Tip of the Week

Javelin training should incorporate a teaching progression that begins learning the carry parallel to the ground above the head with the tip slightly down to begin with but levels off as the thrower moves through the approach.

Javelin coaching within this coaching progression then moves to short throws into the ground from 3-5 steps, 3-5 walking steps throws along a line, then standing throws, 3 step running throws, and 5 step running throws. All of these drills teach the cross over javelin technique that occurs for the last five steps of the javelin run up.
