Stop reacting to your opponent's offense! Learn an up-tempo defense that will enable you to dictate to the offense, put your opponent under pressure and generate transition opportunities for your team.

Using a mixture of classroom presentations and on-field demonstrations, Gene Peluso outlines the basic rules and principles for his "30 Second Defense." Using easy to understand slide presentations and diagrams, Coach Peluso presents a variety of different defensive ideas and game scenarios. He then takes you to the practice field to demonstrate a wide variety of drills that will help your defense dictate to the offense, rather than simply reacting to it.

With both settled and unsettled drills--ranging from 1-on-1 to half and full field--Peluso shows how to take advantage of the special situations defenses face on the field. He includes clear explanations and on-field drills demonstrating:

  • Full field 5-v-4 with the emphasis on aggressive defense and moving the ball.
  • A variety of unsettled situations to ensure your players can improvise and react to what's in front of them.
  • 4-v-4 Pressure Drill showing the fundamentals of off-ball play while putting maximum pressure on the ball carrier.
  • 1-v-1 with Slider teaching your players how to play on-ball, as well as how to time slides.
  • 2-v-2 Alley Drill with an emphasis on clearing and riding under pressure.
  • Points System - This valuable technique will reward your players for executing the fundamentals correctly and implementing the defensive philosophy with the added benefit of ensuring practices are competitive and intense.
The video is aimed at coaches working with more advanced players but would help anyone looking to instill an aggressive defensive philosophy with strong fundamentals and a team ethos.

This is an aggressive defense that will dictate the pace of the game, provide your offense with more scoring opportunities and putting your team in a position to win.
