Meet Information

Discus Throwing Clinic

JR Tucker Track & Field will host a clinic for throwers and coaches on Saturday, March 10 from 10AM to 3PM. The clinic will be centered around the discus and is designed to give athletes and coaches the tools and technique needed to throw above your competition. Learn the different tools, training methods and technique from the coaches at Tucker that have in the last 7 years produced 10 Conference Champions, 7 Regional Champions, 12 All State throwers, 2 State Runners Up and 4 State Champions. Filming is encouraged so feel free to bring whatever electronic devices you like. We will provide discuses but if youd like to bring your own personal one that will be fine. We will also be allowing each athlete to get in the discus circle to do a minimum of 10 throws while getting critique from the coaches at Tucker.
Note: The coaches at Tucker have modified the spinning technique in the discus to make it easier to learn but still give you maximum results and that will be what is taught. We will also provide a packet of information covering what is taught as well as common trouble areas to look for when training for the discus.
Fee is $25. For athletes and coaches if you pre-register. $30. If you sign up on the day of the clinic. All checks should be made out to JR Tucker Track & Field and mailed with form to:
