Cover: all access wartburg track & field practice: throws
All Access Wartburg Track & Field Practice: Throws

with Marcus Newsom,
Wartburg College Head Coach;
6x United States Track Coaches Association DIII Indoor Women's Coach of the Year;
3x USTFCCCA DIII Outdoor Women's Coach of the Year;

featuring Melissa Norton, Wartburg College Assistant Track & Field Coach, Strength & Conditioning Coach

The Wartburg Track program has grown into a national power under Coach Newsom's watch. Wartburg has won 14 straight indoor women's conference championship titles and nine men's indoor championships. The women have a string of 17 consecutive outdoor titles. The men have won eight league outdoor titles since 2002. In 2009, his women's teams became only the seventh team in NCAA Division III history to sweep indoor and outdoor national titles in the same season, and earned the inaugural Deb Vercauteren Program of the Year award from the USTFCCCA. The program also won the award in back-to-back-to-back season (2012-14). The 2012 women's team swept the National Championships and set new all-time meet records in team points in both venues.

In this video, filmed 'live' showing 'all access' footage of two days of Wartburg throws practices, Coach Norton essentially turns one group practice into four or five 'individual practices' within a group setting. She demonstrates eight basic drills for each athlete while instructing them individually. Watching as Norton expertly cues her athletes as they make adjustments across the session from drill to drill is as much of a learning experience as any of the drills she shares!

Norton shows 17 championship-caliber drills that cover the three key fundamental concepts that can be used to maximize distance. These drills can be used to develop, enhance, and improve:

  • Arm strike
  • Left side block
  • Keeping the hips up
  • Finishing at the highest point
  • Increasing speed on the release

Drill Progressions

Coach Norton uses a set progression of drills for both the rotational shot and disc throughout the video. By progressing from simple standing throws, through the power position, weighted spins, and finally full throws, you will get a great idea of the framework of each session. The drills that Coach Norton demonstrates can be used to show different aspects of using speed across the ring, balance and coordination to get through the ring, and getting through the ring quickly while under control.

Norton explains why these drills will emphasize good mechanics on the athlete to develop:

  • The power position
  • The transfer to the left side
  • Continuous hip motion
  • Staying shut or closed
  • Keeping the arms up
  • Good balance
  • Speed on the release

Increase Speed and Improve Coordination

In these segments, you'll see how athletes use ankle weights to improve coordination and balance as they develop speed through the circle. Later on in practice, Norton also uses lighter implements, enabling her athletes to apply power more easily through the ball, increasing their speed of release.

Identify Common Errors and Mistakes

Throughout the video, Norton identifies common errors that her throwers make and shares her insights on how to adapt her drills and practices to meet their individual needs.

Coach Norton explains that if the athlete can get to the correct power position, work a correct arm strike and left side block, have a continuous motion of right to left foot, and learn to finish high - it will give the implement more time in the air and lead to a successful throw.

Improve the distance of your athletes' throws today by implementing some of the many ideas, concepts, drills, and, pick up some of the most effective verbal cues used to elevate this team to be among the highest-performing throwers in the country every year!

Cover: teaching and coaching glide and rotational shot put
Teaching and Coaching Glide and Rotational Shot Put
with Jim Garnham,
University of Buffalo Assistant Coach/Throws;
Coach of 2015 NCAA National Champion Jon Jones (shot put);
3x USTFCCCA Northeast Regional Coach of the Year; 30 years as a high school coach, finishing with at least one state champion each year during his final 10 years coaching (1992-2001).

Learn from a coach that has over 45 years experience coaching the shot put at the high school level, collegiate ranks, and on the national scene. Jim Garnham covers everything from grip and carry to pushing aggressively from the back to unleash more powerful throws. With demonstrations from Jon Jones, NCAA Outdoor National Champion in the shot put, Coach Garnham, breaks down the major aspects of the event. He provides drills, instructions and personal insights on the importance of each segment of the throw.

Carry and Strike

You will learn the importance of proper carry position and discover progressive drills for striking the shot put that can be used as introductory practices for beginners, as well as a warm up review for your advanced athletes. Exercises progress from simple warm up activities through more complex actions to allow the thrower to isolate the basics before rehearsing the skill as part of the larger movement.

Improving the Block

Taking advantage of the stretch shortening/reflex cycle is one of the most effective ways to increase power in the shot put. Coach Garnham explains the benefits of blocking the left side of the body (for right handed throwers), to increase the momentum of the opposite side. He then provides a blocking drill and gives various coaching cues to help you communicate effectively with your athlete while rehearsing the skill.

Teaching the Basic Concepts of the Full Glide and Spin Technique

Not all athletes are built the same. By being able to teach the various concepts of both glide and spin technique, you'll feel confident selecting and teaching either technique to your athlete. This will enable you to take full advantage of each athlete's unique skill set to maximize their performance in the ring.

Strength Training

Coach Garnham shows you how to use a variety of implements to build strong and fast throwers. You'll see how to incorporate a bucket full of sand or rice to build strength in your athlete's fingers.

This is a great video for the beginning and intermediate thrower. Coach Garnham's drills and techniques will have an immediate impact on the distance of your athletes' throws.

Becoming a Champion: Glide & Spin Shot Put for Girls' Track & Field
Erin Wibbels, Guatemala National Team Coach (throwers);
former Assistant Coach at the University of Mississippi; 4x qualifier for the NCAA Outdoor Championships at Nebraska and a 2000 Olympic Trials participant

Coach Erin Wibbels shares her All-American-producing program for developing rotational and glide shot putters. Coach Wibbels discusses and demonstrates the critical training drills and progressions that highlight the secret behind a successful throw. She demonstrates over 40 drills and medicine ball exercises that will help the young athlete develop the consistency that is needed for this technical event.

Warm-Up
Loosen up your legs, hips, and shoulders with dynamic and static warm-up drills that are geared specifically for the weight throws. You will then be taken into the ring and shown a set of warm-up drills using the shot itself.

Fundamentals
Wibbles demonstrates an easy approach to teach the shot put using a fundamental, proven system. Wibbels teaches from the ground-up:

  • How to Hold the Shot Put
  • Basics of the Glide
  • Basics of the Spin
  • The Secrets Behind the Stand Throw
Glide
Wibbels concentrates on proper body mechanics and positioning. She introduces drills to help with foot work and posture, and using the toe-knee-hip concept, Wibbels offers coaching points and various camera angles to show what to look for when coaching your athletes.

Spin
Develop proper footwork starting from the front of the ring and moving backward. Offering variations of the Wheel Drill, the Knee-Up Drill and the South African drill, Coach Wibbels uses clear and concise coaching points and language to make clear what you should be doing with each step to maximize your throw.

Medicine Ball Drills
Discover shot put-specific medicine ball drills to develop quickness, strength and core body strength. These drills are appropriate for athletes at all levels of development.

Throughout the video you will be shown how to do the drill, what to look for as a coach, and ways to correct the most common mistakes beginning throwers make. Keeping the weight over the back foot, screwing up the leg to build upward motion, and remembering to "crush the spider" are just of few of the many things taught in this video.

From the beginning of the warm-up to the final medicineball drill, you will see everything you need to know to start someone out in one of track & field's power events - the shot put.
