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


A handler, A, stands near the middle of the field marked by D1 who applies a one-way mark. A reset, B, stands level with the disc, 5-8m away from A, guarded by D2. Cutters C and E stand 8-10m downfield of A as though in a horizontal stack.


D1 > A > D2 > B > C > E

  • Brummie says:

    B should delay their movement until C is just about to catch the disc; C should have enough time to catch, set themselves and throw without rushing. If B cuts too early, they will miss the opportunity.

    E will need to time their cut differently for the different continuation options; see Timing Cuts
