Steps & Diagrams
Tips & What next?
A handler, A, starts with the disc near the sideline. A reset, B, stands 5-8m away, perpendicular to the sideline.
A > B
- B starts facing A. A begins facing downfield, then initiates the play by turning to face B.
Brummie says:The aim here is to practice changing direction, and therefore this is a move aimed at deceiving a defender.
It is vital that the defender is convinced your cut backwards is a real one, so run hard and call for the disc.
Aim slightly infield of the sideline on your throw; if the receiver goes out of bounds then the opportunity for continuation is lost
