This week starts the season for all of us. I don’t know about you guys but I’m ready to start coaching. below are a few items that you might find useful.
Either way, I can’t think of a better place to be on Sunday, January 28th than Wheaton North High School, new home to the A-Z Throws Clinic.
Athletes will receive expert instruction in the shot put (glide or rotational) and discus.
And unlike many throws clinics where each instructor is responsible for a couple dozen athletes, the A-Z features small group instruction. We have 15 excellent coaches with many years of experience (Jim Aikens, for example, began his stellar career teaching the rotational technique to Union soldiers using cannonballs) so every athlete will get plenty of individual attention from a knowledgeable professional.
Follow this link for info about the clinic schedule and registration.
3. All the notes from the ITCCCA Clinic are up and available on the ITCCCA Website. This is a good resource I go back to quite often.
