Track & Field Weight Throw
TUESDAYS FROM 5:30PM-7:00PM (WEIGHT THROW DAY): Athletes will meet at the shot put rings located in the south east corner of the football stadium where they will be coached in the technical aspects of the weight throw as well as participate in exercises, general strength activities and film study. While the weight throw is not an IHSA contested event it is, a long with the hammer throw, an NCAA event that is growing in popularity across the country. The event is predicated on technique and power; great collegiate/world men/women hammer (outdoors)/weight (indoors) throwers range in height and weight from 5 foot 2, 130lbs to 6 foot 7, 260lbs. If athletes have aspirations of competing at the collegiate level they are highly encouraged to attend this session and receive a solid foundation and a head start in this area of throwing. Whether you've never heard of the event or have and just want to try it; all high school athletes are encouraged and invited to attend the Tuesday sessions to learn this great event under expert coaching. Training implements will be provided.
