My old training partner Ryan Jensen and I published a short article in Track Coach last winter about coaching beginners. Ryan coaches the youth throwers at the Kamloops Track and Field Club, and we drew on our experience (mostly his) to lay out a method for getting a beginner to easily complete a three turn throw. This fall, we published a follow-up where we discuss what to work on next. Finishing a throw is step one; perfecting it is the next step.
The second article focuses on some common errors and ways to approach fixing them. I talk about technical issues on here from time to time, but I often stay on the theoretical level and have never attempted to put the different pieces together. This was an attempt to do so in a very quick and readable way. As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback.
