Vertical Stack with disc on trap sideline: Scenario #3

adrews

The handler with the disc can also make eye contact with the Anchor(player 3), and make a break throw to the anchor.  

Offense

Vertical Stack--disc centered--dump option 4--the Anchor

This is the last ditch option, and really happens rather infrequently.

Vertical Stack--disc centered--dump option 3--the Anchor

If player 1 cannot get the disc to the dump(player 2), then their next option is to look for the Anchor(player 3) for a reset. The Anchor has two options for where they can cut to get the disc. This is option 1.

Option 2 for the dump.

Vertical Stack--disc centered--dump option 1

This diagram is specific to just the handler cuts and not the cutters. Unless a specific play has been called, cutters should be cutting from the back of the stack. With the disc in the middle, there are four basic options for dumping or trying to reset the disc. In the center, player 1 should be looking upfield to advance the disc to the cutters for about 4 seconds. If nothing is open after stall 4, player 1 should then look for their dump(player 2).  

Offense

Cycle Ho Stack 2

Ka-ching

Communication between the cutters is key. It might help to define who "goes first" as the disc is getting pulled, or whenever really. The left side cutters kinda pair together and the right side does the same. Cycling in, to the side, out, and then back in. IMPORTANT! Remember to always clear out to the side you came from. Don't cut from one side and clear out to the other, try to stay on your side. Note that whichever side is "active" will usually be on the open side, or when a swing is made, often the break-side.

Cycle Ho Stack. Should be fairly simple to run.

Offense

Vertical Stack with disc on trap sideline: Scenario #1

adrews

When the disc is on the force/trap sideline, it is the worst position for the offense to be in, because it limits the amount of field space we can use to attack the defense and generally the only way we can advance the disc is on the open side. So we want to get the disc off the sideline as quickly as possible. We want to swing the disc all the way to the break sideline where the offense is most dangerous. Also, notice that when the disc is on the trap sideline, the stack runs a bit diagonally to open to open up open side cuts if we need them and also for the defense to have to respect that those cuts are possible. It is up to the anchor(player 3) to keep the stack positioned correctly.  

Offense

Handler Reset

Ka-ching

A simple handler reset. Really not as complicated as the steps make it sound. Basically, this should happen about everytime the handler needs a reset (other than on the sideline). The strike cut will probably get the disc most of the time, but when he doesn't, it means the defender over committed to the strike, and the break side cut should be WIDE open.

Vert Stack End Zone Isolation

This is an end zone play we will run, seeking to take advantage of the athletic and experience mis-match we will often have with our lady players.
