Tips:

  • 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.
  • Brummie says:

    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".
