3-2 Basketball Zone Defense Rotations
3-2 (1-2-2) zones are commonly used to defend teams with good outside shooting and/or weaker post players. You can also use it as a trapping defense.
Youth Coaches: Even though, you CAN win more games, AVOID playing any type of zone defense, because it can teach bad habits and hinder the long-term
development of your players. Our advice would be to focus on Man to Man Defense.

Basic Rotations and Positions of the 3-2 (1-2-2) zone
Ball on wing:
- Defender 3 comes out to guard the ball.
- Defender 1 drops down to the high post area.
Ball in corner:
- Defender 5 goes out to guard the ball.
- Defender 4 slides over to defend the low post.
- Defender 2 drops down to either defend the opposite low block or the wing if a skip pass is thrown.
- Defender 1 defends the high post area.
- Defender 3 can either sink in to stop penetration or apply pressure by denying the reversal pass.
- Defender 1 and defender 3 form the trap.
- Defender 2 slides over to slightly above the free throw line. He is anticipating a pass back to the top of the key or a skip pass to the opposite wing.
- Defender 5 takes a step out to try to anticipate a pass to the corner. He shouldn’t sneak out too far if there is a player in the high or low post area.
Trapping the corner:
- Defender 3 & defender 5 form the trap.
- Defender 4 slides over to defend low post.
- Defender 1 anticipates a pass into the high post or wing.
- Defender 2 plays ‘center field.’ He covers the top of the key until defender 1 recovers. He covers the skip pass to the opposite wing. He covers anybody cutting to the middle of the lane.

3-2 Zone Defense – Hoop Student
The 3-2 zone defense implements perimeter ball pressure and heavy low post defense to limit scoring opportunities for the offensive team.
This type of zone defense formation features three perimeter players at the top of the zone and two post players near the bottom of the zone.
X1 and X2 cover the free throw line extended areas near the wings while X3 covers the middle from the high post towards the top of the key.
X4 and X5 cover the low post block areas, the center of the lane near the basket, and out towards the left and right corners.
The sections below demonstrate some basic examples of the 3-2 zone defense.

This section covers some of the general principles for the 3-2 zone defense.
One of the benefits of the 3-2 zone defense is its overall effectiveness in slowing down or completely stagnating the offensive flow.
In the default 3-2 zone, the ball handler at the top doesn’t typically receive immediate ball pressure from the middle top defender.
Instead, the ball handler could shoot the perimeter jump shot, which is what the defense prefers.
Additionally, if the ball handler decides to not take the jump shot but pass to a teammate on the wing, then that wing player receives immediate ball pressure from one of the wing defenders.
Furthermore, as an alternative, the wing defenders could extend the defense while the ball is still at the top of the key and execute deny defense as shown on one of the examples below.
In that situation, if an offensive wing player attempts to backdoor cut to the basket, then that player will be most likely tagged by the middle defender or one of the post defenders.
Therefore, simple backdoor action is rendered ineffective and the defense could still be at an advantage.
The only options that the offense really have are to play through the high posts at the elbows or make skip passes across the court or to the corners.
The problem with this is that the high post will most certainly be guarded by the middle defender (usually represented by X3) and skip passes can be risky if they are not passed accurately.
Great against non-shooting teams
Another strength of the 3-2 zone defense is its usefulness against teams that do not have good three point shooters.
The middle defender sags off the point guard at the top of the key and the only other “open” spots are in the corners.
This means that if the point guard cannot shoot long distance and the other offensive players are not great shooters either, then the 3-2 zone defense will cause much trouble for the offense.
Bad against good shooting teams
On the other hand, one of the downsides to the 3-2 zone defense is that it is ineffective or totally useless against teams with great shooters.
As mentioned previously, if the point guard cannot shoot three pointers, this zone can be effective.
However, if the point guard can shoot the basketball, then that player could have an opportunity to score several points against the defense.
Likewise, if the other offensive players are able to shoot as well, this zone defense is not good to execute.
In addition, another key weaknesses of this zone is that the corners are wide open. For example, if an offensive player receives the ball in the high post, then that same player can simply pass out to the shooter in the corner for wide open three point shots.
Penetration = Zone Breakdown
If the point guard is quick enough to get by the middle defender at the top and the other wing players do not converge to stop the penetration, the zone is effectively broken down at that point.
The point guard would then have the options to shoot the mid range shot or floater, pass into the low post, or execute the kick out pass to one of the shooters, specifically in the corner.
Therefore, it is important that the defenders, especially at the top of the zone make the proper rotations if the zone shifts from one location to another.
In a nutshell, the main purpose of the 3-2 zone defense is to limit the offensive team’s options to create scoring possibilities, especially on the perimeter or within the low post.

