By using the principles Don Kelbick highlights in the video and eBook, you will have a great understanding of what it takes to have an effective zone offense, and you can apply these principles to enhance your team's zone offense immediately!

Don Kelbick has been coaching basketball for over 35 years, and through the progression of his career, he's learned and perfected the elements it takes to successfully attack a zone. He has found this continuity zone offense simplifies the game, which makes it easy to teach it quickly and effectively.

As you'll see in the video, Don Kelbick takes a group of high school players that do not know him and have never run this offense before and gets them to run it effectively in the short time span that he had making this video. That should give you the confidence that your team can run this in no time!

This video and eBook is for any coach that wants their team to be able to adequately beat a zone defense.

What You'll Get in this Video and eBook


Coach Kelbick gives you an introduction to his continuity zone and explains:

  • What all successful zone offenses have in common
  • The importance skill development plays in your zone offense
  • Putting players in a position to be successful

Chapter 1 - Elements of Zone Offense

In chapter 1, Coach Kelbick explains how over the course of his coaching career, he's seen what works and does not work with zone attacks. He explains the four elements that all successful zone offenses have, and why they are a threat to the defense.

Chapter 2 - Zone Continuity

In the video, Coach Kelbick uses one particular pattern that he uses to attack all zone defenses. Since it is a continuity offense, that means that the offense will repeat the same pattern of cuts every time the ball changes sides of the floor. In this chapter, he highlights:

  • The initial offensive alignment
  • Different ways the offense can be initiated
  • The cuts players make when the ball goes to certain spots on the floor
  • The positions players should be in to put the defense at a disadvantage

Chapter 3 - Attacking the 2-3 Zone

In chapter 3, Coach Kelbick highlights the fact that in order for your offense to be successful, your players must understand how the zone defense works and what the defense is trying to accomplish. He notes that what works against a 2-3 zone, may not work against a 1-2-2 unless your players make the appropriate adjustments.

When attacking a 2-3 zone, Coach Kelbick notes that your team's initial alignment should put players where the defenders in the zone must make coverage decisions. In this chapter, he emphasizes where your players should go when the ball goes to certain spots on the floor to weaken the 2-3 zone.

Chapter 4 - Attacking the 1-2-2 Zone

Just like attacking the 2-3 zone, your players must understand how a 1-2-2 defense works so that they can identify areas of indecision for the defense. In this chapter, Coach Kelbick shows how to expose a 1-2-2 defense and where the ball needs to go to emphasize the defense's weaknesses.

Chapter 5 - Attacking the 1-3-1 Zone

In this chapter, Coach Kelbick first shows how a 1-3-1 rotates and the initial alignment your offense should start with when going against the defense. He then highlights where the ball should and should not go against this defense and how to attack its weaknesses.

Chapter 6 - Adjustments Against Trapping Zones

In chapter 6, Coach Kelbick highlights the simple adjustments that your offense can make when a half-court zone defense occasionally traps the ball. In this chapter, he talks about:

  • Maintaining the important elements of a zone offense
  • The weakest part of any trapping zone
  • Maintaining discipline against the trap
  • The different types of trapping zones you may see

Closing Thoughts

As the video winds down, Coach Kelbick gives you his closing thoughts on his continuity zone offense. He notes that since this is not his team, you're able to see the players go through the actual learning process, which should put your mind at ease that these concepts can be simple to teach to your team.

36 Page Supplemental eBook

For your convenience, we have documented some of the key concepts, implementation steps, and common questions from the Don Kelbick’s Zone Offense Video.

The PDF eBook is 36 pages.

Concepts & Principles That Can Be Applied to Any Offense

In the video, you'll be presented with dozens of zone offense concepts and principles. These are universal principles that apply to all types of zone offenses... including motion, continuity, and called play.

The purpose of this video is to arm you with concepts that are effective to beat all types of zones. This presentation will include one of Don's favorite continuity patterns, but the value in what you see is not necessarily found only in that pattern. We hope that after watching this video, and reading through the information, you will gain knowledge that will benefit you whatever zone attack you choose to run.

Entries to Distort the Zone

One of the best ways to attack a zone is to "distort" it immediately. This gets the defense "chasing"" and in recovery mode during the entire possession.

Coach Kelbick shows you entries that will immediately distort a zone. He walks through each situation and shows exactly how to distort each type of zone defense.

