Basic Catching Positions

by Joey deVilla on May 2, 2010

1970s guys in a very 1970s outfit demostrating the "thumbs-down catch" and the "thumbs-up catch"

My question is: “Catching positions for what?” Volleyball? Things thrown from an upstairs window? Stage-diving characters from a production of Godspell or Jesus Christ Superstar?

Nice find. For some bonus frisbee-nerd points: the “thumbs up catch” is really better used down-low. Beardy McBarefeet is just making it hard on himself trying to grab it up high like that.

It seems TPL doesn’t have this book, but a quick search reveals the promising “Frisbee: a practioner’s manual and definitive treatise (1975)”.
