2013 Gould Backer Zone Defense

  1. 1. Backer Zone Defense The Husky Way Presented by: Jim Dock Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse Program Director Head Coach Gould Academy - Bethel, Maine
  2. 2. Thank Yous • Gould Academy • Coach Zach Lehman • Greg Gilman & Dirk MacKinght • US Lacrosse
  3. 3. Backer “Gold” Mantra • Pressure the ball when it’s in your zone • Get to the ball when it’s in the air • Play your man to take away the ball • If you get beat, get beat to the inside • When you get beat to the inside, follow the ball and seal off the rollback
  4. 4. Purpose of Gold Zone • Force opposing teams out of their comfort zone • Since it’s a zone, MDD will improve • Pressure them to make mistakes – Pass earlier than they normally would – Pass or shoot under pressure – Take outside, low-percentage shots
  5. 5. Actual First Meeting Footage
  6. 6. “Gold” Backer Zone Set SSM SSM Backer Crease Man Pole Pole
  7. 7. Gold Personnel • SSMs Up Top & Bottom Corner Poles: Must be aggressive, have good field awareness, & be disciplined • Backer: Most athletic & aggressive pole • Crease: Quickest & best takeaway man • Goalie: Good at saving outside shots
  8. 8. Who Does What???
  9. 9. Bungee Principal: • All players are on a imaginary bungee cord that runs from their waist to the center of the goal line • When the ball is in their zone, they extend out and stretch the bungee • When the ball leaves their zone, the bungee pulls them back into the hole
  10. 10. SSDM Up Top On-Ball • SSDM steps up to play the ball in his zone • Take the ball or get beat to the inside • Drop step to show dodger the inside lane • Seal off the O’s rollback • Do not cross the “Rhino Line” • When your man passes the ball off, slough-in to 3-5 yards above the crease
  11. 11. SSDM Off-Ball • Sloughed-in 3-5 yards above the crease on their side of the “Rhino Line” • Should have back to the ball, facing his man to avoid getting caught ball-watching • Sticks are up to the inside blocking passing lanes • As soon ball is in flight to his man, he goes to him and tries to get there before the ball does • SSDMs have backer responsibilities for the poles on their half of the field
  12. 12. Bottom Corner Poles • Main responsibility is blocking the passing lanes with their sticks and sniping “nuggets” • When playing the ball, follow the Gold Mantra • If there’s a mismatch, apply more pressure • Do not follow ball or engage behind GLE • SSDMs have their back
  13. 13. Backer • Backs up the ball in the bowtie • Steps up with authority to meet the ball when it’s in his zone • Force the ball carrier to pass, shoot, or rollback into the SSDM for the double • Backer is always between the ball and the crease man
  14. 14. Crease Man • Only defenseman that plays the ball behind the crease (3-5 yards from crease) • When the ball is behind, crease man takes the top side and gives the inside roll (where the backer is waiting) – Crease man & backer should use the crease itself as a “third man” – When the crease man goes behind, the furthest SSDM covers the crease & the other SSDM covers the two top zones
  15. 15. How Gould Uses Gold • After a time out or on a restart, we go into our Gold set • We prefer to have our SSDMs on the field, but all middies have practiced Gold • We use it no matter what the O set is • If O overloads to one half, we “Bingo” out of Gold into our “Husky” man defense
  16. 16. Special Situations & Calls • “Regular”: Allows adjacent passes • “Apache”: Cover ball & lock off adjacents • “Fish”: All-out pressure to take advantage of a mismatch • “Ironman”: Lock onto dominant player or use against a mismatch
  17. 17. When Things Go Wrong • SSDM turns ball carrier to the outside • SSDM crosses the Rhino Line • Failure to hand off the ball carrier • Bottom corner poles are sleeping • Backer comes with their stick instead of their shoulder • Bungee failure • Communication breakdown
  18. 18. Implementing Gold Practice 6 on 5 •Practice against several O sets (1-4-1, 2-2-2, etc.) •Focus on off-ball movement •Keep sticks up in passing lanes •Cut off crease man •Run at game speed
