Q

"When is a good time to play a zone defense?"

A
When you have a weak defender, play zone. Mix up your coverage to keep the offense honest.

A
I'm against zone coverage because it's hardly used at higher levels of the game, so I feel like it is used by youth coaches as an easy way out of the hard work it takes to teach effective, one on one defense. Push your kids to learn proper defensive skills, it'll help them in the long run.
