I’ll admit that I’ve only seen a flip-throw done once or twice and even then it was on TV. So I had some fun watching YouTube videos suggested by the folks over at the NC Soccer Forum. This video shows one heck of a long throw with what appears to be little effort. Here’s another in a match situation that resulted in a score.
My favorite is this one by far. You may think all you have to worry about is the ref when you crowd the throw in. Um, no. This player found that out the hard way:
Ow! Here are a bunch of other flip throw videos.
UPDATE: Wow! Here’s a ten year old girl doing a decent flip throw in a U11G match in California.
