Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Dominick Smyth says:

    Look to throw to the space the person is moving to, not where they are at time of release.

    The receivers movement will highlight if throws are curving sideways so effort required to keep throws flat.

    Receivers should wait until thrower is ready to throw so as to avoid reaching the cone and having to stand and wait.
