ZONE DEFENSE - WHY ABERFELDIE JETS DISCOURAGE IT IN U10-U14's
Aberfeldie Jets discourages zone defense in our U10-U14 teams.
Aberfeldie Jets encourage our U10-U14 Coaches to observe man to man defense principles instead of playing a zone defense to assist and support coaches to improve their skills through communication and training.
We can't stop our opposition from playing it and we ask our Coaches to teach offensive plays to beat it.
Coach Mac has a good article about not playing zone here and the NBA in conjunction with USA Basketball has also written about it here.
