Allow Chantal Vallée to show you exactly how she led the University of Windsor to five straight Canadian national titles! This inside look into a training camp setting run by Coach Vallée will give you an unparalleled chance to learn her defensive system. You'll see how to squeeze the space your opponent can utilize while preventing the drive with the pack line defense. Vallée also details her "Sparta" man-to-man style that prioritizes eliminating the opportunity for 3-point shots.
Coach Vallée provides an in-depth explanation for both of her defenses through detailed lecture and diagrams as well as on-court walk through with her players. You will learn how to warm up your players with a 1-on-1 closeout drill series that teaches athletes to adjust their coverage based on whether they are trying to contain the drive or prevent the perimeter shot.
The Pack defense places a huge emphasis on forcing players to their weak hand and providing help support on dribble penetration. See how Vallée builds this strategy from 2-on-2 breakdown drills to full 5-on-5 play. These drills will teach your players proper defensive positioning to force the ball toward the weak side of the floor. You'll also learn how to rotate defenders on baseline drives with a two or three-player switch. Coach Vallée explains how rotations adjust based on the position of the post defender.
The Sparta defense changes the focus to preventing 3-point shots. With this strategy, less help is provided by defenders as they deny their match-ups. Coach Vallée explains how the on-ball defender takes responsibility for forcing their match-up into a low percentage shot through proper close outs, creating a cushion on the drive, and challenging the shot with the "Ghosting" technique.
If you love playing man-to-man defense, this system taught by Coach Vallée will provide unique tactics that you can easily begin using with your own team.
