We'll probably run a lot zone in order to maximize our strengths in
different pre-assigned roles, and minimize physical mismatches in
Open play. These are the two we are practicing:
- Clam (aka a
Poachy Cup): will probably be our most common
zone. Pablo has already practiced with many of you for at

and not all in a row. The roles are the same as in Clam,
except Clamidia becomes a Short Deep, interfacing between the
deep and the second 3 cut defenders.
