Sideline Vertical stack patterns by Brett Matzuka and Goose Helton
Chicago Machine's Brett & Goose bring together multiple cutting options to show the power of the vertical stack formation
A handler, A, starts with the disc on the sideline marked by D1. A reset, B, starts 3-8m infield of A, perpendicular to the sideline, and guarded by D2. A cutter, E, starts at the back of a vertical stack, 10-12m away from A, and the remaining players in the vertical stack are angled away from the sideline with the front player, C, no closer than 5m from A.
D1 > A > D2 > B > C > E > F
- If B is open for the reset Go to step 8
- Otherwise Go to step 2
Goose Helton says:
Timing cuts is everything here. Be on your toes and cut hard! You're aiming to get open just before the thrower catches, so if you need to lose your defender, do that first.
Brett Matzuka says:
Always, always, always throw the around continuation after catching the dump. Don't look it off and try to throw the inside throw, it doesn't work and I'll get angry and shout at you :-)
