We didn't have perfect weather on Sunday May 7, 2017, however it did not discourage our throwers and coaches from putting on a fantastic hammer clinic. In total five local hammer throwers, two parents, and one coach braved through the cold and wet conditions.
The focus of our clinic was to educate young high school throwers on proper warm-up techniques, introduce drills specific to the hammer, and of course throw the hammer. Although the hammer is not a contested event in Western, NY, the indoor weight is, it was still a great opportunity to have some fun and watch the hammer fly.
Below you will find some highlights from our hammer throwing camp.
If you are interested in attending a future clinic, or if you would like our Forza Athletics throwing team to come to your school to host a clinic, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, thanks for reading~Charles
