All coaches love great defenders, and a player’s defensive ability is usually a deciding factor for playing time and whether they will finish off close games. Most coaches will say that it’s all about effort, the truth is, it’s more than just effort that makes a great defender. Good defenders have great anticipation skills, footwork, balance, strength, are very disciplined and play intelligently.

Learn new breakthroughs in defensive skill development to enhance every aspect of your game. Our experienced and knowledgeable coaches will teach players key concepts, skills, and techniques to become a defensive stopper in transition, on the perimeter, and inside the key.

This camp is filled with valuable skills, insights, and high-level techniques for breaking down individual and team offenses. Dominate on defence, be your coaches go to player at crunch time and never be left out of big games again.
