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
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
