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. Full video available to Training Tier patrons.

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.

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.

Grid Game

Here’s a good game to expand your offence, encouraging your players to look for bigger throws to bigger spaces, and to use the space effectively by spreading out whilst staying active. Video available to 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.

10 Second Attack

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.

Rondo (2-post) Training Exercise

This possession exercise practices 1v1 and 2v2 situations with extra support from posts (or bouncers) on offence. It’s inspired by the “Rondo” football exercises which Johan Cryff brought to Barcelona – he said “Everything that goes on in a match, except shooting, you can do in a rondo”. Rondos are said to improve player decision making, coordination, team play, creativity, competitiveness, and physical conditioning. Full video here (Training Tier patrons).

Travis Norsen – Keepaway

Traditional scripted drills don’t involve much decision-making and hence don’t give players much of an opportunity to learn, through creative trial-and-error, game-realistic ways to pivot, throw, find space, create space, and attack space.  Keepaway is the simple, obvious, and most effective way to work on these things in a fun and intense way.
