    I'd say my throw in is average. I play in the middle so I don't really take many but I am interested in finding out how to improve it. How would I go about making my throw longer? Back flexibility? Arm strength? Is there any science to this?

    I'm sure that arm strength plays into it but like most things, form is very important too.
    The most important thing is to make the most of all of your throws, though...If you can time all of your throws right and know where to throw it, it means a lot more than how strongly you can throw it.

    i think you might wanna see how some players on tv do throws. like, some jump then when their feet touch the ground, they throw. some have their body angled in a different way.
    i've heard bending your elbows to the max helps increase throwing distance. and also, keep your elbows pointed outward.

    do the jumpy thingy but when you take it arch your back and ripple up through your body and throw it with the riple so stomach, shoulders, arms forward, release the ball and follow through otherwise it will just go up
