Game – Tram Line by Dominick Smyth
Extra rules in a match to encourage marking a thrower in order to limit their options and to encourage throwers and receivers to use space available.
Pitch: 24m x 18m x 6m.
No defenders are allowed inside tram line until someone on offense is holding disc in tram area. Then, 1 defender is allowed in tram area.
As any game, after a score play stops and teams change ends.
- Play a game as normal with tram line rule.
Dominick Smyth says:
Spend time forcing the throwers away from and towards the tram line to find out which is more effective.
Encourage defenders to recognise which direction makes things easier or harder for them and for the offence.
By forcing throwers towards one area of the field, we are encouraging the offence to move into that space. This is the cornerstone of team defensive strategy. We call the area behind the force "the break side" and the other side of the field "the open side".
