Surprised how often I see zone in premier league. Woodville and south never play zone, terrible that grown ass men can't play defence.

The zone I witnessed was from the teams that won their games. So those that were in for a win got what they wanted.

Except the Melb Tigers coach for U/16 Girls lost them the final. Up 9 with 2 mins to play, lost by 1. Played zone all last qtr.

zone is a legit tactic / play in u16s and 18s - so that's ok , just didn't work for that team. What I saw was in the lower grades where it wasn't supposed to be played. Surely if a coach / club has enough talent to get to classics they clearly know the ruling on zones in u10, 12 and 14s. What I saw was ball inbounded in the back court and 5 players either out of time outs or off a score run back and make a formation around the keyway. Not around the 3 point line or any attempt to sell it as a pack D with one or two players working the ball.

If a team is zoning it doesn't mean they are bad a man to man Defense
That’s like seeing someone crack a cold beer and assuming they hate cider
Zone is just another beverage of the game

Woodville and South not using a zone is the exact reason teams should use a zone. No one should be doing anything those clubs are doing
