    One-Handed Underhand Throw

    Propelling an object forward using a one-handed underhand motion.

    One-Handed Underhand Throw
    • Cradle the object in the throwing hand with the object resting in the palm
    • Focus on the target
    • Stand face-on to the target
    • Swing the throwing arm backwards while stepping forward with the opposite foot to the throwing arm
    • Lean slightly over the extended front foot
    • Release the object
    • Follow through towards the target
    I can also...
    • play baseball
    • play wheelchair bocce
    • participate in bowling
    Self Check Questions:
    • Does my weight transfer from my back foot to my front foot as I throw?
    • Do I keep my eyes on the target throughout the motion?
    • Do I perform the throw in one fluid motion?
