Handler Area



Click on the picture to enlarge and read up a little. I stole this slide from Geoff Buhl (with his permission). He was the coach of Rutgers when I was at lehigh. Rutgers was not very athletic, but Geoff managed to eek every ounce of athleticism and ultimate IQ of these guys to make a run to sunday of regionals every year.

Anyway, basically what we did well 2 years ago was that the handlers and the cutters understood what part of the field was for handler motion, and what part of the field was for big cuts. This lead to cutters setting up for large in and out cuts, and the handlers working to get easy throws off by using their legs.

I am going to post another post on handler cutting.

I've heard so much about this Geoff Buhl guide to ultimate. Is there anywhere to get a copy, or is it by invite only?
