A thrower, A, starts with the disc. 1st receiver, B, sets up 10-15m in front of thrower and slightly to one side (diagram shows left side so as to favour a backhand throw). 2nd receiver, C, sets up another 10-15m away and slightly to the opposite side of the thrower.


A > B > C

Step 1

  • On a given signal, B moves across the playing area.


  • Dominick Smyth says:

    Encourage B and C to acknowledge each other before they start moving. C is only able to get the disc if B is willing to move out of the space. It is important that players recognise this effort by their teammates.
