Rounders: side throw

Love this site, it's amazing, full of skills and great advice.
Martin

DESCRIPTION

Players work in pairs, throwing and catching the ball between each other.

COACHING POINTS

The side throw is used to generate more power when throwing than the underarm throw.

Players should release the ball approximately at waist height, using their front arm as a pointer which should finish after throwing pointing at their target.

Before throwing look for the elbow to come through first.

Hold the ball between fingers and thumb on top for control, with palm facing upwards.

Players should let go of the ball lastly with their fingers.
