    Throwers Camp is for athletes in grades 8-12 who are looking to improve thier shot put/discus technique, work on the mental aspects of the throw and learn drills to correct faults in every phase of the throw. You'll learn how to properly warm-up and get ideas of strength and conditioning. 

    We will keep the number of campers each day to 10 or less in order to provide the personal attention each athlete needs to improve their throw. Camp Director, Tom Thorkelson, Gustavus Adolphus Throws Coach, has worked with many All Conference and All State throwers over the years as well as 54 All-Americans and 6 National Champions at Mankato State and Gustavus Adolphus College.

    This is a "Drills Camp" - we will cover lots of drills to correct faults in every phase of the throw. You will learn proper warm-up and gain ideas on strength and conditioning. You will have fun and you will learn a lot - no matter what level you are at! 

    What is included:

    • Camp T-shirt
    • All you can eat noon buffet.
    • A 3 ring binder illustrating all drills and subjects covered at the camp.
    • We film and analyze each camper and will email/text it to you within 24 hours.
    • Fruit, fruit juice, donuts, fruit snacks, powerade, and water throughout the day.
