Disc/Frisbee Throwing

There are

a lot lot of different kinds of throws.Newer players should concentrate more on keeping the disc flat than trying to rip long drives. Distance will come with time and practice. Developing proper grip, form, and release will aid you in

Wrap the last three fingers (middle finger on down) around the edge of the disc. Take your index finger and place the edge of the first knuckle (ie the one closest to your fingernail) on the bottom lip of the

under lightly. Finally, take your thumb

the top of

the disc.
