Ultimate Drill Demonstration

Description

  • Get into groups of 4, forming a small square approximately 3m per side with 1 disc for each group
  • Make sure that for each pass, the thrower & receiver are facing each other before the throwing motion begins.
  • Players should not move their feet after catching except to pivot

Coaching points

  • Watch the disc all the way into your hands
  • Make sure you pivot; remember that you pivot leg is opposite to the throwing arm (left leg pivot = right handed thrower. Right leg pivot = left handed thrower)
  • Practice calling the name of the person that you’re about to throw the disc to before every pass
  • Aim to get your body behind the disc. Increases likelihood of catching. If the disc is high, jump to get your chest behind it. If the disc is low, try kneeling before the catch.

Progression

  • Try going around in both directions; clockwise and anti-clockwise
  • Start close enough to each other that everyone is comfortable with the throws. If your group is comfortable completing several rotations in both directions, why not make the square bigger?
