Sideline Power Position (force middle) by Brummie
The force middle defence can make teams swing the disc a lot; here, the handlers reset the disc into an area not defended to generate power position
A handler, A, starts with the disc near the sideline, marked by D1 who applies a straight-up mark. A reset, B, stands 5-10m infield, guarded by D2 who stands between A and B.
A > D1 > B > D2 > C > D3
- A initiates the drill by turning to look at B
- B then cuts directly upfield
- Do not attack the sideline; this space is to the break side of the field and is therefore a more difficult throw. We also want to get the disc back to the centre of the field where there are typically more throwing options.
- A throws the disc into space for B to run onto.
Brummie says:Be wary of throwing too far upfield into poaches
Ideally, the disc would be caught near the middle of the width of the field; try to at least get the disc wider than D2. See Sideline Resets
Instead of having B make a cut, this reset can be thrower-led. See Thrower-led, aka “The German”
Note that the continuation cut could go to either side of the field
