One of the best ways for any individual to improve offensive efficiency is to become a better thrower. If you can comfortably execute multiple throws under pressure, not only does it give you more options, it gives your cutters more options.
A throw is defined by the UPA as: A throw is a disc in flight following any throwing motion, including after a fake attempt, that results in loss of contact between the thrower and the disc.
- A pass is the equivalent of a throw.
- The act of throwing is the motion of the thrower that transfers momentum from the player to the disc and results in a throw. Pivots and wind-ups are not considered part of the act of throwing.
