As a former member of the Iowa State University Women's Ultimate Frisbee Team, Woman Scorned, which has appeared at College Nationals 2009 and 2011, I have a few insights into the sport of Ultimate Frisbee. I've gained all my skills and knowledge from other very talented men and women in the sport.
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
To being with, stand approximately 20 ft. away from your target/partner.
Tip: It's important to warm up your arm with shorter throws before attempting longer throws to avoid injury.
