In every sport (save cycling and aquatics) there is an element of footwork that goes into the skills and techniques that an athlete develops. In baseball it is the timing of a batter waiting for a pitch. In football, it is the cornerback pedaling backwards, shuffling sideways, sprinting all-out, and the transitions in between.

In Ultimate footwork has become more and more of a priority for individual players at the elite level. Efficiencies with your legs on defense can mean the difference between getting a block and giving up an easy goal. Being able to effectively pivot with the disc in your hands can mean getting a throw off before stall 10.

In this issue of "The Huddle," we have asked our authors to discuss examples of good footwork on the field and what we can do to improve, illustrate who they have seen that demonstrates superior skills in this manner, and show us what may be some telltale signs of poor form.
