So, BR is supporting MM now? Does that mean they've kissed and made up? Aww, that's sweet.

Have seen MM's team run zone D on multiple occasions. What a hypocrite.

Latest MM quote "The truly great youth sports programs don't "play to win the game" they play to develop the player. In many cases the winning comes along."

More BS since MM got owned today on both sides of the field.
Zone press requires more athleticism and forces each player to move in sync. “Zone” means you are playing good defense in whichever “zone” that you happen to be in.You also MUST be able to play good man-to-man defense in order to be able to play a zone defense. That’s both on and off ball. If you can’t you are going to get beat for goals all over the place.

It's what you do when you don't have a solid line of defenders also. At this age, there aren't a slew of shooters who are going to beat a soft zone with a shot from just inside the restraining box. It is a great way to win games and cover up for defensive deficiencies, but MM is right that it doesn't develop young players. 1 goal / game in championship vs. Hawks and DBs for 88+3 sounds like poor coaching despite his point about DBs zone.

Do the truly great youth sports programs also f-bomb and berate their young players MM?

That never happened, but the API coach did get tossed from youth lacrosse game. See you at Hawks tryouts.

How does it not develop players? High schools and colleges don't run zone? Zone increases their IQ better than man.

If you play zone in youth lacrosse, you have completely given up on teaching the defensive skills that kids will need to play high school lacrosse. If your kid is on a team that plays zone, your kid is not being taught and you should look for a new home.

That's a ridiculous statement.

Agreed. This is sour grapes from coaches who weren't ready for zone. All HS and College teams run zone. It's increasing IQ. Need to know how to play both!
