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.

Triangle Give-Go / Double Dribble Drill

This drill (and the double-dribble extension) practices give-go and double dribbling moves on offence, and is a new favourite of mine! The Triangle Give-Go involves a basic straight-line, three-touch give-go/dribble move before passing on to the next player. The Double Dribble extension involves two players dribbling together, and includes a change of direction whilst the disc is in-hand in order to continue the dribble. Full video available to Training Tier patrons.

Training the Next Pull Fielding Meta

Molly Brown and Valeria Cardenas recently set a new standard for fielding the pull which involves a quick give-go off the pull catch, getting the disc back moving aggressively forwards.
Felix breaks down the method into it’s component parts and shows how you can build up a similar good pull fielding routine through training. Available for Training Tier patrons only.

Travis Norsen’s Diamond Throwing Exercise

Travis Norsen talks through this bread-and-butter, everyday-at-the-beginning-of-practice, exercise that allows players to practice throws in somewhat more game-realistic ways compared to traditional partnered throwing. Full post available for Training Tier patrons.

Modified End Zone Drill

This modified version of the classic end zone drill incorporates two extra passes which encourage throw’n’go moves and hitting return passes / give-go moves, adding more flow to the offence when this drill is used as a pre-match warmup, and practicing moving the disc off the sideline with a lateral give-go move. Available for Training Tier Patrons. Watch video…

Training Hex: Dynamic Hex Shape Exercise

This exercise is an engaging way to teach good spacing and hex shape. It challenges players to focus on maintaining shape under increasing amounts of defensive pressure, moving the disc quickly (stall 4 counted from anywhere), and prioritising taking the open pass over looking for yards. Full video (Training Tier Patrons only).

Triangle Dominator Weave Exercise

This exercise (available to Training Tier patrons) replicates the triangle motion offense pattern that Jack Williams talks about in his analysis video of Ring’s dominator offense. Easy setup and execution of the exercise with a group including demonstrations, and head-cam footage breaking down the details from the first person perspective, so you can effortlessly integrate it into your session. Watch the full video here (3:05).

Training Hex: Up-line Flow Drill

This drill (available to Training Tier patrons) involves 1 disc which moves continuously. Players catch and throw, accelerating out of their passes, simulating up-line or slashing cuts, and lateral dribble moves after passing into the backfield. A great replacement for the End Zone Drill which many teams run before matches – gets everybody involved, catching and throwing a number of times each rep. Watch video in full.

Training Hex: Turn’n’Go Double Dribble Drill

This drill video (available to $8 tier patrons) trains players’ ability to accelerate out of their throws into a double-dribble with a teammate. Specifically, bouncing the disc off a player who is moving forward from behind the disc, and attacking downfield with them. Features two examples of this move from the recent US Open 2021 Final between Sockeye and Machine. Full video available to Training Tier patrons.
