In this long awaited video, Mick Haley shares the defensive system that his team's success has centered around. He describes his system as "a system that breathes, that is flexible, and easy to put in, and can be used at every level." Haley begins with a "common language" segment, sharing his systems of identifying and numbering positions and zones with the goal of simplicity. In Part 1, "Concepts," Haley shares a detailed lesson on 12 concepts that are "rules to live by" and serve as the building blocks for bringing specificity to his defensive strategy. In Part 2, "Defensive Systems," Haley presents a complete comprehensive marker board breakdown of his Rotation Defense, including area assignments, responsibilities, and variations. In Part 3, "On the Court," Haley takes you through the defense step by step with his players demonstrating the system and it's nuances. Not only do you get the benefit of the system itself, you get the added benefit of one of the world's top coaches, in action, drilling his team with defense. You will see how Haley motives, teaches, and holds his players accountable for every phase of the system! To further enhance understanding the defense, Haley includes game footage showing the system in action and at game speed.
