The old sports adage "Defense wins championships" has been repeatedly proven by DeMatha Catholic High School. The basketball program is built on a strong defense that over recent years has produced dozens of championship teams in the highly competitive Washington D.C. area.

In this exclusive video course, longtime DeMatha head basketball coach Mike Jones shares the strategies that have made his school a defensive powerhouse. He begins by emphasizing proper defensive rotation to minimize middle penetration. Jones focuses on ball pressure as a way to challenge shooters and not have to worry about getting beat off the first dribble.

He shares several critical principles for developing a strong defense such as:

  • Beating the offense to the middle of the floor
  • Keeping the ball on one side of the court
  • Moving on the pass
  • Communicating non-stop with teammates

To help perfect defensive rotations, Jones offers a series of 10 drills to create and sustain effective defensive play. He reinforces basic techniques with advanced strategies like the "Perfect Slide," 1-on-1 full-court slides and closeout drills. He also teaches the "Wildcat Series" for staying low on defense and closing out strong.

A detailed explanation of the DeMatha Shell Drill is also presented, covering every aspect of proper defense rotation. In the 5-man shell drill, Coach Jones explains the proper techniques for covering the high and low post, denial defense, covering cutters and communicating on weakside help.

Order this video today to implement Mike Jones' concept into your program. Learn how to dominate the defensive end with perfect rotations used by one of the nation's most celebrated high school basketball programs.
