Throws Experiment Study

  1. 1. INSIDE THE MINDS OFCOLLEGIATE THROWS COACHES IMPLEMENT A THROWING PROGRAM TO MAXIMIZE A COLLEGIATE STUDENT- ATHLETE’S THROWING SUCCESS Christopher K. Witscher
  2. 2. ABSTRACTGOAL• The research delves inside the mind of a collegiate throws coach.• The results reveal what collegiate coaches have in mind, and the transparency of the coaches’ thoughts of what it takes to create and implement a throwing programto benefit and maximize a collegiate student-athlete’s potential based on the accessibility of the survey results on the author’s website and in the research.
  3. 3. LITERATURE REVIEWGOAL OF RESEARCH• Obtain information on throwing programs and procedures from inside the minds of collegiate coaches who have gained experience from the success of their student-athletes.
  4. 4. LITERATURE REVIEWEFFECTIVE COACHING• Do coaches continue to study and research effective coaching in the throwing field arena?• How coaches learn to coach and how they implement what they coachispersonal, andprimarily based on prior coaching experience.
  5. 5. LITERATURE REVIEW• Little to none written about field throwing by successful coaches in the collegiate area.• Wide gap in the area of throwing strategies, methods, and practice.• Traditional networking of coaches was primarily phone, face-to-face informal encounters, camps, or videos (Pagani, 2002).
  6. 6. BACKGROUNDOPERATING A SUCCESSFUL THROWS PROGRAM• Weightlifting – Coaches agreed about maximizing in the weight room.• Training practice – Coaches agreed about how many throws a day and week an athlete should perform per event.
  7. 7. BACKGROUND• Training methods – Coaches agreed as evident by guidelines and shared philosophy via videos and throwing camps (Logan, 2000).• Training for success – Coaches had individualized perceptions of how athletes train for success (Pagani, 2002).
  8. 8. METHODS- PARTICIPANTS• Collegiate Divisions I,II,III coaches participated in the survey: – 12 Females – 24 Males• Coaches* – 18 West region – 11 East region – 5 Midwest region• Degrees held – 18 BA – 17MA – 1 PhD* Responses received
  9. 9. MATERIALS• The survey was created on experience and questions to discover what collegiate coaches do to operate a successful throwing program.• The survey isdivided infour categories: weight-training, training practice, training for success and training methods.
  10. 10. PROCEDURES• Survey distributed by email and available on the website:throwernetwork.com.• Coaches were able to start the survey and stop if needed, and then continue at a different time.• Participants completed the survey by a specific date.
  11. 11. RESULTS• The analyses focus on participants’ answers of the questions thatwere divided into four categories.• Participants’ responses were analyzed on a total of 63 questions: 17 questions focused on weight training; 30 questions on training practice; eight questions on training for success;eight questions on training methods.
  12. 12. RESULTS• Weightlifting – Student-athlete’s should max 1-2 times in the weight room during pre-season. – Coaches implement sport-specific weight lifting into regimen. – Student-athlete’s should throw heavy and lift heavy for a four week cycle and have one week of rest.
  13. 13. RESULTS• Training practices – 60-105 throws a week for the shot-put. – 90-135 throws a week for the discus. – 90-135 throws a week for the hammer. – 50 and below throws a week for the javelin.
  14. 14. RESULTS• Training for success – Commitment, technical improvements, strength drills, mental and emotional stability and goals. – Using other implements than competition weights to gain distance in throwing events. – Throwing repetitions are more effective than drilling repetitions for gaining distance in events.
  15. 15. RESULTS• Training methods – Shot-put glide technique: line hops, A-drill, pivot drill, and glide with stick on back. – Rotational technique for discus and shot-put: pivot drill, wheel drill (half-spin), South Africans, and left leg drills. – Hammer technique: two hammer winds, chain throws, heavy plate throws, and multiple turns. – Javelin technique: Penultimate steps, approaches, creek jumps, and over-head med ball throw.

  20. 20. DISCUSSION• Collegiate coaches share the same perception in training student-athletes to maximize their potential within all the categories.• The study has significant value for the next steps, which includes fully developing the website: throwernetwork.com• Immediate responses and answers to student- athlete’s and coaches can be found on the website to help with training.
  21. 21. CONCLUSION• The study offers significant findings in order to create and develop future work in the area to maximize a student-athlete’s potential in the throws program.• Better networking for coaches and athlete’s.• Better clarity amongst collegiate coaches and athletes.• Accessibility to throwernetwork.com to view and analyze the throwing events.
