Cyclone Handler Flow by Brummie
Combine a number of options here and play with full defence; this drill will teach you how to combine cuts when running Cyclone, and help you to develop the decision making required to use Cyclone in a game.
A handler, A, starts with the disc on the sideline, marked by D1. A reset handler, B, starts 5-8m infield of A, guarded by D2. A cutter, C, starts 8-12m downfield from A, 5-8m infield. Another cutter, E, starts 10-12m downfield from A, near the middle of the width of the field. Remaining cutters form a stack in front of E.
D1 > A > D2 > B > D3 > C > E
- Fig 0. A starts on the sideline. B is the reset.
Brummie says:Initiate by having a cutter go to the open side, then bounce laterally (i.e. always look off the throw down the sideline). This gives everyone more reps of the key cutting patterns.
Begin without defenders, or encourage relaxed defence while your team builds confidence in the new patterns
Timing will come; begin slower than game pace to give larger error margins
