Tired of Watching Other Teams Run All Over You?
As a youth coach, I’ve struggled with teams breaking our press and getting easy transition baskets. It’s frustrating when you work hard on defense but can’t dictate tempo or get turnovers.
But a good full court press solves this in three key ways:
- It increases the number of possessions. More possessions mean more shot attempts and more scoring chances for your team. This allows less talented teams to compete.
- It forces turnovers by applying relentless pressure. Turnovers lead to transition offense and easy baskets. A good press turns defense into offense.
- It wears down opponents. Full-court pressure is exhausting to play against for a full game. This pressures teams into mistakes and rushed decisions late in games.
The Run and Jump Press maximizes these benefits. It turns undersized teams into potent defensive squads. Your players’ effort and hustle can make up for any size disadvantage.
This press disrupts opponents and creates transition offense through turnovers and rebounds. Keep reading to learn how the Run and Jump can transform your team!
