Description

The goal of any great throw is to bring as much speed and stretch reflex to the power position as possible. One must release the implement as close to the optimal speed of release, angle of release, and height of release. The drills in this course are in the order of the front of the circle to the back of the circle. I teach it this way because we are trying to bring the before-mentioned qualities to the power position and through the release at the front. When attempting to learn; practice first without an implement, then with a ball, and last with a disc. What we are trying to do is cultivate this relationship between your brain and your body to know what to do.� One must do thousands of these reputations to master these drills. It starts slow and simple then advances to the whole movement. The drills can be done practically anywhere. It takes dedication and patience to attain the numbers of reps necessary to be proficient. At the end of this course, there are lessons of elite male and female throwers to observe and practice analyzing what they are doing similarly and what they are doing differently. Evaluating a throw when looking at the below positions of your athletes will help you quickly determine what needs work or what you have accomplished. Break contact with the left foot out of the back When they land with their right foot in the center When their left foot taps in the power position in front of the circle Where their body positions are at the end of the release The quest for technical proficiency and further throws begins on day 1 of your career and stops the day you retire.1 Introduction Free 2:31 2 Open and Closed Power Positions 2:50 3 Closed to open non reverse with pause WB 0:56 4 Rhythm Closed to open non reverse WB 0:42 5 Rhythm Closed to open with reverse WB 0:50 6 Repeat 180 turns with stick 1:02 7 3 turns and throw non reverse WB 1:06 8 3 turns to closed throw non reverse WB 0:46 9 3 Turns and throw reverse WB 1:16 10 Discus path with Power ball 1:05 11 Sweep leg drill FV 0:53 12 Sweep leg drill RV 0:38 13 Shin angle with sweep path 0:46 14 Shin angle with sweep path RV 0:39 15 Crack the whip 1:05 16 Crack the whip RV 1:10 17 Crack the whip to closed power 1:20 18 Line drill with power ball 1:03 19 South African non reverse WPB 0:57 20 South African with reverse WB Free 1:26 21 South African Focal Points with reverse WD 1:26 22 South African with reverse WD 1:03 23 Windup 2:26 24 Full throw non reverse WB 1:40 25 Full throw with reverse WD 1:23 26 Andy Bloom 1:19 27 Aretha Thurmond Free 1:22 28 Daniel Stahl 1:34 29 Gerd Kanter 1:38 30 John Powell 1:21 31 Mac Wilkins 2:36 32 Sandra Perkovic 1:18 33 Valarie Allman 2:36Scott Bennett has over 40 years of experience coaching everyone from high schoolers to Olympians.
