Club overheads tutorial

Overhead throws or overheads are throws made with the arms in a position where the forearms are higher than the upper arms, and the props are thrown from a position near the side of the head. In the overhead position, the elbows should stay at least as high as the shoulders, and stick out either forwards or to the sides.


  • For overhead throws with balls, pointing your elbows out to the sides is more efficient than pointing them forwards. For overhead throws with rings or clubs, point your elbows forward, positioning them at the same width as if you weren't doing overhead throws.
  • Start with your hands shoulder-width apart, not right in front of your face.
  • To transition from the basic pattern to overheads, throw all but two objects a little higher (and slightly backward) to make time to move your arms up to the overhead position. In an asynch pattern, you can reposition one arm at a time.
