Coach Bill Tierney has led Princeton to six NCAA men's lacrosse championship titles in his 16 years as head coach. Now he shares his insights to adjusting your defense to an ever-changing offense. After winning a national title, Princeton went on to lead the nation in scoring defense, scoring margin, and winning percentage in 2002. Coach Tierney explains how to create dozens of different defenses by choosing any one of the five outer-circle theories, combining it with any inner-circle plan of action and adjusting individual responsibilities. He gives an extensive marker board presentation with pressure-filled defensive schemes designed to confuse opposing offenses. The advantages of Tierney's system is it takes away the center of the field, does not allow for easy shots, and focuses on containment of the ball and the offensive players. All of these concepts, and the drills used to teach them, combine to develop a strong, cohesive team defense at any level.
