Coach Bobby Gonzalez provides instruction and insight for implementing and effectively using the 1-2-2 Contain Press Defense. As a 3/4 court zone trapping press defense, the 1-2-2 Contain Press Defense can be used to create steals and deflections, slow down the offense, and shut down secondary break scoring opportunities. Using markerboard presentation and on-court demonstration, Gonzalez covers setup rules and player responsibilities for traps and 'bumps,' pass coverage rules, primary and secondary trap scenarios, late game scouting situations. He also uses a deflection chart to measure effectiveness. Gonzalez teaches how to force the offense up the sidelines and out of the middle using ball pressure, preventing ball reversal, and strong communication. You can adjust this press defense to best match your opponents' style of play and also transition into a man or zone defense. Use the 1-2-2 Contain Press Defense to control the tempo of a game, minimize opponents' fast breaks, and create more scoring opportunities!
