4) 3-3 Zone Ride

  • Divide the field in thirds
  • Middies cover restraining line to Midfield in their zone
  • Attack cover Box to the restraining line in their zone
  • Middies must stay in front of their opponent near midfield.  LSM plays Middle
  • Ball-Side Attack pressures ball, others are at top of Box protecting “Zone”, while sliding help side. 
  • Off Ball attack slide towards ball, leaving long pass for opposing Defense
  • Players help “On a string”
  • When the ball is behind you and your man is downfield of you pursue the ball with reckless abandon seeking to force the playback into the middle of the field. 
  • Worst case they redirect to your guy and you have to pivot and find or switch.... but no way you give up a break.
