A handler, A, starts with the disc in the middle of the field.  A cutter, B, stands 5m downfield and in the middle of the width of the field, facing A.   A defender, D1, starts 15m away.


A > B > D1

Step 1

  • B moves downfield into a position directly in front of A as they are about to catch the pull

Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Brummie says:

    If B cuts hard directly towards D1, then B might be able to run straight past them for an even bigger lead pass. Most defenders will therefore be wary of this threat; running at them causes them to slow down, making it more likely that you will be able to get open

    This is best practiced when receiving a pull; for quicker repetitions, begin D1 halfway down the field

    We've shown this drill in the context of receiving a pull, but it can also be used by a handler-led offence, particularly when players behind the disc are trying to get involved in the play but are being backed; see the video example
