Whether you run a man to man or zone The Backer Zone Defense will be a valuable addition to your defensive arsenal.
In this detailed lacrosse DVD, Scott Tucker goes into great detail in explaining the principles of his highly successful Backer Zone defense. Using whiteboard and on field demonstrations he explains how this high pressure defense can help your team in both man up and man down situations.
This high pressure defense stops the dodging or isolation offense so popular today. It allows your players to take risks knowing they have the security of a backer in place. This enables your team to force the offense out of its comfort zone and to change their game plan to deal with your defense instead of vice versa.
Coach Tucker starts by describing the rationale behind this defense and discusses the type of players you should look for to implement the Backer Zone to its full potential. In his whiteboard presentation, Tucker's attention to detail is evident. He goes into each player's responsibilities as on-ball defenders and the proper positioning of off-ball defenders. He also discusses how to deal with offensive players in different positions on the field.
Moving to the field, Tucker continues to illustrate key points in the Backer Zone. This will allow you to see how the defense is actually run during live exercises. He points out where players should be depending on the ball movement of the offense.
This defense will be a great addition to any team's arsenal and is a must for any coach looking to gain an advantage on the defensive side of the field.
