Signal: Waving open hand across face
An aggressive, quick hitting full court press. Use when a quick turnover is needed. Pressure the inbounder and face guard primary receivers. One hard trap and then recover.

Hard Trap - X1 assumes a pass denial position against Player 1. Face guard and as they cut to receive pass stay on inside hip
X1 traps Player 1 with X4; X1 sets the trap, X4 seals the trap
X2 assumes a pass denial position against Player 2 then rotates to TOP I helpside position denying any pass into the middle
X3 assumes a pass denial position against Player 3 denying the critical sideline pass. CANNOT ALLOW THIS PASS!!
X4 pressures the inbounder angled to influence the inbounds pass to the sideline by over-playing to the inside. If/when the inbounds pass is made X4 seals the trap with X1
X5 assumes a helpside LOW I position against Player 5 and protects the basket
NOTE: If inbounds pass goes to Player 2, same actions occur with X2 & X4 trapping on the ball while X1 assumes the TOP I helpside position
Phase 2 - PASS OUT OF TRAP
