Tips:

  • Brummie says:

    This is a great drill to practice decisive cutting and communication with a thrower in a simple setting. While the drill only requires a single pass, there are a multitude of options; you can see why a single, isolated defender has little chance of being able to prevent the disc moving, even in a small area

    Once you have got the basics down, it is best to constrain the drill by marking out a maximum area for the cutter to work in; this makes it far more realistic and forces the thrower to react quickly to use the available space

    Typically, cutters only get 5 seconds maximum to move the disc in a game, so as you get better, try also constraining the time you allow each pair.

    Only a maximum of one change of direction is shown here, but there is no reason why you cannot make more changes of direction; just apply the same decision making.
