Unlock Your Team's Defensive Potential This Season
And Lock Down Opponents At-Will

...Decisively transform your team's defense or you get your money back - Guaranteed

...Used with profound success by coaches at EVERY age level

Dear Coach,

Jeff and Joe Haefner here.

As coaches, we've all heard the mantras...

Defense wins championships...

Defense is all about effort...

Defense can save you even on bad shooting nights.

But there's a big difference between knowing you need a great defense and actually turning your players into defensive stoppers who:

  • Create havoc and force bad shots with intense ball pressure
  • Lock down opponents with suffocating help defense
  • Frustrate star players who are used to scoring easily
  • Utilize the proper defensive stance and footwork on every possession
  • Box out instinctively every time a shot goes up
  • Sprint to close out with a purpose

The good news is that ANY team can make a dramatic leap this season simply by focusing on the right defense principles.

Even if your players lack athleticism or are afraid of physicality...

Even if you've tried unsuccessfully to help them embrace a defensive mentality...

And even if you're a new coach and don't know where to begin.

Because getting your team to play great defense really just comes down to teaching it the right way and holding players accountable.

If you've had trouble teaching defense and getting players' full buy-in, then Jim Huber's Man-To-Man Defense program will be one of the biggest turning points in your coaching career...

Something you look back on as a foundational piece of your coaching identity...

Helping you win more games, develop better players AND make a long-term impact on your players' success at higher levels...

"Best DVD I've found on how to build a championship level defense step-by-step."

Matt M from Syracuse, NE says:

Best DVD I've found on how to build a championship level defense step by step. Very thorough presentation with step-by-step instruction throughout. Great explanation on why things are done a certain way - exactly what I was hoping for when I purchased it.

Best overall defensive DVD I have seen and I have a lot!!!

Luke says:

Jim Huber does an excellent job with this DVD. He shows the whole, then breaks it down with drills. This DVD is great for any coach from elementary school to college. It's pressure defense with squared stance ball pressure, players in the gaps, forcing sideline with great help side. This is not a version of the Packline Defense. However he does go over a couple of adjustments to run it as a pack. Best overall defensive DVD I have seen and I have alot!!!

"A cornerstone to my coaching philosophy"

Coach Medose says:
1/3/2019 at 1:25:47 PM

This is a must have for any coach who wants to have a team that plays tough fundamental man to man defense. As a former player and now a coach this video demonstrate the absolute details that have been forgotten or those I just do through building habits as a young player. Coach Huber's style demonstrates how to hold kids accountable and why!! I will use this resource as a cornerstone to my coaching philosophy. I would recommend this to anyone. It can be watched and used at the youth level as well High School Varsity!!

"BEST Coaching DVD I've purchased"

Coach S from Houston Texas from Houston, TX says:
2/4/2018 at 12:23:41 PM

BEST Coaching DVD I've purchased. Does a phenomenal job of breaking down the entire defensive concept. Easy to understand and implement into any program. A must have if you are serious about being a good/great defensive team.

"Finally someone has laid out the step-by-step guide a beginning coach can understand"

Jeffrey Wallin from Ladysmith, WI says:
12/25/2016 at 7:53:41 AM

I am a 5th grade girls coach, and have been coaching the same team since they were in 3rd grade. I have purchased a number of videos, but I wish I would have seen this video before I started coaching this group of girls. Finally, someone has laid out the step by step guide that a beginning coach can understand. Even though it is mid season already, I am going back and teaching these foundation building blocks as seen in the videos. This is a really really really great Shell man to man defense tutorial.

No Matter Where You're Starting Right Now...
This Season Will Be Different

By installing an elite man-to-man defense, you're immediately entering the upper echelon of basketball coaching...

One that will set you and your team apart from the herd and create consistent and noteworthy success.

The common struggles that keep so many teams from reaching their potential disappear when the right defensive system is in place. Things like players:

  • Constantly out of position
  • Giving up straight line drives
  • Failing to contest shots
  • Lacking the necessary intensity and physicality
  • Weak ball pressure that lets the offense dictate the game
  • Refusing to stay down in their stance
  • Hugging their man (and ignoring the help-side)
  • Forgetting to communicate with teammates

More Than Just Effort...
3 Steps to Great Defense

One of the biggest misconceptions we hear from coaches at all levels is defense really just boils down to effort.

