Defense is area where the kids of young ages show the quickest improvement (usually a few weeks). I believe that at that age man-to-man is the best choice for the kids development. The basic man-to-man concepts are easy to teach at that age and you get the kids to be aggressive.
I will say that a zone would likely give you better rebounding at a young age (exactly the opposite of the older kids) due to the fact that the kids are close to the rim and outside shooting is poor overall for 9 years so you don't get hurt much from outside shooters.