This section contains demonstrations of the normal defensive rotations within the 3-2 zone defense.
Top – Wing Entry Denial
For this example, the wing defenders (X1 and X2) will attempt to deny the top to wing entry pass in order to slow down the offense.
X3 sags off the ball handler and guards the high post area.
X1 and X2 deny any potential passes for the other two offensive perimeter players.
X4 and X5 stay within the respective low post areas.
X1 quickly closes out on the offensive wing player.
X3 continues to guard the high post near the elbow.
X2 drops back into the lane near the bottom of the free throw line area.
This action stops the offensive player at the top of the key or the weak side offensive wing from making a straight cut to the basket for possible floaters or layups.
X5 fronts the strong side offensive post player to take away the potential wing to post entry pass.
Also, by fronting the post, the strong side post defender can more effectively close out on a shooter if the ball moves to the corner which is demonstrated in the next example.
X4 steps into the lane in front of the basket to take away potential backdoor lob attempts over the top of the zone.
X5 closes out and guards the ball in an attempt to stop a dribble drive or contest possible jump shots.
X4 fronts the strong side low post player to prevent the post entry feed or simply guards the low post straight up.
X1 sags back a bit to prevent any passes to the middle or to help stop dribble penetration of the ball handler in the corner.
X3 continues to guard the high post area looking to slow down players cutting through the middle.
X2 also sags into the paint to stop potential cutting or help on possible dribble penetration.
Here is an example of a corner trap.
This option could be useful when the offense only has one low post player as shown on the diagram.
For this sequence, 3 received the ball in the corner.
When that happens, X5 closes out on the ball as before.
However, this time, X1 would also help double team and trap the ball instead of guarding the high post.
Also, X3 moves towards the wing player to deny the reversal pass while X4 fronts the low post player.
X2 remains near the top and splits the difference between X1 and X4 if one of those players decides to cut to the high post or to the basket.
Additionally, it is not shown on the diagram but if 4 occupied the left side wing or corner, then X2 could drop back to protect the basket.
For that scenario, X2 would be able to provide weak side defense for X4 in the event that 4 decided to backdoor cut to the rim.
Sliding Zone Rotations
This section includes a variation of the normal 3-2 zone defense in which the middle defender, X3 is known as a slider.
For these zone rotations, X3 will place more defensive pressure on the ball handler at the top of the key and also guard offensive players located on the low post blocks.
When the ball is at the top of the key, X3 simply puts pressure on the ball handler.
Essentially, this is similar to the 1-2-2 zone defense.
X1 quickly makes a close out on the offensive wing player which for this example is 2.
X3 moves down towards the strong side elbow to guard the high post.
X2 takes a step near the left side elbow watching for any potential skip passes that may be thrown across the court.
X5 fronts the post to deny the entry pass inside.
X4 takes a step into the lane to guard the basket and possibly prevent lobs over the top of the zone defense.
X5 closes out and guards the ball with the intent of stopping a dribble drive or contesting a possible jump shot.
X3 moves from the high post area to front 5 from receiving the low post entry pass from 3.
X4 stays near the center of the lane and denies any lob passes over the top of the zone.
X1 cuts back just a step to watch for any potential skip pass from the corner to the top of the key.
X2 steps into the lane to guard the high post and a potential basket cut from 1 at the top of the key.
Low Post Entry
If 3 is able to make the low post entry pass into 5, an immediate double team occurs with the slider X3 and the post defender X4.
X2 steps into the center of the lane and also tags 4 on the opposite post block.
X1 moves back towards the strong side elbow to guard the high post and prevent a basket cut by 1 at the top.
X5 continues to guard the offensive player that is located in the strong side corner.
Low Post to Top
If 5 is able to pass to the top from the double team, the slider most likely will not be able to quickly recover back to the top of the key.
Therefore, X2 will then provide temporary help coverage.
X2 temporarily sprints up to close out on 1.
Next, X3 moves swiftly back to the top in order to guard 1.
When the slider is in the correct position, X2 returns to guard the original zone area near the weak side high post.
X1 continues to guard the offensive wing player.
X5 continues to guard the offensive player located in the corner.
X4 continues to guard the strong side low post offensive player momentarily.
Once the ball is returned to the top of the key, all defensive players will make movement back into their original spots.

1-2-2 Zone Defense
The 1-2-2 zone has the advantages of being able to pressure the ball on the outside arc, allow for some trapping, and can be effective against a good outside shooting team (whereas the 2-3 zone is more effective against inside scoring and dribble penetration).
The weaknesses are the (1) high post area, and (2) this defense can be attacked from the corners. The diagrams show how the zone shifts. Also see the animation.
