Being able to throw into space for a receiver to run onto is critical for many drills in ultimate; this is the most simple drill to get started

A handler, A, starts with the disc and is stood at the front of a stack. A cutter, B, stands 2-10m away, in a stack parallel to the sideline.
A > B
- B takes a few steps directly towards A; this movement is designed to mimic the movement required to move a defender
- B then turns sharply to run at a 60 degree angle downfield; A aims to throw the pass so that it sits in B’s path, and away from the sideline
Aim for the disc to sit in space rather than trying to hit the receiver perfectly in stride; this increases the error margin
You can slowly but surely increase the throwing distance to transition into "huck" drills (i.e. long throws)
