You have no chance of winning without learning TRULY how to throw.
At an Arete Throws Nation™ Camp, you are NOT going to grab your implement and get in a ring and just throw for 4 hours; that is how to ingrain bad habits and learn nothing!
At an ATN™ throws camp, you will learn HOW to throw FAR using the TCR™ system….
So, why should throwers and coaches come and learn the Throwing Chain Reaction™ system?
Well…. here’s 4 reasons you’ll want to attend an Arete™ Summer Throws Camp….
YOU COACH FOR THE ATHLETES
and not the trophies
LEARNING TO THROW
is taking longer than you thought
YOU WANT YOUR RESULTS TO REFLECT
how hard you work at it
YOU’RE READY TO CRUSH
your competition every damn season!
“As a throws coach, having me physically go through the drills is really important and has taught me how to better translate what I want to coach to my athletes!” – Coach
“The ATN Summer Throws Camp is the best shot put & discus camp I’ve ever been to. I learned more today, then I have all 3 years I’ve been a thrower…”
“I wish my daughter and I knew about this camp and the TCR™ system a little earlier! Now we are trying to undo some bad habits, and she has already seen great improvements at this camp… that is fast results!”
“I like how the camp breaks everything down into parts that everyone can understand, like the foot work. As a volunteer coach, I really appreciated how much I was able to learn about a sport I’ve never done. I feel a lot more confident in my coaching abilities now”
“I signed up my son to the TCR™ camp to help him work on many technical issues, and he left with such confidence, and enthusiasm now that he has a solid foundation of how to throw correctly. He even PR’d 2 times at the camp in both shot put and discus- thank you Coach Johnson, we will definitely be back!”
“I really enjoyed how the coaches were walking around and making sure I was in the right positions and doing the drills and moving correctly- great one on one attention and focus!” – Thrower
Learn The THROWING CHAIN REACTION™ SYSTEM & Watch Your Old PRs Go Up In Smoke!
Discover The Throwing Chain Reaction™ System
Improper technique, or “I think it’s right” coaching can put your throwing results straight into the grave! Learn the true science of each throw, and regardless if you’re a first time thrower/ coach, or a veteran… you will see a significant transformation.
Identify What Part Of The Throw Is Limiting Your Ability To THROW FAR!
Discovering what is holding you back is a game changer in any throws program. Is it the weight room, or my technique?…. it’s usually both, but the BIG throw stopper is usually incorrect technique! Wrong technique followed up with incorrect coaching adjustments will just take a workable thrower and bury them. Don’t let bad habits be your lasting legacy! Let’s find where in your throw needs attention, THEN learn how to fix it – for good!
Learn The Most Effective Drills, How To Do Them Properly, And Why They Dramatically Improve Your Results
Aaah, yes drills! At the TCR™ camps, you will be doing lots of these… and you’ll be learning the RIGHT DRILLS FOR MAX RESULTS!!! I can’t tell you how many YouTube videos I see with drills that make zero sense, or do nothing to improve the athlete, let alone transfer to big throws. Executing the right drills, the right way is the key to every championship thrower!
Fix Common Throwing Mistakes- FAST!
Let’s face it… this is probably why you’re reading all this info about this camp in the first place, right? Throwing the shot put and the discus is not easy, but it sure is AWESOME! It’s even better as you keep getting better and better with each training phase. Over the years, while training throwers and coaches from all over the world, I see many of the same mistakes. So, let’s identify them and wipe them out!

Coaches | youth track, high school, collegiate and parents who are awesome and volunteer their time to coach
We welcome anyone who wants to learn how to train smarter and throw farther!
We will break for a light lunch.
We recommend that all camp attendees bring:
A snack- fruit and veggies work best.
Lunch – keep it light and healthy. Heavy foods and lots of sun = no fun 🙁
Water…. lots of water…. no, seriously, bring ice cold water. Houston’s humidity takes no prisoners!
SHOES AND IMPLEMENTS:
Throwing shoes are HIGHLY recommended for participants… Coaches too!
We will be doing a lot of drills, movements, and throwing. Coaches also will be asked to do the drills and apply the TCR™ system. This speeds up the learning process and launches your throwing progress.
If possible, please bring implements and make sure they are clearly marked with your name, or school name. The more implements, the more throws and that equals RESULTS!
