Setup:

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.

Step 1

Image of Sideline Power Position (force middle)
  • 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.
