Textbook example of playing a sideline trap in horizontal stack by Fury

Setup:

A handler, A, starts near the sideline marked by D1. A reset, B, stands approximately 5m infield, guarded by D2. A third handler, C, stands near the middle of the field, approximately 18m from the disc, guarded by D3. A downfield receiver, E, stands 8-12m downfield of C.

Rotation:

D1 > A > D2 > B > D3 > C > E

  • This setup shows a typical sideline reset scenario in horizontal stack, where A, B and C are offensive handlers marked by defenders D1, D2 and D3 respectively. E is a downfield receiver who is positioned in this drill to provide a continuation throw once the disc is reset; in a game, this cut could come from a variety of positions depending on downfield player movement.
