MEET THE PRESS: Escape Pressing Drills
Throughout the years many coaches have utilize defensive pressure to great success. John Wooden and his famed 2-2-1 press. Rick Pitino and his matchup press. Shaka Smart and his HAVOC defense at VCU. All of these coaches have realized that defensive pressure can provide that edge that can resurrect program, give programs an identity and create an atmosphere that will help lead to victories and championships. As written in Philippians 3:13 I press on toward the goal for the prize.

Every coach that desires to play an aggressive pressing style of defense must empower his or her team with the tools to handle teams that escape traps. These Escape Pressing drills will help players on rotations and adjustments for various escapes that might occur throughout the course of a game. The coach has the ability to make these drills as competitive as he or she would like. For example, The pressing team is looking for deflections, steals and charge opportunities. We keep a scoring system throughout the drill. A team will get one point for a made layup, one point for a deflection, two points for a steal, and five points for a charge.

Hopefully these Escape Pressing drills will add to a coaches arsenal of ideas to use during the course of a season.
