with Chris Jans,
New Mexico State University Head Coach;
WAC Coach of the Year 2018 & 2019; 2018 & 2019 WAC regular season and tournament champions;
long-time, successful JUCO coach with several NJCAA Tournament appearances, including the 1998 NJCAA National Championship (Kirkwood)

New Mexico State's Chris Jans presents seven different practice drills that you can easily implement into your practice routine. These are drills that Jans uses daily to improve his players' fundamentals, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.

Closeouts and Defense

Coach Jans introduces two simple, yet detailed closeout drills to begin practice. His unique take on closeouts can be implemented at any level. The skills covered in these drills must be mastered by any athlete who wants to become a quality defensive player. Each exercise has progressions that allow players to run through a high volume of quality closeouts in a variety of situations.

After a highly efficient passing drill, Jans teaches his "2v2 Skinny" drill, which is one of his favorite exercises for working on defensive skills. This drill will help players learn to communicate with each other on defense and teaches them a valuable technique in guarding down screens.


Coach Jans concludes with three different advantage/disadvantage drills in both full court and half court settings. All three drills are highly competitive and force players to talk a lot in order to get stops on defense, while also training how to score quickly and efficiently on offense.

If your practices have become mundane and routine, this is a great video to help show a different take on some popular drills, as well as some unique drills that can be used at intermediate levels and higher. Coach Jans' attention to detail is a great example for all coaches.
