Scorpion SWARM Attack 2-3 Zone Defense

with Wayne Walters, inventor of the SWARM Defense,
former Head Coach at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
His junior college team forced more than 30 turnovers per game in the last four years of his coaching career.

If you like switching defenses and stunting opponents' strategy, this is the presentation for you.

Wayne Walters is a master of the match-up zone and switching defenses. This presentation covers all aspects of his aggressive, half-court 2-3 zone defensive package that has more variations than an opposing offense can handle.

You will learn the basic SWARM defensive alignment along with nine different coverages ("stunts") that change the rotational patterns and the "when," "where" and "from whom" the trap will occur. Since each coverage has different rotational patterns, you can keep your opponent guessing as to which player or which passing lane will be left open.

The "Scorpion" is a 2-3 match-up zone that can instantly transform into a man-to-man defense or a 1-3-1 zone. The 2-3 zone formation is used to lure opponents into initiating their usual zone offense against a 2-3. Once they commit, the defensive formation essentially changes into a match-up zone. Stealth, Razor and Laser are used to describe the coverages, rotations and roles of both the guards at the top of the zone as well as the two low block defenders.

Once the foundation is established, there are several ways to put pressure on your opponent. Your team can show an aggressive 2-3 zone that traps the point guard at the top of the key forcing him/her to give up the ball. Coach Walters gives you different ways to "stunt" to this pass out of the trap and to stunt the next pass or drive.

The offense never gets comfortable as each stunt involves a different rotational pattern leaving the right wing, left wing, or the high post open after the initial trap. Each package also demonstrates how to rotate out of the center-court trap and includes what to do once the pass is entered to the wing or the corner, and how to handle a baseline drive.

If a trap on the wing is preferred (or when the opponent does not have a scoring point guard), Thunder, Gamble and Bullet can be used to force the offense into a turnover. Each play tricks the offense into believing that a certain passing lane is open, only to be immediately closed off by the specific stunt related to the coverage being run.

Lastly, all of the pieces are put together to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Scorpion 2-3 zone. Based on calls from the sideline or the floor leader or based on a predetermined number of passes, the team can run a number of quick stunts to disrupt the offensive flow and strategy to your advantage.

The Scorpion 2-3 zone will give your opponents nightmares because it's impossible to prepare for. You have so many simple yet highly effective stunts in your arsenal that opposing players cannot help but improvise for a shot.

Explaining innovative ideas to players and coaches can be extremely challenging. Coach Walters has a unique way of making the complex simple by giving clear instruction and giving a visual "home" base. He applies that concept on both sides of the ball and creates what he calls "simple multiplicity". In other words, looks complicated to opponents but crystal clear to your team. SWARM concepts can be integrated at the speed and level of your players basketball IQ regardless of base defense or level of pressure. Coach Walters' teams typically over achieve on defense forcing a high number of turnovers with only half court defense. High school and college coaches that have adopted some version of his system have experienced similar results.

SWARM Match Up Zone Defensive Concepts

with Wayne Walters, inventor of the SWARM Defense,
former Head Coach at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
His junior college team forced more than 30 turnovers per game in the last four years of his coaching career.

One of the toughest defenses to face is the match-up zone defense. The creator of the SWARM defense, Wayne Walters, shares the foundation of his match-up zone defense and teaches you how to implement it into your arsenal using various setups and according to the level of aggressiveness you prefer.

Starting with breakdown concepts for a 1-2-2 and 1-3-1 zone, Coach Walters shares the necessary components for creating an overpowering match up zone defense. He explains the fundamental responsibilities for each position. Based on your personal preference, you can choose to match-UP or match-DOWN to the ball to limit you opponent's offense to specific spots on the court.

Once these fundamentals are established, Walters adds another very effective layer: the triangle-and-two concept. This is a simple-to-teach concept with a big pay-off. It also confuses the offense because there just aren't any gaps in the paint to pass to. You'll learn how to execute the triangle-and-two concept against both an odd and even front.

Most coaches will try to attack your match-up zone with dribble penetration and kick-out to shooters. In this segment, you'll learn how to stop dribble penetration from different spots (top, wing, corner) with efficient rotations. The Fist and Twist approaches will keep the ball on the perimeter without leaving shooters open.

Included in the presentation are two build-up drills: the Bee Drill and Chair Drill. Coach Walters has used these drills to successfully teach rotations and movements within a match-up zone. The Chair Drill teaches players how to stay low defensively. Your players get a great workout while learning how to move within the zone.

The Bee Drill helps to teach the basic concepts of staying within a triangle. As offensive players cut through the zone, defenders learn where to pick them up and how to bump them to another defender. Starting with 3v3, Coach Walters builds to 4v4 and into the complete 5v5 match-up.

Boxing out can be a tough task when playing a zone defense. How are you supposed to box out when you are also fronting the post? Coach Walters shows you how to solve these problems and turn a weakness into a strength.

This on-court presentation covers all of the elements you'll need for a greater understanding of this defensive strategy. Whether it's an odd front, even front, baseline drive, wing drive, or dribble entry, Coach Walters covers every possible situation along with options you can use to create the complete defensive package.

Explaining innovative ideas to players and coaches can be extremely challenging. Coach Walters has a unique way of making the complex simple by giving clear instruction and giving a visual "home" base. He applies that concept on both sides of the ball and creates what he calls "simple multiplicity". In other words, looks complicated to opponents but crystal clear to your team.

Junk SWARM Defense

with Wayne Walters, inventor of the SWARM Defense,
former Head Coach at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
His junior college team forced more than 30 turnovers per game in the last four years of his coaching career.

Junk defenses are unexpected and teams are rarely prepared for them. Wayne Walters, the inventor of the SWARM defense, takes the floor to demonstrate an innovative defense for coaches with a limited talent pool that will create havoc for opposing teams.

Coach Walters focuses on the three primary junk defenses out of his "Scorpion" 2-3 zone that will allow you to maximize the skills of your role players, while taking the opposing team out of their regular offensive sets by denying their main scoring threat(s).

You will learn effective strategies for the Box-and-1, Triangle-and-2, the Tandem-and-3-Chasers and more.

Walters begins with the Bee Drill that teaches players how to defend cutters into the paint. This drill is used in the Triangle-and-2, as well as the Box-and-1. In a progressive manner, Walters shows how to stop individual cutters, multiple cutters, and two cutters and dribble penetration.

Coach Walters has an arsenal of different junk defenses that are easily taught without spending too much practice time on them, especially if your team is accustomed to his SWARM attack defense.

He breaks down the positional responsibilities for each player within each defense and includes situational drills. Coach Walters also shows how to double team out of these defenses.

The defenses demonstrated on the court are:

  • Box and 1
  • Triangle and 2
  • Top stinger/bottom stinger
  • Diamond and 1
  • Twist

If you're looking to add effective junk defenses to your coaching toolbox, let Coach Walters show you how with his unique variations. With the tricks you'll learn from this presentation, you'll be able to disrupt your opponent's last-second play or haunt them all night long.
