with Dave Vander Meulen,
former University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Head Coach;
2x NABC Division III Coach of the Year;
career .707 winning percentage

Dave Vander Meulen spent 23 years as the head coach at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater before retiring in 2001. During that time, he collected 440 victories with a .707 winning percentage and to this day remains the all-time wins leader in UW-Whitewater history.

This video from Vander Meuelen, a two-time NABC Coach of the Year, covers many of the best post play training techniques that he employed during his long career. You'll get drills and skills for teaching post play on both sides of the ball and coaching insights along the way that make everything easier to understand - for both you and the players you'll be instructing too.

Body Control

To play in the post effectively on offense, a player must know how to use their body as a weapon. By understanding body control and how the defensive player is attempting to defend you, you can use your body to open up scoring lanes. Coach Vander Meulen details how players should stay wide to create position and open up space to operate. By realizing where the defender is located relative to the ball, the offensive post player can generate passing and scoring lanes.


Every great post player has one or more counters to their most effective scoring moves. Over time, opposing teams will learn to cut off tendencies or make adjustments to post players and how they score. If a player is effective scoring baseline, that player must have a counter move when baseline is taken away.

Vander Meulen covers drop step baseline, up and under, face up, and hook shot moves. He shows exactly what to do to counter and score when a defender plays on the top or bottom side.

Straddle the Leg

Straddling the leg as a post defender allows the athlete to "half" the offensive player's body. This helps the defender cover the top and bottom side at the same time and ensures the defender won't get sealed. Coach Vander Meulen displays how to "half" by straddling a leg and using your body to move with the offensive player. By doing so, you can take away passing lanes and make it much harder for the opponent to catch an entry pass.

Coach Vander Meulen covers many of the basics of post play in one convenient package. You can use the instructions in this video to help your players score more easily by using counter moves to get good shots. Defensively, your athletes will learn about body control and the importance of being physical. Get better today!
