    Well have you? If so could you give me drills, exercises, or any help at all? I'm student teaching at a junior high this semester and I was asked to help coach track. I have a very small grasp on the two and youtube is not as helpful as you guys are.

    i did it in HS. don't really remember much of the drills though.

    one thing i do remember is always throwing a heavier ball in practice than in competition :dunno:

    I would find someone local who throws, it is hard to teach over the internet.

    Why'd they ask you to teach two things you don't have a grasp of?

    I threw Javelin and Discus in HS and Junior College, dude. Got hurt and couldnt throw at the uni. level. I can help you with discus indefinitely, but not so much shotput. Hit me up with a PM

    Well, its a junior high and there is only one other coach. I'm majoring in kinesiology so its not like I haven't experienced the throws before. I had to take a track and field class that was required by my major.




    Thanks guys for the leads. I appreciate it.
