Vertical Stack: CYCLONE
- Part of a membership
This article explains how the "vertical stack" cyclone formation is used in ultimate frisbee and how it can be used to your team's advantage. The vertical stack is a formation in which all players are standing in a single vertical line perpendicular to the sideline. This formation creates a better opportunity for the offense to move the disc downfield, as the defenders will have a harder time covering the entire length of the line. On the other hand, the offense may have trouble connecting with their receivers due to a lack of space for the offense to work. Despite this, the vertical stack cyclone can still be a powerful offensive strategy if used correctly.
