Step 1

  • B starts facing A. A begins facing downfield, then initiates the play by turning to face B.

Pre-Requisite Drills:

None

Tips:

  • 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
