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


A handler, B, starts with the disc in the middle of the field. A defender, D2, applies a straight up mark. A reset, A, starts around 5-10m from A, wider and slightly behind. A is guarded by D1, who stands upfield. A continuation cutter, C, starts a further 10m downfield.


A > D1 > B > D2 > C

Step 1

Image of Chisel
  • A cuts up field, aiming for a position directly ahead of B
  • B pivots infield and throws a short pass for A to run onto Lead Pass (FM)


  • Brummie says:

    The first diagram shows the pass going forwards, but it can be thrown earlier in the cut, i.e. laterally or even slightly away from the mark; A’s momentum will bring them upfield into power position.
