Proper throwing is built up through repetition, involving both mechanics and arm strength.  Drills should be started at the youngest age and continued throughout a players age progression - we have all seen players who will throw the ball correctly during warmups and practice, and revert to throwing darts in a game to hurry the throw.

Think of the positions that require strong and proper throwing techniques - especially the further to the left side of the field, where players must make a good, hard, fast, and most importantly accurate throw to the furthest base from their start.

Here are some great articles and videos to help with drills, techniques and mechanics - so important for rec and all-stars alike, both of whom risk injury and frustration if they're unsuccessful.
