  • A throws straight away as B cuts diagonally to intercept it

Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Brummie says:

    Throw a straight, flat throw that quickly gets in front of the receiver and slows down; this enables the receiver to see the disc and chase it down

    Adding a defender onto B forces more realistic throws. Any throws that hang or are misread will likely lead to a contest between defender and receiver; this is what you want to avoid!
