Don’t Rely On the “Up” Call – Work on Your Field Awareness

Too many times in a game, the disc will be thrown, the player on offense will catch it,  the defender will turn to their team and shout “Where was the up call?”.

However, it’s not up to your team to tell you where the disc is. Sure, an “Up” call will help, but you should also be aware and know where the disc is, where the offensive player is and be ready to make a bid on the disc.

Since the receiver already has the advantage, you must work on your field awareness in order to increase your chances of getting a D on the disc.
