A themed game playing Hasami defence
A thrower, A, stands 10m from the sideline marked by D1, who can apply any mark. Two other handlers, B and C, are spread across the field, guarded by D2 and D3 respectively.
Four cutters, E, F, G and H stand 10m deep from A, and approximately 8m apart, spread across the width of the field. Four defenders, D4, D5, D6 and D7, “sandwich” the cutters, with D4 and D5 stood between the cutters and the disc, facing D6 and D7. D6 and D7 stand deep of both cutters, facing the disc.
Depending on your team, but try to give everyone a chance to do everything so they understand what is required.
- Offence should come together and work out what they are going to do first.
- Start with the disc on the goal line in the middle. The objective is to contain the initial plays, not necessarily get a block. Just make life difficult.
- If the offence are flowing, or if the defence gets a block, go back and start again. The aim is to get lots of reps practicing Hasami.
