How do you position your hands to catch a football?
The basic rule of catching is to make a diamond-shaped window (some coaches teach a triangle) by putting the thumbs and index fingers of both hands together with the fingers spread out. This hand position is used when a football is coming waist high (belt buckle) or above, and directly to the receiver.
How do you train to throw a farther?
To improve your throwing distance, practice letting the ball roll off of your fingers as you throw, aim to throw the ball at a 45-degree into the air, and practice long toss regularly. Remember to stretch before you throw to ensure that you don’t hurt yourself and keep your throwing arm healthy.
Do you need to be strong to throw a football far?
Throwing the football far and accurate requires proper lower body and upper body mechanics. Arm power is a great asset, but if you’re wild with your throws (over the head or even too wide), then your strong arm is useless to the receivers.
