My friends and fellow coaches Jim Aikens, Roger Einbecker, and I have begun offering webinars on track and field topics.
The webinar format is simple. When you register, you will receive an email providing a link to that particular webinar. At the designated starting time, you simply click that link to be included as a guest. You will then be able to see and hear the presentation and to type in questions that the host of the webinar will convey to the presenter.
The advantage of this format is that it allows makes coaches from anywhere in the world available to anyone with a computer (or computer-like device such as a smart phone).
You can view a recording of a previous webinar on the glide shot put here:
Our next webinar will take place on Thursday, August 3rd at 6:00pm central time.
The presenter, Jeff Rebholz, will be coming to you from his home in Maryland.
Let me tell you a little bit about him.
A few years ago, I had a quick, tough, undersized (5’9″, 160 lbs) thrower named Branden Miller. I was very proud of Branden when he threw 47′ with the 12 lb shot and 157′ with the 1.6k discus his senior year of high school. After all, he was undersized.
He then moved on to Carthage College and in four years of throwing for Jeff Rebholz he reached 54’7″ with the 16 lb shot, 163′ with the 2k disc, 189′ with the hammer, and 168′ with the javelin. Apparently Jeff did not notice that Branden was too small to throw those distances.
Jeff moved on to Towson University in Maryland last fall, and he is currently working on converting one of his glide shot putters to the rotational style.
On August 3rd, at 6:00pm central time, he will share a progression of drills that he is using to help that athlete develop solid rotational technique.
This webinar is free. Jeff will field questions throughout.
I invite you to set aside the time to attend. Jeff is a great young coach, and anyone who trains rotational putters at any level will benefit from interacting with him.
