If the thrown ball does not enter the field, the throw-in is retaken by the same team. A soccer throw-in is a relatively easy skill to master. It is low in complexity meaning there are a few parts to the motion: a wind up phase and an execution; in a forward motion. The timing is at a high level because the execution depends on the mastery of the motion. Smoothness is key. The purpose of this is to throw a projectile accurately to your teammate. A good stance is necessary to transfer power to the core, and then up out the fingertips. The trunk is a major agonist that produces most of the power. You can also put spin on the ball for a better result. Someone who is used to the
