Sneak peek!

This drill is only fully available to members, but here's a free teaser. Sign up now to see the rest!

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.

Rotation:

A > D1 > B > D2 > C > D3

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.

Pre-Requisite Drills:

Tips:

  • 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
