Perimeter Defense

As coaches we are not always fortunate enough to the same type of player each and every season. Often times we must adjust our system to the players that we have available to us. One adjustment, based on the type of player that you have, would be your defensive system.

In the video clip below Nancy Dorsey, (St.James Academy (KS) Head Coach;2015 AVCA National High School Coach of the Year;2015 Kansas Class 5A state champions) shows you a defense that she call the Perimeter Defense. This is a defense that is effective for teams with small blockers and quick athletes. In the clip she shows how to release from base defense and get each player into proper position.
