Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Brummie says:

    Try to get a lot of curve on this throw; you'll want it to go out nice and wide so it doesn't come in over the receiver's head.

    When cutting for this, just keep running and trust that the thrower has done the right thing. A rookie mistake is to stop running if you lose sight of the disc; don't. There is a period of time when you won't be able to see it. Keep running, keep looking, and the disc *should* reappear! Keep your eye on the disc once you've spotted it.

    That said, be prepared to adjust your cut to make the catch easy - as you would with any leading throw.