Ball on the wing.
See Diagram B. The wing defender covers this and X1 drops down to the ball-side free-throw line area. Anticipating that the next pass may go to the corner, X5 slides over to mid-lane. If the pass goes to the corner, X4 can sprint out and X5 rotate more easily to the ballside low block.
Trapping the wing.
See Diagram C. If you want to gamble and trap the wing, use X1 and the ball-side wing to make the trap. The opposite wing slides to the high post. Although trapping the wing adds an element of risk to your defense, consider this when the opponent’s ball-handling skills are not good, or if you are behind and need to pressure the ball.
Opponents will attack this zone from the corner. Your defenders must shift quickly to prevent the pass from the corner to the low post.
Ball in the corner, no trap, deny the corner to wing pass.
See Diagram D. X4 will come out on the ball, and X5 rotates quickly to defend the ball-side low post. The weak-side wing (X3) will drop down to the weak-side low block and cover the backside. X2 will deny the pass back out.
Trapping the corner
See Diagram E. You can try trapping the corner if X2 can get down there quickly. Once again, X4 will come out on the ball, and the ball-side wing (X2) will sprint down and trap. X5 must move quickly and “get there” to defend the ball-side low post. X1 fills the gap between the ball-side elbow and the three-point arc. The weak-side wing (X3) will move just inside the free-throw line and cover the high post and backside.
Defending the high post
This can be a problem with this zone. We’ll discuss some strategies for stopping this.
1. When the ball is on the wing, and you are not trapping the wing (diagram F), X1 should slide down and deny the pass to the high post.
2. When the ball is on the wing, and you are trapping the wing (diagram G), then the opposite wing must defend the high post.
3. When the ball is passed to the point, the opposite wing must defend the high post (if there is a high post player there). See Diagrams H and I.
4. If you are still having difficulty defending the high post, and if the opponent’s point guard is not a good shooter, then consider going to the 3-2 zone.
3-2 Zone Defense
With the 3-2 zone, you drop the point defender (X1) down on the free throw line. Because of this, you can also position your wing defenders out a little wider.
This will help defending the high post, but allows the point guard some open shots.
With the 3-2 zone, you can still cover the wing the same as in the 1-2-2 zone seen in diagram B. You can trap the wing with the wing defender and the middle defender, while the opposite wing slides into the high post (Diagram K). The weakside low defender X5 moves to the middle of the lane when the ball in on the wing.
Cover the corner by having the ball-side low defender (X4) come out and the weak-side low defender (X5) rotate to the ball-side low block, exactly the same as with the 1-2-2 zone (Diagrams D and E above). The weak-side wing (X3) moves to the ball-side elbow.
Optionally, instead of X5 sliding over to cover the ball-side low block, you could cover the ball-side low post with X1 sliding down (see Diagram L), but this could cause a size mis-match. Personally, I would defend this using the same rotations as used in the 1-2-2 zone above.
7-on-5 drill gives zone defenses a needed boost
The 7-on-5 drill is a very good drill that our team used throughout the year to help players improve their ability to play solid, team-oriented zone defense.
This highly competitive drill takes only five to seven minutes to run and there is an offensive or defensive winner at the end of the drill. The losing team runs one sprint for each point difference between the two sides.
While this drill can be run in any zone defense, it’s shown here using a 1-2-2 zone. That’s what our team primarily used.
DIAGRAM 1: Start out with five players on defense using a 1-2-2 set (or whatever zone defense your team primarily uses). Align seven offensive players in the spots shown. Start out with five offensive players on the perimeter and one on each block.
The drill begins with a checked possession at the top of the key.
The only way the defense can score is if it forces a turnover or deflects the ball out of bounds. The defense gets one point for each turnover forced or a deflection out of bounds.
Offensive players can’t move on the inside or on the perimeter until a shot is taken. They also are not allowed to dribble, but can shoot at anytime.
The offense scores one point for each basket made and are allowed to go to the offensive boards after a shot attempt.
» RELATED: Footwork, conditioning drills for ball-hawking defenders
Play continues until the defense gains possession of the ball. Set a time limit and keep score.
DIAGRAM 2: Defensive players follow the proper defensive rotation principles based on where the offense is swinging the ball. Remember, the offense can’t dribble to break down the zone, so defenders must react and rotate to cover the passes and movements of the ball.
This diagram shows the proper rotation of the defenders when the ball is passed into the corner.
DIAGRAM 3: Due to the fact that they are outnumbered on the perimeter and also must account for two offensive players on the blocks, defenders must react quickly on all cross-court skip passes.
This diagrams shows the proper rotations when the ball is passed to the opposite side.