The truth is effort will only get you so far.

Great defensive teams do a lot more than try harder (although effort and intensity are essential, too).

In fact, there are 3 steps you need to coach your players on to ensure their effort translates to results.

Success Step #1: Position

All 5 defenders must be in the right position in order to shut off the offense's options.

When they're not, it's usually a "head in hands" situation for the coach...

With opposing players waltzing to the basket, stepping into wide open jump shots and killing you on the glass.

Knowing where to be in all situations is the first step to great defense...

Because if even one player is out of position, your entire defense breaks down.

Your job as a coach is to make sure they always know exactly what position to be in to best prevent scoring opportunities.

Success Step #2 - Technique

Position alone isn't enough to lock down opponents, though.

Players also need the proper technique that allows them to capitalize on good position and stop their man from scoring.

For example...

If a player leaves their defensive stance, the ball handler can easily blow by them on the closeout...even if your player starts in a great defensive position.

If a help-side defender doesn't keep his eye on both the man and the ball, he can quickly lose his man for a layup or open shot.

Technique includes both what TO do (i.e. stay in your stance)...

And what NOT to do (i.e. reach, jump on the contest, lose sight of your man).

Players don't instinctively know the proper technique.

This is 100% on you as a coach to guide them on technique so they can execute at a high level.

Whatever your player's age, size, speed or strength, using the right technique and being in the right position will significantly improve their defensive potential.

Success Step #3: Execution

As you know there's a big difference between "knowing" and "doing".

No matter how much players understand the proper position and technique, their execution ultimately determines their results on the court.

As you've probably seen, some players are resistant to playing hard defense.

Euro-steps and 3s are much more enticing.

Think about it like this...

How many players want to mimic James Harden or Steph Curry on offense? Tons.

Now, how many of your players want to be the next Rudy Gobert (last year's NBA Defensive Player of the Year)? Crickets.

Very few players embrace defense without the right coaching.

With that in mind, execution really boils down to accountability.

Your players will rise to the level you demand
and the level you believe they're capable of.

If you accept poor defensive effort or lack of attention to detail, that's what you'll get from many players.

Which means if you emphasize its importance and hold them accountable, you can help your players reach a new level they didn't think was possible.

The Ripple Effect...

Of course, the end goal of great defense is preventing the other team from scoring.

But the impact of playing great defense permeates just about every other part of your team as well. Here a just a few:

  • Efficient offense. You'll force more turnovers and missed shots so you can get out in transition for easy buckets.
  • Better rebounding. Proper defensive technique and position translates to great rebounding position and fewer second shots allowed.
  • Stronger team unity. All players totally align with each other towards one common goal.
  • Weaken opponent's defense. When your opponents get shut down on offense, they often disengage on defense leading to break downs and easy baskets.
  • Player development. Develop their coordination, athleticism and foot speed as they meet varying defensive challenges.
  • Win even when you're shooting poorly. Your offense won't be there every night, but you can always count on your defense.
  • More players contribute. Get meaningful contributions from players who aren't necessarily offensive threats.
  • Better zone defense. Every great zone depends on man-to-man principles so you'll automatically increase defensive versatility.

Pillars of an Air-Tight Defense
(from Youth to College)

There are 5 things coaches at all levels need to be able to teach on the defensive side of the ball...

  • On-ball defense
  • Closeouts
  • Blocking out and Rebounding
  • Help Defense
  • Transition Defense

As you move to higher levels with more skilled players, you'll need to incorporate additional components to counteract the better skill.

  • Hustle plays
  • Defending the post
  • Defending down and back screens
  • Defending Ball Screens and Handoffs
  • Defending Cross Screens
  • Defending Inbounds Plays
  • Free Throw Rebounding

Your ability to properly teach these components and get players' buy-in is one of the surest predictors of your team's record this season.

Why We Start Players Young

While zone defense is common in many youth leagues, it's widely acknowledged that all youth players will benefit from learning the principles of man-to-man defense...

Develop athleticism and versatility.

