It’s great fun to go to the park and toss a Frisbee with your pals or your best four footed friend. It looks easy but there are a few rules to help you with accuracy and control. So get out the Frizbee and find a park or field and brush up on your technique.

- The Grip and Stance:
Hold the side of the Frisbee so your thumb is on top, your index finger lines the rim, and the rest of your fingers support the frisbee from the bottom. The grip should be loose to allow a smooth throw. Stand with your feet about a foot apart, with the Frisbee in your throwing hand and your other arm slightly extended for balance. Your body should be loose and in line with your target, with your throwing arm in front.
- The Backhand Throw:
Assume the stance. Hold the Frisbee in front of you in line with your target. Bring your throwing arm back toward the other side of your body, twisting your torso away from the target. Let your wrist and forearm curl, as much as is comfortable, around the Frisbee rim as you draw it back.
- As your arm comes around to the front, in line with your target, completely straighten your wrist with a quick flick. Release the Frisbee tilted slightly up to allow it to roll off your index finger, which should end up pointing at the target.
- Follow through on your throw.
- Get a running start.
- Throw in the direction the wind is blowing.
- Make a large circle when uncurling your arm.
