  • Scheme 1:
  • 1. Open Side
  • 2. Deep
  • 3. Break Side
  • This is probably the most effective and common defence. Preventing the open side under throw is vital otherwise your opponent will just take easy throws all the way downfield.
  • Downfield, you should position your body between your offender and the disc to prevent them coming under, but facing them so you are able to instantly run deep and contest deep throws.
