Weekly Wisdom #21

One of the things that we've been stressing to improve upon as a team is our marks - we want to put a lot of pressure on the throwers, forcing them to make bad throws and bad decisions, we want all of our teammates down field to be able to 100% rely on our marks to not get broken, and we want to improve our footspeed and reaction time while on the mark (footblock, anyone?).  Being on the mark is not a time to catch your breath, this is when you shut down an entire teams offense.

This week's wisdom is coming from Gwen Ambler who talks about marking in this article.  Read it, think about it, incorporate it into your playing.