This drill forces the defense to play very hard, which all coaches want on defense. Because the only way the defense can score is by a forced turnover or deflection, the drill encourages your zone defenders to play aggressively and take chances. They must also talk and communicate on defense at all times.
Coaches must call fouls very liberally. Every three fouls on the defense counts as a point for the offense team. Defenders must constantly pressure the ball, trap the corners and contest all shots.
Even though this drill is shown against a 1-2-2 defensive set, it also can be adapted for teams that play 2-3 zone or a flat 3-2 zone defense. The rationale is if your defense can guard seven offensive players in this drill, they’ll be more prepared to guard five players in live-game situations.
How it Works, Pros/Cons and Alternatives
When I began my basketball playing career, I started by playing man-to-man defense – as do most people. However, zone defense has many advantages and should be a part of introductory learning of the game of basketball.
Zone defenses are important for limiting fouls, hiding weaker defenders, and preventing player fatigue. When choosing your specific zone defense to play, there are many attributes to consider.
The 3-2 zone allows for strong coverage of the high and low posts in addition to helping with rebounding. The only caveat about the 3-2 zone is that there is no ball pressure on the offensive point guard.
With that, here is everything you need to know about the 3-2 zone defense.
3-2 Zone Defense Overview
Before learning about the 3-2 zone defense, we must differentiate between the 3-2 zone and the 1-2-2 zone.
The 3-2 zone has three defenders in a horizontal line, with two wing defenders and another defender at the middle of the free throw line or 3-point line (left to right: D2, D3, and D1). Meanwhile, the two back defenders (left to right: D4 and D5) begin close to the basket near the edge of each side of the paint.
Basketball Moves to the Wing
Let us set the stage with the three offensive guards (left to right: O3, O1, and O2) on the three-point arc with the point guard (O1) at the top of the key while the other two (O2 and O3) are in position for the above-the-break 3-pointer. The center (O5) is at the free throw line area, and the power forward (O4) plays on the low right-sided block.
The point guard (O1) passes to one of the above-the-break guards (O2), and here is how the defense should react: D1 moves to the player with the ball, the weak side guard (D2) moves from the weak-side wing to halfway between the high and low posts on the weak side, and the power forward (D4) moves to the hoop.
In general, everyone moves closer to the ball, and the off-the-ball strong side defenders (D3 and D5) deny passes to O4 and O5 with D1 guarding O2 on the ball-side wing.
Basketball Moves to the Corner
Now if O1 makes his or her way to the ball-side corner with O2 above the break on the ball side, D1 “falls into the gap” to allow for a reversal pass and prevent dribble penetration. By sagging, D1 allows the zone to pack in and have D1, D3, D4, and D5 playing defense on the strong side.
D5 has moved to the corner to guard O1, and D1’s position prevents O1 from passing to O4 and O5. D3 guards O5 at the free throw line, while D2 is on the weak side of the restricted area to provide help defense if necessary. D2 is still in position to jump out to guard O3 on the weak side if a skip pass is executed.
How to Trap the Corner
When the ball moves to the corner, there is the option for D1 to join D5 on the ball. By trapping O1 in the corner, the zone defense can work to perfection. If the trap is well-executed, then a turnover is probable.
With D1 and D5 in the corner, D2 and D3 have moved closer to the basket. D2 is close to the middle of the paint while D3 is in a similar position as when D1 was falling into the gap.
Basketball Moves to the Low Post
If O1 passes to O4 in the low post, then the defensive positions remain practically the same as when the basketball was in the corner with O1. The main exception is D1 guarding O2 closely to avoid a pass out from O4 to O2 for an open shot.
The paint defenders – D4 on O4, D3 on O5, and D2 on the weak-side post – are packing the paint to avoid an easy two-point shot, and D3 has moved closer to the low post, but can still deny a pass to O5.
Basketball Moves to the High Post
If O5 has the ball at the high post area, D3 guards the ball. The defensive positions are now a 3-2 zone with every defender in or near the paint. From left to right, D2, D3, and D1 are close to being in a horizontal line.
D4 and D5 are found on the low blocks, as D5 guards O4. Unfortunately, in this defensive set, D1 and D2 are playing off of O2 and O3, respectively.
If you’re more of a visual learner, this video shows you the movements of top three players in the 3-2 zone:
What is The Purpose of a 3-2 Zone Defense?
The 3-2 zone defense can stop the opposing team from making outside shots, but it typically is trying to confuse the offense. At the same time, it can keep the defensive players well-rested in comparison to playing man-to-man defense.
Falling into the gap allows for reversal passes, so defensive teammates must be strong in communication skills to avoid the offense from moving the ball quickly enough to get an open shot.
