For beginners proper throwing technique is
very important. The ball always has to be at the back of your head and come forward
clean. It can’t come from the sides like this. That is an illegal throw. You can’t
throw it with one hand it has to be both. So throws like this okay or this are not legal.
There are two kinds that I would like to demonstrate. The first is just a short throw-in you want
to keep your feet together your heels down that is the most important part. Find your
target, hands back and thrust through. Second type of throw-in is used for a long throw-in.
Perhaps you are backed up in your own end and you need to clear the space a little bit.
For this it is one step, plant that left foot and I want you to drag your right as you are
throwing. It is very important when you are doing either throw-in to keep your feet on
the ground okay. If you do not do this the referee will award a throw-in for the other
team and you will lose possession. So for the short throw heels back always on the ground
coming through but don’t lift your heels keep them on there. When you drag your foot
do not lift your foot. For the long throw keep the drag.
