Sprint all the way through the catch, rather than slowing down to catch. While catching at speed is a more difficult than when standing still, it is an important skill to learn in order to prevent defenders from running past and getting a block.
Add a defender to provide a realistic mark; this is shown as a faded block on the diagrams.
A should make it clear if the disc is not coming; a clearly visible fake (or audible) signals that the long throw is not coming and B should cut underneath; this also ensures that B is looking at the thrower.
For a more game-like drill that will push your limits, try Break to a Point
Use this drill to practice:
A handler, A, starts with the disc in the middle of the field, marked by D1. A cutter, B, stands 10m downfield, facing A.
- D1 checks the disc in, and B then cuts away for 5-10m
