Sneak peek!

This drill is only fully available to members, but here's a free teaser. Sign up now to see the rest!


A handler, A, is guarded by D1 who applies a one-way mark. A reset, B, stands 5-10m downfield of A, guarded by D2. A cutter, E, stands 2-3m behind B, with a stack forming behind them. A continuation cutter, C, stands at the back of the stack.


D1 > A > D2 > B > E > C

Step 1

Image of 3H Cutting
  • Take note of the extra separation that B has from the other players in the stack.
  • The first option is to look for a possible ‘German’ throw to B on the break side
  • If the around channel is available, Go to step 2
  • If the inside channel is available, Go to step 3
  • Otherwise, Go to step 4


  • Brummie says:

    The act of faking the German can often make the next options easier by moving the marker and downfield defenders; don’t skip this step, even if you're not comfortable with throwing them. Remember that the marker can't see what's behind them :-)
