Flex Zone Defense 

Very simple Zone Defense.
A. Very easy for players to understand.
B. Helps stop penetration down the middle compared to a 2-1-2 or a 2-3.
C. You do need a taller athletic player to play the red # 3 .

 

This flex zone defense is a simple but effective flexible half court zone defense . The look of the defense constantly changes to help confuse the other team.

 



How it works.


When the ball is being brought down the court, the #3 player plays high and prevents any dribble penetration.



If the ball is passed to a wing, the #3 player drops back to the foul line area.

 

 

If the ball is passed again down to the corners or low post, the #3 player drops back again.

Naturally, if the ball is played back to the wing, the Number 3 player come back up to the foul line area.
