Fundamentals: Elbow hot

The positioning of your elbow during the throw is another vital component ensuring that the ball is released on a vertical flight as opposed to a horizontal flight. A vertical release helps the ball go out on a straight line and provides for a consistent throw. With all of this said, it is vital that our lead elbow evaluates above the shoulder on the throw.

The following points are cause to have an elevated lead elbow on the throw.

  • The lead elbow on pre-pass should be off the body slightly below the shoulder so you can elevate to the lead position. This helps the wrist create greater torque.
  • The lead elbow must be above the shoulder line to lead the throw and ball must be off body to create better torque of elbow.
  • The lead elbow should lead the throw.

Elbow Note: Lead elbow should break imaginary pane of glass after elevation of elbow and upon coming down. Wrist will curl if elbow isn’t in lead position. The non-throwing elbow will also break pane of glass as well on torque of trunk on release of throw.
