hey ppl!

been playin ultimate for about a year and a half now so limtied experience. but i have entered a team into a iron five tournament in about 2 / 3 weeks.

i was wondering if there are any offensive/defensive plays tht can limit the amount of runnin we have to do on either end of play.

or even if there is a website that can detail all this.

any help will be great!!

hopefully you are already in shape, because no matter how many strategies you have to limit running, playing in an iron tournament is rough.  some advice i can give you is to limit mistakes.  obviously, the less you turn the disc over, the less defense you have to play, and the less running is involved.  i would also suggest running a 3 person weave, since it gives two people a play off.  if you rotate the players into the weave, then you can give everyone points "off" while still moving the disc up the field.
i wish i could be more help, good luck

no problem, i just had to find a good visualization to show you.  essentially, the weave is just a 3 person give-and-go down the field.  As the three handlers work the disc up the field, the others essentially wait in the endzone.  It might be a little difficult for newer players to run, but if you've got two experienced players running it with a newer player, it should work.  Here is a pretty good example of what the three handlers do:

I hope that helps

A few helpful hints:

Time management will be to your advantage when playing. Find out what the max time is between points and milk it to the second if your team is tired. If the other team is tired, raise your hand to pull as soon as you get to the line.

When you guys are tired, allowing a few seconds to drop off of the stall count before you worry about throwing if something isn't open immediately after the catch.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate !

Use many different types of zone to throw the offense off while only running a few people hard at a time. A 5 man zone sounds odd but can be effective. Go between clam, 2-2-1 zone and a 1-3-1 zone when man coverage isn't working.

Rotate positions frequently.

Punting is a good option when nothing is happening and you're high in the stall count.

Hope this helps! I'm sure that there are plenty of other options but I'm not going to type all day.

When in doubt, the hammer is always a good choice.
