My thumb got stepped on during an intremeral basketball game, and it's been slow to heal, and I have two ultimate games next week on tues/thurs. Last game it was windy and all my throws sucked.
I've been practicing my left handed flick and backhand, but they both are pretty weak and unreliable, is there any drills or tips people can think of that I could use to strengthen my throws?
I have a small trampoline about 7 yards or so away from the edge of my yard, and I've been trying to throw at that.
Any Help or advice would be great, kinda desperate.

Hey PeanutButterKing,

First off, welcome to UltiTalk.  Smiley

To answer your question, I would say you just need to do a lot of practicing.  Grab a friend and head to the park for a session of throwing with your non-dominant hand only.

I remember when I was first teaching myself to throw lefty.  Not because of injury but simply b/c being able to throw with both hands is becoming the norm of Ultimate Frisbee these days.  I started off terrible and couldn't throw a disc with any kind of reasonable distance or accuracy.  Fast forward several years later and I can throw both flicks and backhands fairly well with my left hand.  I'm still working on it though (as well as hammers and scoobers).

Good luck!
