How to Throw a Frisbee Disc:
There is no one right way to throw a Frisbee. Here are some different
techniques on how to throw. Test each one out and find the most comfortable way
Gripping the Frisbee: Hold with the the thumb on top and the index finger
just under the rim. The middle finger should be extended toward the center of
the bottom with the fourth and little finger curled back against the rim.
Curve it: Tilt the disc in the direction of the desired curve. Throw in a
Sidearm it: Hold the disc with two fingers on the underside, thumb on top and
wrist cocked backward. Swing arm downward at about a 30 degree angle to body.
Keep leading edge of the disc tilted down. Use wrist snap to throw the disc
forward. This is an advanced throw that will take practice.
Skip it: This requires a hard surface to toss off of. Start with the same
motion as a curve throw. The disc should hit the ground on the forward edge
about halfway to the target and skip up to the catcher.
Backhand it: Grip the disc with thumb underneath disc and fingers on top,
with wrist cocked backward. Throw keeping arm straight and near shoulder level.
Snap wrist forward at point of release.
Overhand it: Your thumb on top. Stand sideways toward the target. Reach back
across the front of your body, then swing your arm forward, releasing the disc
toward the target. Tilt the outside edge of the disc down for backswing and
