Start with two offensive handlers, A and B, lined up on the endzone line along with a cutter, C. A defender, D1, should line up opposite them level with the brick mark


A > B > C > D1

Step 1

  • B simulates catching the pull; this is the signal for D1 to chase after A
  • This is best done by having B throw the disc up to themselves, or by an audible


  • Brummie says:

    The exact distance that the defender starts away from the offence isn’t important; we are trying to simulate receiving a pull.

    You'll know you're doing this well if A has a simple, uncontested throw to C

    If D1 over-commits then there’s always the possibility of A running straight past them for a deep throw; keep the defender on their toes!

    To make this more difficult, add a second defender and/or chase harder!
