with Jim Calhoun;
3x National Championship Coach; Member of Naismith Hall of Fame,

A championship team must have a good defense to contain their opponents.

In this video, see how Jim Calhoun's four basic defensive principles can help you build a championship defense. Using on court demonstration, Coach Calhoun takes you through his defensive philosophies and a variety of drills that will disrupt any offense from running smoothly. These drills have enabled his teams to consistently rank among the top defensive teams in the country.

Calhoun then takes you through his principles for how to run an effective zone offense. Learn how he uses a variety of player movements to attack odd and even front zone defenses. Concepts covered include drag dribbles, shooting drill work, and odd front zone offense concepts. These offensive sets will allow you to dictate your offensive match-ups even against zones.

In addition to the on court demonstrations, Calhoun takes you through the coaching philosophies that have aided him in becoming one of the nation's premiere coaches. The "culture you create" is the key to developing your program and developing practice and tactical plans that reflect not only the personnel of your team, but the values that you have as a coach.

Using examples of current and past players Calhoun explains how he instils the motto "better your best" to his players and the steps that he uses to aid them in that process.

This video is an invaluable resource for coaches at the junior varsity, varsity, college or university level.