When Do Teams Typically Implement a 3-2 Zone Defense?
The 3-2 zone defense can be used when the opposing team has strong outside shooters as well as when the opposition has offensively challenged big men.
Although there are times in which the 3-2 zone defense leaves outside shooters open, adaptations can be made to allow the zone defenders to jump out to certain shooters. The ability to trap certain “zones” of the court is also an important aspect of the defense to cause turnovers.
Pros & Cons of a 3-2 Zone Defense
- The offense has to change its game plan: By executing a well-designed 3-2 zone, the defense is preventing the offense from running its regular game plan. If all goes well, the 3-2 leads to turnovers by forcing poor decisions when passing.
- The defense is flexible: The 3-2 defense can lock down in the paint, but more importantly, it has the three guards being able to guard the three-point arc.
- The zone prevents fatigue on defense: With specific players staying on the strong and weak sides when ball movement occurs, the 3-2 zone allows for the defenders to not exert too much energy.
- It allows for guarding the high and low posts well: The 3-2 zone’s rotations are designed for the defensive players to front the post when the ball is on the wing. In addition, the high post has a dedicated defender.
- The zone leads to more defensive rebounds: When the shot is attempted, the two low post defenders are each in a very good position to box out and rebound.
- The top of the key is an issue: The first of three main problems with the 3-2 zone is the fact that, unlike a 1-2-2 zone defense, there is no pressuring of the ball. Although pressuring and trapping can occur after a pass or two, the original formation of the zone does not usually force the point guard into bad decisions.
- The zone can allow the offense to rain 3-pointers: If the point guard is a good shooter, then the 3-2 zone will need to pressure him or her. If the team can shoot well from the outside, defensive rotations will be very important. Any pass to an outside shooter needs to be quickly defended. In addition, if the offense plays with four or five players around the three-point arc, then the defense could be in trouble with a 3-2 zone.
- Dribble penetration can unravel the zone: Similar to other zones, if dribble penetration is unable to be prevented, it can wreak havoc on the 3-2 zone defense. If a quick guard can dribble through a team’s 3-2 defense, then that 3-2 defense should not be used against that offense. In order for the 3-2 to be successful, dribble penetration has to be halted.
Other Types of Zone Defenses
Now let’s cover the other types of zone defense you might see teams setup…
2-3 Zone Defense
The 2-3 zone is the most popular choice for coaches when implementing a zone on defense. Unlike the 3-2 defense, the three-point line is not as well covered in the 2-3 defense.
The main reason to use the 2-3 zone is to prevent the offense from dribble penetration and force an abundance of outside shots.
1-2-2 Zone Defense
The 1-2-2 zone allows for a strong defense against impressive shooting teams and at the same time, the defensive positions give the team opportunities to trap the offense.
Another strong aspect of the 1-2-2 is the ability to transition to a quick and efficient fast break on the other end of the court. This defense is unable to guard the high post well and rebounding can be an issue.
1-3-1 Zone Defense
With the 1-3-1 zone defense, the defenders may be the most well-rested because they do not have to move as much as in the other defenses.
This zone is versatile and can protect the middle of the court, but corner 3-pointers are tough to defend with it.
1-1-3 Zone Defense
Now this is a type of zone defense that can be sure to confuse the opponent, as one defender plays the top of the key, another plays at the foul line, and the three remaining defenders are lower than the foul line.
Rotations and quickness are both important for this zone.
Match Up Zone
For teams ready for an advanced type of zone, the match up zone is for you. Coaches can make a match up zone into whatever they would like, as it is a cross between man-to-man and a zone.
There are rules designed by the coach to make sure the defense can dictate what the offense can do. The match up zone can morph throughout the game so the offense does not know what is coming next.
Amoeba Zone Defense
Another defensive zone that mimics the man-to-man defense is the amoeba, which sets up with a 1-1-2-1 formation.
Steals and fast breaks are the name of the game for this zone, as it is a risky one that causes turnovers, but it can also lead to easy baskets against you.
Finally, let’s cover the list of defenses other than a zone setup…
Man-to-man, the opposite of the prototypical zone defense, is a defense in which each player is matched up on defense against an opposing player.
Diamond & One
If there is a star offensive player – usually a shooting guard or small forward – that needs special coverage, the defense will employ a diamond & one in which one player is playing man-to-man while the others are forming a diamond.
The top defender is at the middle of the three-point arc.
Box & One
Similar to the diamond & one, the box & one is for that one impressive offensive player, which can be a point guard. The box formation is dictated by the four corners of the restricted area.
Triangle & Two
For teams with two strong offensive players, the triangle & two could be for you.
The low post defenders are in the same spots as the box & one while the top defender is near the middle of the free throw line.
