Throwing Muse

As the saying goes, “You get what you get… and then you throw it!” (Okay, that’s my variation.)

We’ve been working with all levels on throwing and catching technique: overhand and underhand with balls and bean bags, as well as other objects like javelin and now, our next unit, flying discs.

Preschoolers and Younger Kids threw to hoops or baskets, and the practice self-toss and catch. We work on eye-hand coordination and body position.

Our disc unit starts with basic disc throwing and catching technique. We learn the standard backhand disc throw as well as how to throw forehand and a few other “trick” throws that can come in handy for certain games.