Benefits of Coach Kelbick's Zone Offense

1) Works against ALL types of zone defenses

The continuity presented is simple, yet very effective. It works against ALL types of zone defenses. In the video, you learn exactly how to attack and score against:

  • 2-3 zone defense
  • 1-2-2 zone defense
  • 1-2-2 drop zone defense
  • 1-3-1 zone defense

2) Simple Concepts to Teach

Installing any type of new offense can be worrisome for coaches because you aren't sure how your players will adapt. Coach Kelbick puts your mind at ease with this system, as all of the players used in this video had never played with each other or for Coach Kelbick before. However, by the end of the video, you're able to see the players efficiently and effectively beating zone defenses with Coach Kelbick's continuity zone offense. This should put your mind at ease that the offense is simple to install.

3) Flexible - Works for Different Types of Personnel

Whether you have a team full of quick guards, or a team full of bigs, Coach Kelbick's zone continuity offense will work for any type of personnel that you have on the floor. As long as you have five guys that understand the principles of the offense, you will leave defenses scrambling to cover you.

4) It Makes Defenses Work Hard

Often times, teams will play a zone defense because their kids are lazy and they're able to stand around more in a zone. That is not the case against this zone offense, as Coach Kelbick's offense attacks the weak areas of the zone defense, so the defenses have to work harder to cover you.

5) It Wins Games

The bottom line is that this continuity offense will win you games. Coach Kelbick has coached at all levels for 30 years - and this continuity offense against zones has been proven to work for him time and time again.

Coach Kelbick presents a number of ideas through his continuity that will help coaches have a better understanding of how to attack zone defenses. His plan is well thought out and is based on concepts that can easily be adapted to any zone based attack that coaches currently use. In addition, if a coach is looking for a comprehensive plan to attack any zone defense, the ideas and drills that are presented in this video can stand alone as the basis of a highly effective zone offense.

Overall, the products that are available through Breakthrough Basketball are outstanding. I have a number of their videos and printed materials from a variety of presenters and I have found each to be extremely informative. The speakers/authors do a tremendous job of sharing their ideas because each coach is able to identify what he wants to do, how he wants to do it, and why he wants to do it. The materials from Breakthrough Basketball are first class and I would recommend them to anyone interested in increasing their knowledge of how to coach basketball.

I always enjoy Coach Kelbick's videos because he presents concepts about basketball rather than a do this, don't do that style of teaching. I picked up some useful ideas on zone offense.

The video is well structured, clear and concise. Don Keltic walks viewers through a step-by-step progression that first teaches his continuity zone offense and then demonstrates how the offense can be flexed to attack different zone defenses. The offense is easy to learn and is built around basic and easy to understand principles. The players who demonstrate the offense are learning the offense for the first time validating how quickly players can learn the offensive concepts.

FANTASTIC!!! This is an exceptional video that has immediately boosted my teams confidence versus any zone defense. I watched the video first in its entirety then rewatched to stop and take notes. I own one other Kelbick video and this viewing method has helped me understand his coaching philosophy easier. He is a great teacher who speaks clear and with confidence. I highly recommend this video to any coach who is learning how to attack zone defenses as well as learn how others may attack their own zone defense (if used) as well.

This was just what I was looking for. It’s well taught and easy to understand. It’s a well planned attack for just about any conventional zone defense.
We’ll incorporate many of the concepts learned in this presentation.

I love the video, Don explanation on keeping a zone constantly moving which keeps it off balance and the shot coming from opposite the ball was good. The distortion of the zone is definitely what you look to do. Great video.

Very easy to follow and seems easy to implement! I am very excited to use this during the upcoming season...having met and worked with Don Kelbick I know it will work like a charm. I have learned so much from him and I love how we share the same philosophy, that it's best to keep things simple!

This past season was my first as Head Varsity Boys Coach, and I was looking for an offense to run that would cause my guys to think and react...instead of being robots on the court. I implemented this offense and we picked apart almost every zone offense we faced. Towards the end of the season it got to the point that every time we ran this, we scored by either a wide open three or a back door play of some sort. We finished 16-4 on the season and won our first conference championship in seven years. Thank you Coach Don, looking forward to getting a hold of the other products here at Breakthrough!

Don never disappoints. His concepts are simple and straightforward and he sticks to the philosophy of teaching kids how to become basketball players and not just run plays.

I picked up several tips from this video and I think my zone offense arsenal will be better off thanks to what I was able to learn from the video and accompanying eBook.

This offensive system is excellent. We implemented it on our JV team and, during a scrimmage against our varsity, we able to score at will. And that was the day after we learned it. The varsity no runs it as their zone offense as well. Our JV is 7-2 so far this season and every team we've played that comes out in a zone quickly switches to man-to -man.
