This instructable is aimed towards beginners to the sport and people who would like to improve their throwing abilities. These are just a few simple techniques on how to deliver different throws that should help you in the game. These throws will help with your ability to maneuver around the defensive mark and aim the throw so it's easiest for the receiver to catch it.
Things you will need to practice throwing:
-1 or more people (If you have just yourself I recommend multiple discs)
-At least one 175 gram ULTRA-STAR PROFESSIONAL SPORTDISC (official disc of the game)
-cleats (optional - useful if practicing cuts with throwing)
-open expanse of grass (preferable, but other surfaces work as well, just have an open space with no overhead)
Tip: Make sure you "limber up" or stretch properly before throwing or doing any physical activity.
I will give advice for right handed throwers, left handed people can do everything the same only using opposite appendages.
Step 1: Setting up the throwing session
Tip: It's important to warm up your arm with shorter throws before attempting longer throws to avoid injury.
Step 2: The Backhand Grip
The first step is getting the right grip. For the backhand, you have your thumb on the top of the disc. Most people put their forefinger along the rim of the disc and use the rest of your fingers to balance the disc between them and their thumb.
