How to Do a Flip Throw-In

How do you do a flip throw in soccer? Doing a flip throw in soccer is a great way to make every throw-in like a corner kick. From nearly any section of the field, in the attacking half of the field that is, you can throw the ball into the box and hopefully get a chance on goal.

Don’t do this during a soccer though…a flip throw-in right to the defender’s face. I’m sure this was a yellow card infraction since the player doing the flip throw knew he was going to hit the other player right in the face.

It’s rare still to see a flip throw-in during a professional soccer game. Often, most soccer players can throw the ball in far enough to make it seem almost like a corner kick in the attacking third. Late in games it is more common to see pro soccer players try to at least do a long throw in. Ideally, players try to pick out a tall player on the near post who can flick the ball on.