  • Players need to move around the entire floor to guard their man, rather than limiting themselves to one "zone"
  • They learn to defend on the perimeter and down low
  • Repetition builds coordination, foot speed, and athleticism as their bodies develop

Build Higher IQ players..

  • Players are constantly navigating the entire floor and reading the full spectrum of offensive circumstances
  • Promotes the fundamental concept of "team defense" (an absolute necessity at higher levels of play)

Play better zone.

If your players understand and buy into man-to-man defense principles, they will be significantly better when you do decide to run zone.

We believe it's every youth coach's responsibility to instill a passion for and understanding of defense in their players.

If we were starting our coaching careers over...

Now that you have a primer on man-to-man defense, we'd like to introduce you to Coach Jim Huber, creator of Huber's Man-To-Man Defense.

If we were starting our coaching careers over and could only get direction from one person on building an airtight team defense...

It would be Coach Huber.

Coach Huber is widely recognized as one of the premier man-to-man defense coaches in the country.

He's been coaching for over 20 years at the youth, high school and college levels, currently leading Mokan Basketball, a direct Nike sponsor program.

You can count on at least three things from every Jim Huber team:

  • They play HARD
  • They defend SMART
  • They WIN GAMES

Among his coach highlights in the Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL):

  • 45 Championships at regional and national tournaments since 2004
  • #1 Team Defense at 2013 Nike EYBL (league consisted of top 40 Nike high school teams in North America)
  • 1st place finish at 2013 Nike Global Challenge
  • Nike Elite 100 Camp Coach (camp for top 100 high school players)
  • 22 former players have gone on to play D-I college

Coach Huber has been teaching championship-level defense for years...

He doesn't just know the theory, he understands HOW to get players to buy in with passion and purpose.

If you'd like to revolutionize your team's defense, then I'd like to invite you to join his best-in-class training program.

"This DVD is my #1 video for teaching defense."

Coach Chad from Albuquerque, NM says:
10/15/2017 at 10:13:51 PM

I have been coaching for 10 years and am starting to build a pretty good DVD library. This DVD is my #1 video for teaching defense. Jim Huber does a fantastic job building the defense with a step by step process, which makes this video superior to all others I have seen. This video has helped my coaching background and philosophy immensely. I run the "man in the hole" drill every time we practice.

Thanks Jim! 5 stars (would give more if I could :o)

"Excellent job explaining not only how to coach defense, but how to coach"

G Harter from Concord, VA says:
11/30/2016 at 7:50:02 PM

This is really all you need to develop a reasonable man to man defense for youth basketball. The four CDs are full of information and drills that can be used for many age levels. I also like the way he breaks the man to man down into much easier and understandable steps and is consistent throughout the DVD. I have purchased other man to man DVDs from other sources and this is by far the best and most applicable to youth basketball. I would recommend this.

We Know This Program Works, Even For...

New coaches:

  • Establish your defensive identity
  • Start with a step-by-step system you can build from the ground up
  • Develop your broader coaching and leadership skills at the same time you improve your defense

Veteran coaches:

  • Even the most polished coaches will pull at least a handful of significant strategies for improving your team and individual defensive performance
  • Simply getting just a little more from your players (5% more) makes a big impact on your success this season. Games are often won by small margins. Forcing 2 more turnovers, for example, could be the difference in winning or losing a game. Coach Huber is one of the best at showing coaches how to get the most from players and squeeze out that extra 5%.

Teams Lacking Athleticism:

  • Fundamental team defense is even more essential if your team lacks the athleticism to make up for poor position and technique

Teams Lacking Grit or Physicality:

  • These traits can be coached by giving players guidelines on how to make the offensive player feel them
  • And remember, you don't need to be a bruiser to play great defense

Teams That Play Zone:

(Note: We believe all youth coaches should only play man to man defense until age 14.)

