More Keepdisc Variations!

This month we gathered together some footage from a few sessions where we ran some of our favourite keepdisc variations. These rulesets all help with positioning and spacing of the players off the disc, as well as working on core throwing, catching, and decision making skills.

Patterns of Play – Continuation after Open Unders

In this set of drills we’re looking at patterns of play likely to follow from an open under pass. First the most classic cyclical isolation, then finding a power position from a backwards pass to dump, and then finding power position from an open under.

Sliding Puzzle Drill / Space Session Plan

This exercise trains players ability to recognise space, to create space for each other, to communicate / cooperate with teammates, and to use space on the field. It’s a flexible drill so I talk about many additions, modifications, and keepdisc game conditions which can be used to run a full session on Space.

Run’n’Gun Training Session

Following on from Tobe Decraene’s Run’n’Gun Loophole video, this training session covers a new Run’n’Gun drill by Felix, a variety of warm-up exercises and throwing exercises, and details on a modified game to provide more opportunities and motivation for players to try the run’n’gun move in-game.

Keepdisc Zombies

This is a fun variation of Keepdisc which works for 6-14 players and involves players changing from offence to defence when they turn over. Full video.

Double Dribble Gauntlet Drill

This drill is a short minigame where pairs of players compete. The goal of the attackers is to use the positional advantage they have by double dribbling the disc towards the endzone whilst maintaining flow. The goal of the defenders is to stop flow and prevent the attackers from scoring. Full video available to training tier patrons.

Throw’n’go Mechanics Training w/TobuFitness

This training video dives deep into exercises that can help improve your ability to do the “Throw and Go”, an integral part of dribbling or a small-ball style offense. We partnered with Justin Shelby from TOBU Fitness, an Ultimate Frisbee-specific strength and conditioning coach, who breaks down the specific joint and muscle movements needed to perform the “Throw and Go” at an elite level.

Throw’n’go Gate – Basic Tekkers Drill

This is a simple drill to work on fundamental throw’n’go technique, suitable for players of all experience levels.
This video is slightly different to usual as there are no edits – you see the full explanation, execution, and group review of the exercise. Full video available for training tier patrons.

Charmaine’s Drill (Flow version)

This drill puts the spotlight on one player at a time. First they catch & throw from a feeder, passing to every player cutting under, then they bounce discs back to every player as they give-go attack downfield.
The huck extension adds a long throw to the end of the drill, after the players are set up perfectly in power position by the spotlighted player, who is bouncing the disc back to them. Full video available for Training Tier patrons.
