Ice Hockey Diagram — Defensive Strategy — Neutral Zone Trap

In ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can produce ice hockey diagrams of any complexity for any presentaion needs, using a combination of tools. To adopt the sample below for presentation needs place positions and arrows onto different layers of your document and then make them visible one by one during a presentation.
"The neutral zone trap (often referred to as simply the trap) is a defensive strategy used in ice hockey to prevent an opposing team from proceeding through the neutral zone (the area between the blue lines) to force turnovers. The strategy is generally used to level the playing field for teams that are not as offensively talented as their opponents, although the trap can also be used by teams simply looking to protect a lead late in the game. The trap was innovated by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1920s and 1930s, and more recently in the mid to late 1990s and early 2000s by the New Jersey Devils." [Neutral zone trap. Wikipedia]

Ice Hockey Diagram — Entering Offensive Zone Drill

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with the Ice Hockey Solution allows you to draw professional looking ice hockey diagrams in minutes. You can easily customize existing samples or produce you own ones.
"The blue lines divide the rink into three zones. The central zone is called the neutral zone or simply centre ice. The generic term for the outer zones is end zones, but they are more commonly referred to by terms relative to each team. The end zone in which a team is trying to score is called the attacking zone or offensive zone; the end zone in which the team's own goal net is located is called the defending zone or defensive zone.
The blue line is considered part of whichever zone the puck is in. Therefore, if the puck is in the neutral zone, the blue line is part of the neutral zone. It must completely cross the blue line to be considered in the end zone. Once the puck is in the end zone, the blue line becomes part of that end zone. The puck must now completely cross the blue line in the other direction to be considered in the neutral zone again." [Ice hockey rink. Wikipedia]

Ice Hockey Rink Dimensions

Meeting ice hockey rules one should learn ice hockey rink terms, lines, zones etc. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is an advanced drawing software that allows you produce ice hockey rink depiction of any complexity, from simple sketch drawing to detailed one as on example below.
"A football pitch (also known as a football field or soccer field) is the playing surface for the game of football made of turf. Its dimensions and markings are defined by Law 1 of the Laws of the Game, "The Field of Play".
All line markings on the pitch form part of the area which they define. For example, a ball on or above the touchline is still on the field of play; a ball on the line of the goal area is in the goal area; and a foul committed over the 16.5-metre (18-yard) line has occurred in the penalty area. Therefore a ball must completely cross the touchline to be out of play, and a ball must wholly cross the goal line (between the goal posts) before a goal is scored; if any part of the ball is still on or above the line, the ball is still in play.
The field descriptions that apply to adult matches are described below. Note that due to the original formulation of the Laws in England and the early supremacy of the four British football associations within IFAB, the standard dimensions of a football pitch were originally expressed in imperial units. The Laws now express dimensions with approximate metric equivalents (followed by traditional units in brackets), but use of the imperial units remains common in some countries, especially in the United Kingdom."

The vector stencils library "Road signs" contains 58 symbols of road signs for labeling the road and route maps, directional and transit maps, street and locator maps.
"Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side of or above roads to give instructions or provide information to road users.
... many countries have adopted pictorial signs or otherwise simplified and standardized their signs to overcome language barriers, and enhance traffic safety. Such pictorial signs use symbols (often silhouettes) in place of words and are usually based on international protocols. Such signs were first developed in Europe, and have been adopted by most countries to varying degrees." [Traffic sign. Wikipedia]

Ice Hockey Offside Diagram

"Offsides" is a very basic sports term, which can be very hard to explain to a novice. The fundamental concepts in sports can be extremely difficult to convey without a drawing, that's why we included an Offsides Sample in the Hockey solution. Explaining with ConceptDraw in your playbook is easier than ever before!

"Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules. It has been a part of the official program of the Summer Olympic Games since 1964. ...
The court dimensions.
A volleyball court is 18 m (59 ft) long and 9 m (29.5 ft) wide, divided into 9 m × 9 m halves by a one-meter (40-inch) wide net. The top of the net is 2.43 m (8 ft 0 in) above the center of the court for men's competition, and 2.24 m (7 ft 4 in) for women's competition, varied for veterans and junior competitions.
The minimum height clearance for indoor volleyball courts is 7 m (23 ft), although a clearance of 8 m (26 ft) is recommended.
A line 3 m (9.84 ft) from and parallel to the net is considered the "attack line". This "3 meter" (or "10-foot") line divides the court into "back row" and "front row" areas (also back court and front court). These are in turn divided into 3 areas each: these are numbered as follows, starting from area "1", which is the position of the serving player.
After a team gains the serve (also known as siding out), its members must rotate in a clockwise direction, with the player previously in area "2" moving to area "1" and so on, with the player from area "1" moving to area "6".
The team courts are surrounded by an area called the free zone which is a minimum of 3 meters wide and which the players may enter and play within after the service of the ball. All lines denoting the boundaries of the team court and the attack zone are drawn or painted within the dimensions of the area and are therefore a part of the court or zone. If a ball comes in contact with the line, the ball is considered to be "in". An antenna is placed on each side of the net perpendicular to the sideline and is a vertical extension of the side boundary of the court. A ball passing over the net must pass completely between the antennae (or their theoretical extensions to the ceiling) without contacting them." [Volleyball. Wikipedia]
