Ultimate Frisbee Drills – MTA’s (Maximum Time Aloft)

If you spend a lot of time practicing throwing by yourself, a great drill is throwing MTA’s. MTA or Maximum Time Aloft is all about trying to have the disc stay in the air as long as possible. This is ideal when pulling as well so practicing MTA’s will help your pulling big time.

This is a great drill for becoming a better puller and overall thrower. By doing this drill, you will be able to throw the disc longer, higher and more accurately. As well, you will become better at reading the disc while in the air and you can practice your catching. I only show this drill with my backhand but you can also do MTA’s with a forehand.

I’m the current and 4-time Self Caught Flight World Champion. My best MTA is 15.37 seconds, in 2013 at the WFDF World Overall Flying Disc Championships in Sweden. I also have the Canine MTA and MTA on Ice Skates World Records. I have the 2nd and 3rd highest SCF scores of all time.

You can watch some of my best MTA & TRC throws from competition below.
