Steve Wojciechowski, Marquette University Head Coach;
former Duke University Associate Head Coach; 1998 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, 2x All-ACC Team, Honorable Mention AP All American, 2x National Champion as assistant coach, 5x ACC regular season champion, 3x Final Four appearances, part of 2008 US Olympic Gold Medal Coaching Staff
Steve Wojciechowski reveals the drills that have made Duke University one of the top defensive teams in the country for the past decade. Now you can shore up your man defense using this complete defensive progression.
From defensive stance and slides to working out of help-side positions to stop dribble penetration, Wojciechowski leaves no stone unturned as he teaches individual defense.
He demonstrates how to contest and pressure the ball with confidence and quick decision making skills. You will see footwork, hand and body positions that will make you a defensive threat and leave opposing players wishing you were guarding someone else.
Coach Wojciechowski moves from 1-on-1 drills to 2-on-2 drills adding a help side defender that must communicate with the on-ball defender to create confidence between teammates. In his 2-on-2 drills, players learn how to use a commanding voice to communicate with each other, how to pivot and close out, and defend off-ball cutters.
3-on-3 and 4-on-4 Drills
In Duke’s 3-on-3 driving lines, players learn to communicate and stunt on a drive, help one another, and force the offense to work hard using as many passes and as much movement, as possible. Use Wojo’s 4-on-4 shell to ensure your players are constantly closing out, communicating, and staying in a stance throughout the entire possession.
Coach Wojciechowski combines all of his defensive principles into a 5-on-5 half court defense. Coach demonstrates help-side defense and rotations to cover every scoring threat that a defense can face. He explains how they handle ball screens from the wing, post defense, and ball screens from the top of the key using two separate calls, Black and Blue.
Invite Coach Wojciechowski into your gym and build a commanding, pressure filled defense that no opponent will want to face.
