Zone Defense Analysis

Thanks to Ben Greene for breaking down this defense during the January 2011 USA Ultimate Level II clinic in Chapel Hill, NC.

This presentation attempts to answer the following questions about zone defense:

  1. What are the advantages for the defense in terms of space? What are the threats for the offense?
  2. What disc position is most advantageous for the defense? For the offense?
  3. What (lack of) thrower skills bring advantages for the defense? What skills bring the offensive threats?
  4. Under what field conditions does the defense have the advantage? … does the offense have threats?
