Description

with Keith Coleman, AIB College of Business Women's Head Coach;
former head coach of the AAU Lady Cardinals out of Kingwood 2005 AAU National Champion, former Northeast Christian Academy (TX) head girls' basketball coach, back-to-back 2A Texas (TAPPS) State Tournament appearances; retired United States Marine Corps Major; 16-0 record vs international competition coaching the men's team on the USS Harlan County

The WAVA System has been developed by Keith Coleman a retired US Marine Corps Major, so it should come as no surprise that this is a system of discipline, developing mental toughness, flexibility and control.

WAVA is an acronym for Waging an Aggressive and Vigorous Attack and has military language in its philosophy and terminology. It is a continuity offense, like a modified flex, that can be run on either side of the floor and continue the pattern and can be run through many times again. This system, combined with the five other sets, can counter attack any defense the opposition may apply.

Coach Coleman will teach you how to utilize your entire roster and keep your team fresh throughout the entire game by playing each player or unit a set amount of time. He diagrams and demonstrates how to use different basketball abilities to change the pace of the game and keep your opponent from getting comfortable on the defensive end.

Coach Coleman will outline numerous drills you can incorporate into practice that help you players develop good hand-eye coordination while keeping your eyes on the target and your chin to the rim. These drills are great for any coach looking to teach their players how to master the fundamentals of the game of basketball.

Disc 1
Coach Coleman's offensive system is set up to help your team become successful at the middle school, high school, or collegiate level. This offense will control tempo, utilize the post, and allow you to look for quick three-point shots to put your opponent away. The basic continuity is called Three, which places the point guard, wing and post on one side. In this discussion is included specifics on post screening and pivoting, guard pivoting, positioning, coming off screens and finding a shot.

There are five sets you can use as an entry into the offense to take advantage of different match ups or defensive sets. Each set has a military name that is representative of its alignment and Coleman provides a color-coded way to disguise the sets. This system is a complete continuity offense that, when combined with the five other sets, can counter attack any defense the opposition may apply.

Disc 2
This disk includes defense strategy and "playing teams within the team." On defense he wants to "disrupt the opponents offensive supply line" and on offense he has a number of "teams" within his team that allows for easy substitutions and an ability to quickly change to different styles of play to attack the other team in specific ways.

Coleman's defense is all about stressing the offense, but not pressing it. He wants to take the opponent's point guard out of their ball handling duties and make other players who are less adept take on those responsibilities. He does this by using the "cover back" to stop the fast break of the other team and teaches the "floating back" technique. The beauty of this technique is that a press break really doesn't work on it because it's not truly a press.

Coleman explains how they trap and how they defend screens, and he describes techniques they use to get teams to burn more of the shot clock to give the offense less time to score. You'll see two defensive calls:

  • Gold - Takes advantage of the offense's weakest player whenever they have the ball.
  • Flash - Appears to be a man-to-man, but is really a zone defense.

The teams within the team are an inspired bit of coaching. Coach Coleman points out three examples of teams he uses:

  • Air Team - Consists of long range shooters.
  • Ground Team - The ground team includes bangers; inside players.
  • Fast Attack Team - Includes drivers who can create their own shots.

This gives the players a role and an identity on the specific teams and the larger team as a whole and educes the need to mange the players during a game, allowing you to focus on other aspects besides substitutions.

The WAVA System has many clever strategies and techniques that can help a team attack in game situations over and over, like ocean waves crashing on the shore and slowly wearing it, like your opponents, down.

