Here is something that will INSTANTLY give you an edge over your opponents when developing your defense. We are really excited to introduce this to you as it could be a game-changer for your season.
The way that NBA Player Development Coach and 25-year Collegiate Coach Don Kelbick teaches his defensive system is extremely unique and it could be extremely beneficial for you.
You'll see in the video clips below that the way Don teaches differs from most coaches in a few big ways.
- You don't need offensive players.
- You don't need a basketball.
- You don't need assistants - especially helpful for youth coaches.
- You can apply this to ANY defense since these defensive principles are universal.
- You can save practice time teaching the defense.
Use during the preseason too! You can also classify these as "conditioning" drills since a ball is not needed and get your defense installed before the season even starts.
Can you imagine walking into the first day of practice already having your team on the same page defensively? This will make you competitive from day 1.
Watch the following 3 short video clips:
When Don builds his defense, there are over 20 drill progressions that flow seamlessly together and improve retention based on prior progressions. In the video clips below, you will see a couple of progressions of how Don builds his defense.
Video 1 - Explanation
Don explains why he uses his teaching method.
Video 2 - Stance and Perimeter Pass Progression

Video 3 - Final Off-Ball Drill Defense Progression
