Picking up players – Body positioningby Annie Glasspool
Learn not only how to effectively pick up new offensive threats, but maintain your body position to stop them getting the disc
Steps & Diagrams
Tips & What next?
Running the drill several times, means players can try different body positions that allow them to be aware of the disc and the cutters. In a final run through, allow a player to act as the sideline, and shout "swing" when the disc moves, emphasising how much easier awareness is with verbal help.
Use this drill to practice:
D1 begins in a 5m box of cones.
Player X holds the disc at one corner cone, player Y stands an the adjacent cone.
Remaining players (cutters A, B, C …) form stacks on two corner cones opposite players X and Y.
