2.4.1 Motion principles against zone
Junior players should not be introduced to zone defence until the age of 14. Accordingly, there should be no need to introduce any offensive principles to use against a zone until the players are more experienced.
There are a number of key principles when playing against a zone defence:
- “Gap the Zone”. Simply, stand in between two defenders rather than directly opposite one. For example, 3 is between x2 and x4.
- “Posts Behind the Zone”. For example 5 is in the low post, and 4 is in the “long corner”
- “Flashing from behind the Zone”
- Use dribble and Post Play against the zone
- Screening the Zone.
Flash Cut from Behind the Zone
- "Behind the Zone” is simply further away from the ball than the defender.
For example, 5 is “behind” x3.
- Often defenders in a zone, will turn to focus on the player with the ball, and this is a cue for a player to “flash” or cut towards the ball – the key to remember is that if you can see the back of a defender’s head, they cannot see you!
- Here 3 cuts from behind the ball to a gap at the free throw line.
