A handler, A, is guarded by D1 who applies a one-way mark. A reset, B, stands 5-10m downfield of A, guarded by D2. A third handler, C, stands 5-8m further across the field. A continuation cutter, E, stands 8-12m downfield towards the middle of the width of the field.


A > D1 > B > D2 > C > D3 > E

  • Brummie says:

    Timing and positioning is everything with handler movement; take every advantage you're given

    While some teams prefer to run everything through their handlers, the biggest thing you gain from running a weave is generating simple continuation throws downfield. So get into the habit of always looking for a continuation throw after every catch.
