The drill of the week is called the Hustle Drill and comes from Playspedia. This is a great drill to work on cutting, catching while tired, running through the disc and throwing while tired.
- This is an enlarged display of the drill’s setup. Cones = Red 1-7 and Blue 6-7. The thrower is Blue 1 and the cutter is Blue 2. NOTE: the drill IS NOT run full field. For an average run, I would recommend that cones Red 1-3 be about 5-7 yards apart. This drill can be compacted or expanded depending on the workout you’re looking for.
- The cutter starts next to the disc and runs to the first center cone.
- He/She turns and cuts to either of the side cones 4 or 5. As they cut, the thrower puts the disc out into that space so that the runner must react to its placement and move to it.
- #2 then RUNS the disc back to the thrower and repeats the process on the other front cone.
- The same process is continued for the following two sets (Red 2:6-7) (Red 3: Blue 6-7). The Cutter MUST run each disc back to the thrower.
- When sprinted all the way through, this drill can get very tiring, and is a great way to work some simple skills and concepts (catching, throwing to space, etc) while getting a good workout.
