Sneak peek!

This drill is only fully available to members, but here's a free teaser. Sign up now to see the rest!


A handler, A, starts with the disc in the middle of the width of the field. A reset handler, B, starts at the front of the stack, approximately 5-8m directly downfield from A. A cutter, C, stands directly behind B. Another cutter, E, stands directly behind C. The rest of the cutters line up in the stack, with the back no more than 12m from A.


D1 > A > D2 > B > D3 > C > D4 > E

Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Brummie says:

    Don't give D4 time to adjust; E's cut should come only a second after B and C have cut,

    Practice without defence to get the timing right, then add defenders,

    You can make this into a realistic game scenario by allowing A to throw to any of the cutters
