The Tagging Up System with Aaron Fearne
Learn How to Improve your Offensive Rebounding and Transition Defense
“We used the Tagging Up System and finished the Basketball Champions League as the top rebounding team in the league. I learned the philosophy and drills to implement the system from Aaron Fearne. In my experience tagging up gives you an added advantage of generating extra possessions of one of the highest percentage shots in the game of basketball.” Ryan Pannone, NBA G-League Head Coach Erie Bayhawks

Most coaches will point to rebounding and transition defense as two of the most important parts of coaching basketball. This video series will introduce you to one of the most innovative and challenging approaches to these critical phases of the game. Offensive rebounding and transition defense, like any other aspect of basketball, need to be explained and then drilled frequently in order for it to become a habit. The Tagging Up System video with Aaron Fearne demonstrates how to do this with detailed explanations and on-court demonstrations.

Amazing praise from some championship coaches
"We have introduced the Tagging Up System in our emerging pathway. We feel it provides some valuable learning for young players in terms of attacking the offensive glass, transitioning quickly from offence to defense and accountability. Coach Fearne has shared his expertise on this concept and impacted so many coaches at all levels."
Peter Lonergan | Basketball Australia Director of High-Performance Coaching
"The Tagging Up System has had an immediate positive impact on our program. I became interested in the Tagging Up System because I thought it would help us improve our offensive rebounding. What I didn’t realize was how impactful it would be to our transition defense. When our players tag up, they have their matchups and know immediately where they need to be to set our defense. It eliminates confusion in transition and reduces practice time because we no longer have to use so much time repping traditional transition defense."
Cara Consuegra | Head Coach Charlotte 49ers Women’s Basketball
"After years of frustration coaching transition defensive  yelling about communication, and stopping the ball, I have not had to focus on these pieces at all.  The Tagging Up System takes care of who stops the ball, who covers the pass up the floor, who covers the rim run and who clogs the middle of the floor on every possession.  There is 100% accountability which requires every player to focus and give maximum effort or be exposed for your lack of commitment to the team goals. "
Barbara Nelson | Head Coach Myers Park High School
"Using the Tagging Up System will improve your defensive rebounding because you have to work on physical box outs every day in practice. If you execute the system properly, your transition defense will improve and the points you generate off offensive rebounding will outweigh the points you give up in transition."
Ryan Pannone | NBA G-League Head Coach Erie Bayhawks
