Can anyone help me to understand the fundamentals of Zone Defence?
I have been coaching for several years now but have only taught man to man defence thus far. I have never played netball but have played a great deal of basketball.
My questions are:
- Do you zone all the way down the court? ie What about the defensive and attacking thirds?
- What are the onbjectives of zoning? ie Intercept a pass. Stop the flow of play.
- What drills can I use to teach zone?
- Is there any literature on teaching zone defence?
I am coaching fifteen year olds this season so I will need to explain what we are trying to achieve and how we will achieve it.