In an era of strength and speed in athletics I find it funny how so many “experts” on basketball can NOT see what Coach Coleman has done with this video. He has given all of us a look into the future of basketball. I know there are some people that say this cannot work, but I beg to differ. In order to really grasp the depth of this video one must look back at the history of sports, so let’s take professional football for example. The two minute offense, no-huddle offense and the hurry-up offense, all were thought of as something that was never going to work in its inception. Everyone said it is just a fad, it will not last or catch on…well we all know that is NOT what happened. It did catch on to the point where every NFL team has a two minute, no-huddle, hurry-up offense. Why, because it disrupts the defensive strategies and flexibility. Don’t like football let’s look at basketball… run and shoot offense. Another idea that was thought could never work. Why you ask, because it was thought to be a “street ball” basketball tactic. The mindset was that inter-city basketball was never going to work at the professional level. Wrong again. Every professional and college team has a fast break, run and shoot offense. Coach Coleman has helped the speed of the game with his “WAVA” system.. Think about it, speed is what fans want. Teams that learn to run this type of offense will have more people coming to see their teams than those not running the “WAVA” system. Heck as a society we want things now, we want instant everything. So why would we(the fans) not want our sports to be faster and more entertaining? Also as we know, not every player will play in the NBA or WNBA. But they will play at some lower level. The problem coaches face is everyone wants to play, but it is hard to win that way. Parents get upset when they come and their child does not get into the game. There is also the other side of the coin where you have the parent who has a more advance child and is upset because the coach is playing some less talented players and the team loses. Coach Coleman’s “WAVA” system gives a coach a way to make both parents happy. A chance to play everyone and an opportunity to win, and win often. If you do not buy this video then you as a coach have just shot yourself in the foot. OUCH! So the “WAVA” System of Coach Coleman is the future of basketball. Looking at all things fairly…YES! Honestly, it will not be used in its entirety but smart coaches’ will take bits and pieces of it and adapted it to their programs in the future. Those that don't will be getting blow out of the gyms and possibly be the coaches losing their jobs because they are not willing to change. So for those not seeing the future of basketball I say open your eyes. It is the” WAVA”. Good job Coach Coleman can’t wait to buy your next DVD.

I was bored watching this video listening to the honorable Coach Coleman talk, talk, talk, talk, and TALK while his team sat there. His heartfelt military analogies were far too lengthy, flaky and useless for me but his players knew what to do. Give coach credit for sincerely trying his best to share with the viewer a complete description to a very basic whole group approach for girls. It seems the real secret to his teams’ success is DISCIPLINE, a KISS approach, HUSTLE and bench strength. This DVD needs more action, more drills, more details, more sophistication, a lot more editing and a lot less talk. It fails to include actual game footage. WAVA IS NOT an advanced strategic silver bullet solution to your coaching challenges. This DVD is proof that it’s not what you do, it’s how well (energetically) you do it. A passionate Coach Coleman has all his players on the same page giving their best effort. Now that IS good coaching worthy of emulation. My recommendation for those seeking a detailed basketball system to copy is to type in the keyword “system” in the search box and names like Jerry Petitgoue, Bob Hurley, Don Showalter, Sherri Coale, Morgan Wooten, Don Meyer, Roy Williams, Dick Bennett, Tubby Smith, Bob Huggins, Tara Vanderveer, Fran Fraschilla, Dana Altman, etc. etc. will educate you on the proper technical aspects of basketball. If you can only afford to buy one video, get Swen Nater's DVD on the UCLA system.

Great video. Coach Coleman does a great job explaining his system. The offensive video was much better than the defensive one because not many people use the rotation he explains.

The WAVA System was a great video. Not sure who provided the first review but most coaches know that you do not lock the thumbs. They are overlapped. Unlike this reviewer, I actually purchased the video and found it very informative. I would suggest that a different clip of the video be used for promotional purposes. The clips do not highlight the great information to be obtained from the video. Both middle school and high school coaches can gain advantage from the material in this video. Kudos to Coach Coleman.

This is one of the worst clips I have have ever watched on this site. First, do yuo really want players locking their thumbs together to reduce turnover? Lock your thumbs together right now and fel how awkward it is. That is a bad technique and what I call "overcoaching". Second, I don't know if even one girl galnced at the rim while the ball was in flight "maximize eyes". That is anotehr bad technique. Do we really want players glancing at the rim then the ball in is flight and few feet from them? No, absolutely not going to work for a a variety of reasons Speed of pass; type of pass; where is defender?;, etc... I ahve bought quite a few items from Championship but I question why you need to make a video of every new "system". Based on what i saw in the clips I would never purchase htis video.

This is one of the newest systems for basketball. I can't believe how thorough it is. Coach Coleman makes you feel he is talking to you in a coaching clinic. I ran it with my high school team on Friday night and we won by 10. The kids love thinking they are in the military. Let me know if he has any other DVDs come out.
