Throwing can build so much confidence in children! Practice with lots of different types of objects, big and small, to help encourage and build their technique.


Steps to Throwing

  • Stand with your non-throwing shoulder towards target
  • Transfer weight from back to lead front foot
  • Rotate hips and spine
  • Stretch arm far back to make an uppercase "L"
  • Step with foot opposite of throwing arm
  • Throwing arm moves forward
  • Let the ball go in the direction of target
  • Allow throwing arm to follow through to target


What to Watch For

  • Always step forward with opposite foot
  • Transfer weight from back to front foot for more force



  • Practicing overheard throwing is great for distance! See how far you can throw!
  • Playing games is the best way to practice throwing
