with Greg Kampe, Oakland University Head Coach;
5x Summit League Coach of the Year; 4 straight 20-win seasons (2008-2012); 490 career wins, Ranked 22 in wins for active D-I coaches

Oakland University head coach Greg Kampe details his defensive philosophy as he guides you through drills you can use to build and teach close-outs with your team. He makes you think about what and how you want to accomplish strategies in your practices.

Coach Kampe uses on court demonstrators to show you eight different drills you can use that will emphasize how you teach closeouts to your players. Coach uses simple warm-up closeouts to teach team work, communication, and technique. With each drill, he emphasizes how to do the little things right - little things take care of the big things and the big things lead to championships.

After getting your players loose, Coach uses 3v3 drills to not only teach closeouts, but also help side defense and communication as your players are sprinting around the half court, shutting down your opponents ball screen and skip pass action.

Coach Kampe continues his progressive closeout drill routine by using 4v4 closeouts that incorporate the same defensive principles and actions you used in the 3v3 drill, but to make things more game like as you teach your ball screen defense. Coach demonstrates how you can use this drill to teach any kind of screening action: flare, down, stagger, or screen the screener. Kampe leaves no stone unturned as he takes you through the drills they use every day to teach their defensive principles.

He ends his defensive DVD by demonstrating his favorite closeout drill that incorporates aggressive rebounding and competition. Your players will push each other as they look to fight for the right to stay on top of the drill.

Train your players to challenge more shots this year without having any fear of getting blown by on the drive.

Produced at the Fall 2012 Cleveland (OH) clinic.
