A simple drill for illustrating how to make vertical cuts directly to and away from the disc from a horizontal stack. Includes an under cut, with a dump back to the handler, and then a deep cut from the same cutter
L-Cut with a partner. Focus on your edge control Outside in backhand and forehand, Inside out backhand and forehand. low side of disc should fall towards the cutter running onto it. Reset with Dumps.
Handler, Ace, Downfield Cutter. Ace Starts right in front of cutter. runs up to the downfield cutter to initiate the downfield cut. Ace cuts left or right. The downfield cutter runs and Ace puts it into space for the downfield cutter to run onto.
Trapped on the break-side. stall is 3/4 and you’re looking to bounce the disc after taking one look upfield. Dump is still 45 behind keeping the same theme of being negative when on the fore-side. Goal is to stay on the break side. If offense stalls or defense sets up, swing to change angle of attack. This play is representing the Carolina system of resets.
This is what will happen when we play Hori :) ** Handlers note that after you throw forward, let the cutters play. DONT ask for the disc back for the short throws. When def force forehand, then openside is 7 , breakside is 4. When def force backhand, then openside is 4 , breakside is 7. When disc in the middle, open side cut first. When disc in openside, openside cut first. when disc in breakside, breakside can cut 1st. ( if handlers/robin call ice, means handler play until like disc in middle/open side. judge for urself ) - will try this as we continue. If catch around openside, 6 can go deep then come in OR 6 go deep then nvr come back then 5 can go. ( this is continuation cuts where yall can play urself )
