My team has a good post player, a solid guard who can hit some pull up jumpers, and a small forward who can penetrate and finish in a 1 on 1 situation. Our point guard and big forward are not so great. We usually play against 2-3 zone defense.
I need some suggestions on which set play that suits our team. You guys can just post links below and maybe give some brief introduction. I can do the readings by myself.

Thanks!

I'm not big on running many set plays, especially with younger kids. It takes a lot of time to teach plays. I like running motion and teaching them how to play. Or maybe pick a simple continuity offense and teach them how to read the defense from that. And spend most of the time on fundamental skills.

Against a 2-3 zone dense, we usually put players in gaps. Put your best play maker in the middle and your post player in short corner or mid post. Have them work together finding seams and getting open. The 3 perimeter players can shallow cut, pass fake, drive, etc. Just moving the ball and playing.

For a quick hitter you can try something like Pitt against zone.

And there are many other zone plays to choose from here if you want to go that route.