How to Coach the Basketball 3-2 Zone half-court Defense
How to coach and teach the basketball 3-2 zone
The strength of the three-two-zone defense is the mobility of the front line, which must attack opponents aggressively. They attempt to cause misplays, violations, and bad passes.
It is an excellent defense to fast break from. In Diagram 3-2 (1), X1, X2, and X3 should be the three quickest players, because they are expected to make the most defensive movements and slides.
Because he has to drop into the middle foul-lane area frequently and, of the three front-line players, most likely be in the best rebounding position, X3 should be in the position shown on the diagram. X3 is responsible for defending the area around and near the foul-lane area.
The wing players X1 and X2, the guards, are responsible for the weak-side medium and low areas near the basket whenever the ball is on the opposite side of the court.
X4 is your power forward and X5 the center. These two should probably be your two best defensive rebounders
Against taller teams, X1, X2, and X3 should play the ball, two-teaming when possible. This zone is weakest in the side and medium pivot areas when the opposing team has a good pivot player.
In such cases, X1, X2, and X3 must help rebound. The back of the zone is vulnerable to quick movement from the corners and is weak underneath, and behind the front line should the front line be slow in retreating.
Diagram 3-2 (1)
This shows the defensive movement with the ball. Slides are numbered as the ball is passed from (1) 1 to 2, (2) 2 to 5, and (3) 4 to 5. The shorter arrow lines indicate slides by the defensive players X1, X2, X3, X4, and X5.
3-2 Sliding Zone Defence – Functional Basketball Coaching
The 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence is a match-up zone defence that looks to create mismatches between interior and perimeter players. The 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence places a number of players around the basket and limits the distance that players have to move while still engaging the player with the ball and those offensive players one pass away.
The core tactic which makes the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence different is the rotation of the top player through the middle of the zone defences help positions. In the diagrams below, the Three (3) rotates along the strong side of the keyway covering specific offensive positions of importance. The Small Forward or Finesse Forward is a good selection for this position, as this player’s attributes is usually a combination of speed, agility, and size. For this reason the Three (3) has the speed to match-up with perimeter players at the top of the 3-2 formation and then match the size and agility needed to spoil the offensive play of post players either in the high or low post.
Because of the match-up tactical element within the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence, a feature of the defensive rotations is to isolate the ball when passed into the long corner. When either the ball is passed through hands or otherwise the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence attempts to clamp the ball into this area of the floor and limit the possible offensive targets except through long and slow skip passes away from the basket.
Another aspect of the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence that is of significance is it leaves the Centre close to the basket at all times. Often a weakness of too many zone defences is their problem keeping the teams often best shot blocker and strongest rebounder close to the basket. As an added the benefit the Centre plays help defence if the ball is attempted to be lobbed into post targets. This would again place the Five (5) between the basket and the offensive player.
3-2 Sliding Zone Defence Diagram 1
The 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence set-up is the same as any other 3-2 Zone Defence. This is an important aspect, as teams will not anticipate the variation to the standard rotation.
It is important the top player in the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence is a tall or very long player so they are able to withstand the different demands of the ‘slider’ position.
The Three (3) stops the penetration initially into the key. Upon the pass to the wing Two (2) moves to guard the ball as with a conventional 3-2- Zone Defence. The Three (3) however moves to the strong side high post.
Weak side players One (1) and Five (5) shift to the split line and into strong help positions.
3-2 Sliding Zone Defence Diagram 2
On the pass from the wing position to the long corner Four (4) closes-out to the ball.
Upon this rotation two other players also move. Three (3) shifts into the strong side low post. If there is an offensive player in the low post Five (5) will engage and defend this player until Three (3) can rotate into this position.
The defensive option when guarding the post can include three (3) fronting the post or halving the post. With Five (5) in a help position the likelihood of successful lob should be very low so fronting is a very viable option.
One (1) rotates into the strong side high post position.
Two (2) continues to hold their position and denies the reversal of the ball back from the long corner.
One (1) should look to gamble on the long and slow skip pass from the long corner and attempt to deflect or steal the ball if possible.
3-2 Sliding Zone Defence Diagram 3
With the ball in the long corner the 3-2 Sliding Zone Defence is set and tries to maintain pressure by keeping the ball in this position.
As with all zone defences the more the ball is moved and offensive players re-position themselves the weaknesses of the zone defence will be exposed.
For this reason, players such as Two (2) and Three (3) are in full denial so the ball cannot be easily rotated through hands forcing the majority of the defensive players to also rotate.
If there is no low post target then Five (5) can lift slightly higher along the split line and fill space back towards the middle of the floor.
