Origin of the throw-in

Although there is no exact date of its origin, many consider that the throw-in originated practically at the same moment in which football was born .

Story

The throw-in has been evolving along with football as a sporting discipline. In the beginning it did not have specific rules but, as time went by, several rules were added to improve sports performance and game results.

Application in football

How to mark

The throw-in in soccer is marked by the referee at the moment in which the ball leaves the field of play crossing one of the lateral parts of the same.

How the ball is put into play

In order to put the ball in motion again in the field of play, it is necessary for the player to properly position the position of his hands, which must be spaced correctly to hold the ball. The feet must also be placed in a suitable position, the arms will be placed behind the head , then extended and then the ball is thrown.

Rules

The rules for the execution of the throw-in are as follows:

  • The player must face the field of play with a part of his feet placed on the touch line or on the outside.
  • The ball must be thrown from the back of the head .
  • Those in charge of establishing whether a throw-in is necessary are the referee’s assistants.
  • It must be executed in the same place where the ball left and it is the task of the central referee to indicate this position.
  • When a throw-in is taken, there can never be an offside .

Mistakes

When the throw-ins are committed incorrectly, the ball must pass into the power of the opposing team.

Throw-in in futsal

How to mark

In futsal , a throw-in is only scored when the ball completely crosses one of the side lines , either through the air or on the ground . When this happens, the return of the ball to the field of play must be made by a specific player.

How the ball is put into play

In futsal, this type of service must be done with the feet , the ball will be placed first in the place where it came out and can be thrown in any direction . At the time of serving, the player must have a part of his feet on the side line or on the outside of the playing court.

Rules

Some of the rules for taking the throw-in are as follows:

  • Players cannot have their feet fully on the court .
  • The player in charge of taking the throw-in may not touch the ball again until a player from the opposing team has touched it.
  • When the ball is touched by hand , the player will be penalized with a direct shot.
  • The players must respect a distance of 5 meters from the ball and cannot be outside the field of play.
  • The ball must be on the ground , immobile and placed on the side line , with a maximum of 25 centimeters outside the line.
  • The time to take the throw-in is four seconds after the ball is ready.
  • If any player tries to obstruct the throw-in, he will be penalized with a yellow card .

Mistakes

One of the most common mistakes is that the player forgets to keep or place their feet properly on the touchline and this causes the team to lose power over the ball. It is also important not to make the mistake of having players off the field of play at the time a service is taken.

Throw-in in handball

How to mark

The throw-in is marked at the moment in which a player throws the ball out of the field of play by one of the band lines that make up the area.

How the ball is put into play

In handball , the ball is put into play by means of the throw-in by throwing the ball along the line on which the ball left the field of play or from a place very close to it.

Rules

The main rules of the throw-in in handball are the following:

  • It should be done by the team that had the ball possession for the last time .
  • It must be done in the place where the ball left the touch line or in a place very close to it.
  • The player’s feet must be in the correct position.
  • The referee does not have the obligation to give the signal for it to be carried out.

Mistakes

Some of the most common mistakes that occur at the time of taking a throw-in include that the player who is taking the shot, touches the ball again without a player on the team having previously touched it. Another mistake is that the players forget to place themselves at an adequate distance from where the throw-in is taken, which must always be 5 meters.

Importance

The throw-in is important because when done correctly it can be converted into one of the best opportunities for the team to maintain proper possession of the ball , taking advantage of the opportunities it provides to score a goal or a point.

Historic throw-ins

Some examples of historical throw-ins are as follows:

  • Throw-in by Danish Thomas Gronnemark who managed to reach 51.33 meters, thus entering the Guinness records .
  • Throw-in by Mahan Rahmani, a Peykan FC footballer who managed to execute an impressive throw-in, a move that ended in a goal.
