  • Brummie says:

    This drill is best for practicing swinging quickly while not using much space

    Aim to catch, pivot and throw as quickly as possible while ensuring each throw is accurate; this is best achieved by pivoting, staying low and throwing hard, rather than trying to catch and release quickly without ensuring the disc has spin. The further apart the players are, the more important this is.
