Cornhole Tossing Tips

Cornhole players may have different tossing techniques. And here, we have tossing tips that can you toss better and improving your chance of winning. What to know what are they? Well, let’s check them out!

Bag Spinning and Grip

What differs the pros from casual players are the toss’ mechanics and the ability to repeat those mechanics. Most of the pros use a spin toss. And for a good reason. Adding spin to the bag helps stabilize it. Indeed, a spinning bag is more controllable and less likely to move around in windy conditions. Keep practicing until you get it.

How to properly grip the bag?

You should grip the bag with four of your fingers under the bag and your thumb on the top center. Use both feet together for the starting stance. Your knees should bend slightly and your body should lean slightly over your throwing arm as this will allow your arm to swing straight, without hitting your leg.

What to do:

  1. Step forward toward the foul line with your foot opposite of your throwing arm.
  2. As you step forward, your arm should swing backward and as your weight transfers to your forward foot, your arm will swing past your hip.
  3. Then, release the bag above the waistline. Allow your hand and arm to finish at head level.
  4.    Your wrist will rotate, only slightly, as your arm swings.
  5. You can achieve the spin by your fingers, at the top of the release.
  6. As the bag move away from your hand, both your index and middle fingers should maintain contact with the bag a bit longer, in order to generate the spin.

Sound difficult? Yes, because it is. However, it is worth the effort once you master this technique.
