Every coach has struggled with which defense to use at some point in their careers. Which defense covers tips the best? What if my setter is not very fast? Whose ball is it anyway?
In this video, 2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach Anne Kordes answers these questions while teaching you the pros and cons of three most common defensive systems. You will see how you can customize each system to the needs of your team - or even the needs of an individual match - so you can have your best passers and hitters in each rotation.
When deciding which defensive system to employ, knowing your team is just as essential as knowing your opponent. Coach Kordes takes local 7th and 8th graders through a "rotation-by-rotation" explanation of the strengths of each system, when to use it, and how to teach it.
Kordes gives coaches of all levels the keys to teaching each defense, the keys to transition to offense, and then back again. With four simple cue words, training each defense is made simple:
No matter the level of your team, knowing how they best move on the court is important to determining which defensive system will be most successful for them.

This is a very solid and clear video that does a nice job of laying out the basics for a beginning coach. Kordes is direct and concise in her instruction providing a foundation for understanding these defensive schemes. The base, read, stage cover section is extremely useful in getting your players into the correct position to execute. I think I would have given this a five if it used different colored uniforms to designate certain players or had used animated overlays to clarify several sections. A good value for those just starting out.