  • Players who understand and implement strong man-to-man defensive principles become more dangerous in every type of defensive look, including zone
  • You'll develop their athleticism and versatility and give your team more options on defense

Coaches Short on Practice Time:

  • If time is short, go through the first 5 lessons only (Getting players onboard, on-ball defense, close outs, blocking out and rebounding and help-side defense)
  • Your defense will dramatically and rapidly improve just from those lessons
  • Implement the more advanced lessons as needed or when you have additional practice time

Youth Team Coaches:

  • Develop players' athleticism and versatility by challenging them to play man-to-man
  • Create Higher IQ players who understand how to read the offense and play in all areas of the floor
  • Set players up to be elite zone defender at higher levels (even Jim Boeheim of Syracuse teaches man-to-man defense principles first)

No matter your circumstances, Coach Huber's program will serve as a cornerstone of your coaching philosophy for years to come.

As you can see, it certainly has for other coaches at all age and experience levels...

This DVD and ebook is awesome! As a new coach working with youth basketball, I wanted something that I could use from the ground up.

The DVD keeps your attention and the ebook helps to reinforce the concepts. Worth every penny.

An outstanding comprehensive presentation of man to man defense. Usable at any level for inexperienced and experienced coaches alike. Only negative is the "on and off the line" terminology. Easily misinterpreted. Why not use the more common phrase "on and up the line." This video series is an excellence purchase for any coach or basketball program.

However, I can't find the link to the e-book which was promised and I've written an email asking for it with no reply. If you fix that situation, I can write another review.

Being a first year coach and having to learn a great deal about basketball myself, let alone teach my athletes, I've found these series of DVD's a great resource. Insights that will help me ramp up what I teach my athletes. I have a long way to go, but will rely on this set of DVD's to help me springboard into a successful year. Thank you.

Coach Huber illustrates how to build your man to man defense by incorporating drills and principles that develop the individual player as well as your team. Players can't 'hide' with these drills! I have incorporated some of his buildup drills into my practice plans for the 6th graders I am coaching. I don't believe in playing a lot of zone, at this age, and I need to get the kids to buy into defense and rebounding. I appreciate that Coach Huber was cognizant of the plight of youth coaches in teaching defense. Very helpful!

This is a helpful product on breaking down defense. I have gotten a lot of information on how to break down each part of defense for athletes and believe it will be very helpful to them.

Watching Jim communicate with his players and require them to follow directions or pay the consequences was most helpful.

This is really all you need to develop a reasonable man to man defense for youth basketball. The four CDs are full of information and drills that can be used for many age levels. I also like the way he breaks the man to man down into much easier and understandable steps and is consistent throughout the DVD. I have purchased other man to man DVDs from other sources and this is by far the best and most applicable to youth basketball. I would recommend this.

I have been coaching for 10 years and am starting to build a pretty good DVD library. This DVD is my #1 video for teaching defense. Jim Huber does a fantastic job building the defense with a step by step process, which makes this video superior to all others I have seen. This video has helped my coaching background and philosophy immensely. I run the "man in the hole" drill every time we practice.

Thanks Jim! 5 stars (would give more if I could :o)

I met Jim Huber in the summer of 2016 at an Elite Guard camp at St. Luis university that my son Kevin Hogue attended. I was impressed with his knowledge and wisdom of the game. He teaches the game well and is very motivating and inspirational to the players. He earned credibility by me from watching him teach, which in turn led me to buy his DVD on defense. His DVD did not disappoint. I was very happy with it and have already been able to incorporate many drills and concepts with the current I am coaching.

Keep up the good work Jim!

Jim Huber does an excellent job with this DVD. He shows the whole, then breaks it down with drills. This DVD is great for any coach from elementary school to college. It's pressure defense with squared stance ball pressure, players in the gaps, forcing sideline with great help side. This is not a version of the Packline Defense. However he does go over a couple of adjustments to run it as a pack. Best overall defensive DVD I have seen and I have alot!!!

This is a must have for any coach who wants to have a team that plays tough fundamental man to man defense. As a former player and now a coach this video demonstrate the absolute details that have been forgotten or those I just do through building habits as a young player. Coach Huber's style demonstrates how to hold kids accountable and why!! I will use this resource as a cornerstone to my coaching philosophy. I would recommend this to anyone. It can be watched and used at the youth level as well High School Varsity!!

Fantastic DVD. I am excited to use the building blocks presented here to take our HS girls to the next level and really shut opponents down. I like how Coach Huber starts from the ground up, presenting easy to run drills, while also showing what accountability looks like throughout the teaching series. Great DVD!
