Pre-Requisite Drills:



  • Brummie says:

    Wait for the marker to check the disc in before throwing

    Don't just run in, approach slow and low to ensure that the mark is effective

    You should aim to be able to complete this throw using 0 or 1 fake; this teaches you to quickly take on the mark and be more able to take advantage of opportunities on the break side
  • Mario O’Brien says:

    Throw using 0 or 1 fakes. This is more game realistic as it teaches the mark to read real thrower movements. If you don’t throw in 0 or 1 fakes, reset to yourself, try again
