Preventing the reset to a dump/swing when trapping a team on the sideline can be highly effective. Here we look at how marking as a defensive pair can be even more effective.

Setup:

A handler, A, starts with the disc near the sideline. D1 puts on a line-trap force. In this example, D1’s left hand is the ‘force’ hand (nothing gets passed it), while the right hand is the ‘pressure’ hand. A reset, B, stands 5-8m away, perpendicular to the sideline, facing A, marked by D2.

Rotation:

D1 > A > D2 > B

    Preventing the reset to a dump/swing when trapping a team on the sideline can be highly effective. However most good handlers can reset effectively. While there are tactics for making the up-line cut difficult (see Stopping the up line cut), here we look at how marking as a defensive pair can be more effective.

    Rather than asking the reset defender to cover both the up-line cut AND the sideline dump/wrinkle, we will give the two defenders (one marking the disc, one marking the reset dump) one job each.
