with Craig Robinson,
Oregon State University Head Coach
Disrupt any zone offense and create more turnovers on defense with Craig Robinson’s 1-3-1 Defense.
Coach Robinson unveils his multi-dimensional 1-3-1 zone attack, which makes it difficult for the opposition to get the ball into the post, taking away a strength of good zone offenses.
Robinson explains rationale any coach can use to develop their defensive philosophy and deciding on their “go-to” defense.
Learn the five defensive positions and the fundamental rotations within his 1-3-1 zone. Learn how to prevent side-to-side passing, prevent easy catches in the middle of the zone and get tips for grabbing more defensive boards.
Throughout his presentation, Robinson entertains extensive questions regarding:
- How to defend various drives
- How to cover the corners and the post
- What to do when the offense screens your baseline runner
- How to defend the overload
- And many more!
Want to be more aggressive, gain momentum, and get more steals? Robinson demonstrates how to trap out of the 1-3-1.
In addition, you will see a “low-risk, high-reward press,” that takes the same 1-3-1 principles and extends the defense into a three-quarter-court press. This trapping press features a delayed trap that uses the element of surprise to force turnovers.
Robinson concludes with wing coverage and post denial breakdown drills and his 4-on-4 shell/boxout game.
Robinson has not only simplified the 1-3-1 and made it easy to implement, he has made it more versatile as well.
