Well as for throwing flick a good way to strengthen your wrist is by hold your elbow in tightly to your side try even using your other arm to hold it down( put your arm along your back and hold your arm just above your elbow). Following through isn't where your focus should be. It's an illusion because you can throw a good flick barely moving your arm; it's all in the wrist and how hard you're snapping it. to help make sure when your stepping that you are stepping more forward than sideways other wise you'll get off balance. Try pointing your foot in the direction of the person your throwing to on the field. Also pay attention to where your thumb is placed; make sure it's pointing to the center of the disc and not pointing out. I had issues with throwing a flick because it would always curve off until someone noticed my thumb placement was wrong. Also when you throw it make sure you're not leaning back otherwise your throw will go high and end up floating almost straight down. When you're stepping your whole body is going with you so your back should be straight. Echoing others; practice is key. Everyone is different so you'll have to figure out what works and is comfortable for you. As for reading the disc never be under the disc and pay attention to the edge of it. Even when you're jumping for it pay attention to that edge. This will help your catching abilities so all you need to worry about is timing, and timing your jump will come with practice. Also try and build your leg muscles if you have access to a gym I recommend leg extensions and curls and calve raises. Hope this helps! Good luck!