90,000 Volleyball Zones – Your Volleyball
The court is divided into 2 lines and 6 zones in classic volleyball. There are first and second lines. Each line includes 3 zones. The first line includes 2, 3 and 4 zones. In the second: 1, 5 and 6. Usually the first line is involved in the attack and block, the second – in the defense and reception. The transition is carried out clockwise
In amateur classic volleyball, players usually stand in the following positions:
1 number – serve and defense in reception and in attack.Can only attack from behind the line of attack.
2 number – attack and block. Less often – receiving a close serve.
3 number – player under the net. His responsibilities include passing and blocking. Does not participate in the reception.
4 number – attack and block. Less often – receiving a close serve.
5 number – defense in reception and in attack. Can only attack from behind the line of attack.
6 number – libero. The main defender of the team.
Specifications, size of the volleyball court
Width x length: 18 x 9 meters.
Net height: 243 cm for men, 224 for women.
Lines: end line (delineates the court), attack line or 3-meter, middle line.
The role of players
- Player of the first tempo (central blocker, setter, “passer”) – stands under the net, gives a pass to the attackers in the 2nd or 4th zone, and also blocks the attacking attacks of the opponent. Does not participate in the reception. If he was given a pass to hit, then such a pass is usually short and low: literally half a meter above the net.Central blocker number 3. This is usually the tallest player on the team. The role of the setter is very important – after all, it is he who gives the pass to the shot and in a split second determines who needs to block. It can be considered the brain of the teams, it is he who directs the game. A good pass is a guarantee of victory in any game, but novice players value this role very little, because the passer does not participate in the attack. Notable players: Luigi Mastrangelo, Valevska, Dmitry Musersky, Yulia Merkulova.
- Players of the second tempo (sideplayers) – attack from the edges of the net, participate in all elements of the game: reception, block, serve (after the transition), pass and attacking blow.On the site, their numbers: 2nd and 5th. Their task is both to score the ball, playing against the opponent’s block, and to put an effective block together with the central blocker against the attack. Usually they attack in any zone, except for the 6th zone, because there is a libero at the reception – the main defender of the team. Usually they do not participate in the reception. The complexity of this role lies in the fact that such players have to hone all the elements of the game, while, for example, the setter only needs to be able to pass and put a block. Notable players: Zhiba, Francesca Piccinini, Elena Godina, Sergey Tetyukhin.
- Diagonal – the tallest and strongest players. Their main task is to attack and serve. They also participate in the block. This is the main strength of the team, which earns them points. Diagonal ones do not participate in the reception, on the court they are located diagonally to each other. They are numbered 1 and 4. Attack from the second line, insuring the unsuccessful pass of the setter. The diagonal number “1” has no right to hit from the 2nd or 4th zone! His run and strike must occur BEFORE the line of attack. The number 1 diagonal is also responsible for serving. Notable players: Ivan Milkovich, Rosir Calderon, Maxim Mikhailov, Ekaterina Gamova.
- Libero (Italian for “free”) – second line player number 6. Located in the very center of his court. This is the main defender of the team, responsible for receiving serves and power shots. Usually this is the shortest member of the team, because he has to fall frequently and pull out low power balls. The Libero does not participate in the attack, cannot block and pass the ball from above while in the three-meter zone near the net.The height of the libero in professional volleyball does not exceed 190 cm. Famous players: Aleksey Verbov, Krzysztof Ignachak, Zhang Na, Ekaterina Ulanova.
Volleyball consists of the following elements: serve, reception, pass, attacking blow, block.
Produced from behind the front line. Under no circumstances should you step over the endline until the ball is tossed! The serve can be lower, upper, twisted, gliding and power in a jump. Lightest: bottom. Suitable for beginners. In this case, the ball is beaten from below with the back of the hand. It turns out a kind of “candle”. The most difficult: power in a jump. It is an element of an offensive strike, practiced by professionals or very good players. Good power delivery can only be taken from below.
There is a planning feed separately. Such a ball flies not in a straight line, but along a sinusoid, slipping out of the hands when received. Served from the spot or from a small jump. Smooth blow with a spread palm to the center of the ball.
The serve must be in the opponent’s field and be as difficult to tackle as possible.
50% of the balls are in the center of the court on the libero. Diagonal ones are also involved in the technique. The first tempo player does NOT participate in the move and the second tempo players are EXTREMELY RARE.
In professional volleyball, you can only take the ball down with a bottom hold. But in the amateur, there are often light serves that can be taken from above. Ideally, the receiver should hang the ball high to the player of the first tempo (passing) at a distance of 1 meter from the net to the 3rd zone.
