I have had the great honor to have spent the past two months coaching Taylor Youngkrans. In that time, we have spent our time increasing her wind speed and third turn speed. The video above shows Taylor's progression. The throw on the left is from this past Thursday. The throw on the right is from seven weeks ago. The different may look subtle, but it has added a great deal of confidence to her throws.
This will be the last week we throw outside. We'll get a mock meet in on Saturday afternoon to gauge where we are before we transition to the weight. Beginning next week we'll start throwing the 20lb. weight.
Thanks for reading!
