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?

Horizontal Offense Cutting Drill

This drill is designed to simulate coordinated cutting by 4 cutters in a horizontal offense. Cutters move from point to point among three lines of cones forming multiple diamonds. Being careful not to run into each other and cut in coordinated fashion, the cutters make their way across the field.
