
In response to Coach K - the reason we included the Q&A session was because it gave the coaches in attendance the opportunity to ask a lot of great questions that we thought coaches at all levels would appreciate and benefit from. We also felt that this session would give coaches a better understanding of Coach K's philosophy on and off the court, along with his insight into the Olympic experience. Lastly the questions that coaches asked were ones the we get in our office all the time about Duke Basketball and Coach Krzyzewski. Out of the 438 minutes, we felt that these questions and answers by Coach K only enhance the video and give the buyer a better appreciation for Duke Basketball.
