Aberfeldie Jets prioritise player development and strive to provide an environment that supports all players to be the best they can be. The Jets expect all coaches of U8 – U14 teams to observe man to man defence principles, instead of playing a zone defence, to assist and support players to develop their skills and understanding of the game. Most clubs in the associations we play in also support the No – Zone expectation however it is not formally enforced by referees. Please review the Basketball Victoria’s No Zone Procedure for guidance on what a violation of the “no zone rule” involves. For more on the importance of focusing on man to man defensive principles please read this article from Coach Mac here.
