SOS Pressure Defense

Key to Playing and Teaching Hard-nosed Pressure Defense

The SOS Pressure Defensive system is based on the concept of total disruption. Total disruption is achieved by having the defense initiate the action and attack the offense. SOS Pressure Defense disrupts the most potent offenses with techniques and tactics that force the offensive players to react and move away from their normal offensive actions. These defensive tactics set the tempo by striking first rather than reacting to an opponent's game plan. No other system can so thoroughly and effectively generate more offense off the defense, stifle opponent scoring in so many ways, reduce second shot scoring opportunities, and take charge of game tempo and momentum.