Having received the ball, the player of the second pace with the top gear hangs a pass for a shot to the 2nd or 4th zone. Passing can be “cheating” – behind the back, back. Less often, the passer throws the ball over him to hit the diagonal from the 1st and 5th zones. If the diagonal hits, then he must jump BEFORE the attack line! Otherwise, the point is scored in favor of the opponent.
Side-gamers and, less often, diagonal players are involved in the attack. Pulling behind the line of attack, they make a running start and a biting blow, trying to hit the ball as hard and accurately as possible.It is the attacking blow that brings 60% of the points to the team.
Libero is not involved in offense in professional volleyball.
A well-placed block brings the team up to 40% of points in professional volleyball. The block is usually attended by sideplayers and a second-rate player. A block is placed by one, two, or – which is usually the case with professionals – by three players. The main nuance of the block: jump in time and stretch out along the net, rigidly straightening both arms. Thus, the blocker blocks the zone of his own court for the attacker, making it difficult for the attacking maneuver.
The deciding factor on the block is the player’s height. The higher it is, the better the block is.
If a passer or libero is required by the team exactly in its position, then during the transition he is simply left standing in his number. This is not penalized in amateur volleyball. In a professional transition, a transition is required and includes various transition tactics. Such as 5-1.
This combination allows you to have at least 3 attackers with 1 setter. The setter after any transition goes into the pass zone – between numbers 2 and 3. Forwards: outplayer (number 4), center blocker (zone 3), diagonal (zone 2), pipe. this scheme is the most difficult, but also the most effective due to a powerful attack that allows you to break the opponent’s block.
With the starting position on the field, the following arrangement is:
Passer in zone 1.
Wing Spikers in Zones 2 and 5.
Central blocking – zones 3 and 6.
Diagonal striker – in zone 4.
>> Read more about player roles here.
Players move clockwise with each transition, but must always return to roughly the following positions:
Everyone covers the 1st number, moving closer to the net, except for one player in the second row (5th or 6th number). After filing:
The passer goes under the net between numbers 2 and 3.
Wing spiker and center blocker go to the first lane, occupying numbers 4 and 6. The diagonal takes number 4 or stands between numbers 1 and 4.
The passer tries to stay closer to the center of the field or to be in the first line.
The rest of the players stand in a semicircle.
Placement of players on court
In this case, the following rules should not be violated:
1) Back row players standing in numbers 1, 5, 6 must not go behind front row players: 4,3,2;
2) Players cannot change the horizontal order of their lines, that is, go behind each other horizontally.
- No touching the net is the most common violation caused by improper player safety. It is important to follow this rule not only in order to win and not lose points, but also to avoid injuries on the court. In the heat of the game, you can fly into each other and severely cripple.
- It is forbidden for the player and the ball to touch the antennas above the net.
- It is forbidden to enter the enemy’s site. Just like the first point, adherence to this rule will save you from accidental game injuries.
- It is forbidden to toss the ball while serving while on the court (within the endline).
- Uncultural and offensive behavior is also discouraged.
- Back row players cannot jump attack from the front row. But if the jump and landing took place beyond the three-meter line, then this is not considered a violation.
- Block pass is prohibited.
- It is forbidden to touch the ball when it is on the opponent’s side of the field. This is a common mistake of the blocker.
- It is forbidden to hold the ball.The movement should be firm and instant.
- Although touching the ball on one side of the court is allowed no more than three times, however, when the ball bounces off the block, a block for touching is not considered. And in this case, 4 touches are allowed (3 standard + 1 block touch).

90,000 prospects for the development of competition in the electric power industry of the Far East
Publications – Electricity
The idea of creating a third price zone for the wholesale electricity market in the Far East has been discussed since the creation of the Russian energy market, but received a new impetus in connection with the development of a program for the modernization of generating capacities. Deputy General Director of IPEM Alexander Grigoriev in his comments to the magazine “Energy without Borders” assessed the prospects for creating an electricity market in the Far East.
“The creation of a new price zone will not be able to help solve the key problems of the region’s energy sector: underinvestment and a high, in comparison with the national average, price level.
Prospects for even a semblance of competitive relations in the new market look extremely vague, since almost all thermal energy belongs to DGK, hydropower belongs to RusHydro, and the market itself is extremely small: 33 billion kWh per year, which is 6 times less than in the second price zone.There are also no opportunities for overflows, as it happens in the first and second zones. A small, closed market with two players is not a place where competition arises, leading to lower prices.
One can, of course, assume that someday the third price zone will grow in volume to the second. But, for example, for consumption in it to be at least half of the current level of the UPS of Siberia (100 billion kWh) by 2050, a fantastic rate of growth of electricity consumption of 3.2% per year will be required. “
