The concluding part of the Flex Defence series, this video provides a step-by-step breakdown of on-field communication which I’ve found to be the simplest and most effective when switching and surrounding stacks whilst playing Flex Defence.
Manuela Cardenas uses dribbling to work the disc the length of the field, and Felix provides a breakdown of how her technique makes her so difficult to stop, and what everybody can take away to add to their game.

The “How to Train Hex” video series – Season 1 – features 9 uniquely Hex-centric drills. This series is essential for any coaches wishing to implement Hex principles smoothly into their team – coming directly from Felix’s experiences with designing, implementing, and developing Hex training methods in a variety of teams since 2012. Each drill / exercise is explained clearly and concisely through explanations, animations, and example footage. The drills are varied and dynamic – designed to train players’ quick disc movement, field awareness, shape + space creation & usage, give-go/dribbling technique, long throwing, and more elements key to a fluid Hex Offence.

… reddit post & comments about this video…
Sockeye’s Tyler Kinley joins Felix to talk about a series of tweets he posted on 29-30 Dec, specifically the frustrations he feels when defenders fail to poach effectively against a horizontal stack offence. We then see an example of a successful deep poach, and talk about how teamplay can be used in different ways to cover for the poach – to afford the defender the liberty to leave their 1-to-1 matchup, and keep the offence contained effectively. Full interview/analysis available for Patrons.

Felix analyses the plays and the impacts of Joe White, Sean Keegan, and Sam Little before drawing conclusions. These are excerpts taken from the full 10 player analysis video, which also features analysis of Gibson, Bansfield, Mickle, Garvey, Jagt, Lindsley & Hou.
From March to July 2020, we hosted our first season of live streamed analysis sessions. Twice a week I was joined by select guests, and we would dive deep into analysis of a game of their choice whilst chatting frisbee for an hour or two. The result is an epic archive of insight and conversation with some of the greatest minds in the game, covering 22 games in 43 sessions. Most of these sessions cover half a game – the 1st half on YouTube, and the 2nd half on Patreon – available for a token of your appreciation ($1/month). See more…
