Coach Tiffany has a great understanding of what it takes to be great on defense - he was a 2-time team captain and starter on defense for three years under Dom Starsia (now niversity of Virginia head coach) at Brown. Good communication between the six defensemen and the goalie are required to create strong team defense. The goalie's only goal is to watch the ball and communicate to the on ball defender. The off ball defenders determine the slides. The 'hot player' designates himself as 'hot' and asks his teammates to fill and second slide. Other verbal calls dictate the slide patterns: crease/crease, crease/adjacent, adjacent/adjacent, and cross crease. Slide scheme development starts with the 1 v 1 decision-making drill and progresses to a full catalog of drills that include 2 v 1, 2 v 2 with an outlet, etc. On the field, Tiffany begins with on ball play. Decision-making is the key part of team scheme development. The first slide, second slide, third slide and recovery are all demonstrated in drills on the field. The DVD finishes with game clips of 6 v 6 defense, demonstrating a variety of slide packages.

Teaching kids defense has always been difficult for me -- as a player it was all about attack, now that I am coaching I see it differently. This dvd was very well designed, and gave me lots of practical things to do with my kids - sometimes playing D is hard for younger kids to embrace as enthusiastically as offense -- This was well worth the money.

Best defensive video I have seen from championship productions. Very thorough. Content is easily implemented. Worth the cost.

Coach Tiffany is very clear and concise when discussing defense. This video is definitely a catalog of drills that you may have seen before but they have some good wrinkles to them. I have been a player/coach for 10 years and I did learn a new and useful slide scheme out of this video. The diagrams and the on-field drills are good examples, but the best part is how he breaks down game film at the end. A must-buy for defensive coaches.
