Jim Aikens has been coaching the throws since 1984. During this time Coach Aikens’ throwers have medaled at national competitions, won four state championships, and 20 other state medals. His throwers have also won numerous sectional and conference championships. In addition, he has had 5 throwers toss the shot 60 feet or better. He has earned his USA Track & Field Level 1 and Level 2 certification.
In the video below Coach Aikens demonstrates a station approach to throws practice. While this is just one way to run a practice coach he indicates that he likes the fact that with this structure he can utilize his more experienced athletes as leaders/coaches at each station.
In this video, you will see 6 different stations/drills that he has set up for this particular workout.
