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.

3v1 Cone Defence Extensions

After last month’s 3v1 video blew the doors open on a new way of training defence, we’ve tried to expand on the exercise by changing some of the variables. We’re going to look at 3 extensions to the original exercise, with different numbers of players, cones, and discs added. Full video available for Training Tier patrons.

Cone Defence Reaction Game

This is a quick, fun, and easy-to-set-up game gets players moving and reacting to each other, helping develop defensive teamwork and fundamental movement skills. Full video available for Training Tier patrons.

Multizone Keepdisc

This exercise is similar to Keepdisc, but with the addition of multiple scoring zones marked by different coloured cones, which the offence transitions between attacking. A great exercise to run at the end of a warm-up / keepdisc to aid with the transition into full blown Ultimate. Full video available to Training Tier patrons.

This exercise encourages players to be aggressive with their moves, generating quick forward movement / penetration and scoring opportunities. Full video available for Training Tier patrons.
