If you’re a regular visitor then you’ll know that my focus has been primarily on throwing. In my videos, in my articles and on my dvd, I consider throwing to be the most important part of ultimate. A team full of good throwers/catchers can beat any team since ultimate is a game of possession (in the most general sense).

However, I’m going to start including more videos and articles that delve into the other aspects of ultimate which are also very important and will go a long way in making you a better overall player. I will also provide resources which coaches/captains will find useful in trying to teach new players the game of ultimate.

With, that I drew up an illustration which talks about forcing. I find a lot of newer players have a hard time understanding what this is all about and they have a hard time visualizing how this works on the field. I will start this discussion with the graphic I’ve attached and will be filming a video which will attempt to demonstrate this on the field so it’s every easier to understand.

Let me know if you have any questions and as always, I welcome your comments.
