Dangers of a Zone Defense

Teach your players to be extra aggressive when playing zone defense. Because they aren’t assigned a specific player to guard some players have a tendance to relax. Too many teams suffer in a zone defense not because it was the right strategy but because players don't give it as much effort as they would if they were in a man-to-man. 

A zone defense brings shared accountability. You aren't responsible for a single person and because of that players can get soft. They don't have to worry about getting yelled at if a certain player scores because it wasn't their man!
