Faced with the daunting task of being a small school with a large school schedule, the 4-1 zone defense was born. This defense is an innovative equalizer when facing disadvantages in size, athleticism and depth. Coach Ricks credits his program's turnaround solely to this disruptive zone. Ricks' defensive package is based on 12 principles that produce confusion and disruption. From these principles Ricks demonstrates more than 10 different strategies that can be thrown at an offense to disrupt its flow. A major strength of this defense is the weak side support it provides. This zone will fluster your opponents as their offensive adjustments play into the hands of this intense, all-out defense. On floor instruction and game footage add clarity to this superior presentation. Your program will compete with bigger, stronger and better teams by creating confusion in their game.
