The old sports adage "Defense wins championships" has been repeatedly proven by DeMatha Catholic High School. The basketball program is built on a strong defense that over recent years has produced dozens of championship teams in the highly competitive Washington D.C. area.
In this exclusive DVD, DeMatha head basketball coach Mike Jones shares the strategies that have made his school a defensive powerhouse. He begins by emphasizing proper defensive rotation to minimize middle penetration. Jones focuses on ball pressure as a way to challenge shooters and not have to worry about getting beat off the first dribble.
He shares several critical principles for developing a strong defense such as:
To help perfect defensive rotations, Jones offers a series of 10 drills to create and sustain effective defensive play. He reinforces basic techniques with advanced strategies like the "Perfect Slide," 1-on-1 full-court slides and closeout drills. He also teaches the "Wildcat Series" for staying low on defense and closing out strong.
A detailed explanation of the DeMatha Shell Drill is also presented, covering every aspect of proper defense rotation. In the 5-man shell drill, Coach Jones explains the proper techniques for covering the high and low post, denial defense, covering cutters and communicating on weakside help.
Order this DVD today to implement Mike Jones' concept into your program. Learn how to dominate the defensive end with perfect rotations used by one of the nation's most celebrated high school basketball programs.

One great DVD. Starts out with basic drills for footwork, close out 1-1 ; 2-2 and develops in a great shell drill. From the ground up explanation. Worth the money
I highly recommend this video to any coach looking to strengthen his/her ability to teach defense. Very clear instruction, a good progression of drills. Congrats to Coach Jones and DeMatha!
The close out drills are really good. I also like their shell drill. Im not sure athletically we can help the way they help but it is a great idea for when I have a more athletic team in the future. I like some of their defensive slide drills as well.
Good solid video....I picked up really good close out 1 on 1 drills, stance drills and live drills to work on defending screens. It was worth the investment.
