Arete Throws Nation® is the leading Shot Put and Discus Throws Club in the USA. Each year, ATN™ produces consistent and measurable results for throwers in shot put, glide shot, and discus throws.
With over 132+ Championship titles since 2013, and just as many Championship medalists in League, Division, State and National competitions…
… the ATN™ Shot Put and Discus Throws Club of Phoenix, Arizona is where you need to be if you want to truly THROW FAR!
PRACTICE DOESN’T MAKE PERFECT…
PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.
Most noteworthy, all throwers in the ATN™ program are developed and coached using the Throwing Chain Reaction™. Created by founder, head coach, and “technique obsessed”, Coach Erik Johnson, this 6 Pillar Training System™ for Shot Put, Glide Shot and Discus throws allows athletes to learn how to throw far, correct any technical hurdles, and start launching big throws fast!
The TCR™ has developed many throwers to promising collegiate careers in some of the most sought out Universities in the country, and consequently, many post collegiate throwers to National & Olympic level Championship meets, and Master throwers to dominate in their age groups.
In order to develop into an elite thrower, there are simply no shortcuts…
… hence, training frequency & intensity are a must for one to ACHIEVE ARETE!
It should go without saying that the more time and energy invested, the better and more dramatic the results.
Since each athlete is a unique combination of talent and athleticism, results will depend on the 5 Intangibles of Throwing Success:
Body Awareness & Structural impact on learning.
Previous instruction and current technical habits
Training Frequency- how many hours the athlete puts in will directly impact the results.
These 5 variables result in a different rate of success for each thrower in the TCR™ program.
THE ATN™ CLUB THROWS PROGRAM INCLUDES …
An Elite Level Training Calendar
Off-Season (Fall), Pre-Season (Winter), In-Season, Post Season, and Championship Cycle
Throws Technique Assessment
Every new athlete will have a preliminary throws evaluation in order to identify and document any weaknesses in technique, and level of experience for placement in the program.
All new athletes will have a lifting evaluation to assess technique, knowledge, and experience for placement in the program
TCR™ System Training
The ATN™ Throws Club Program trains all throwers using the TCR™ 6 Pillar Training System
Strength Training For Throwers
ATN™ Club Strength program is designed for throwers, not body builders. Each lift and exercise is purposely executed to biomechanically impact a thrower’s technique and directly transfer into the ring
ATN™ top secret weapon and one of the biggest reasons ATN™ club athletes & online TCR™ members have consistently dominated each year!
General Nutrition Advice
Greatly overlooked, yet a MAJOR factor to any athlete’s success. If you want to win championship meets, you must eat like it.
All ATN™ Club athletes automatically get their training progress posted on ATN™ Social media sites for College recruiting purposes… and recognition for all their hard work!

Thank you! Talk soon.
I’m Coach Erik Johnson, and I thought I’d take a moment to tell you a little about myself.
I started competing in Track and Field at 10yrs old.It was field day Aire Libre Middle School in Phoenix, AZ and I had to run in a race.As I ran, a bigger and faster kid, pushed me down and I fell.Determined to kick this kid’s a$$, I got up and ran as fast as my legs could carry me and won the race!(I believe there were a few choice words spoken on the winner’s block between him and me)
A woman, by the name of Illene Molinski, saw my grit on the track and approached my father and me. She suggested I join a track and field club her husband ran called- Paradise Valley Athletic Track Club- Go PVAC!read more…
ATN™ has over 132+ Championship Titles (…and growing). Through our College Prep throws training, we have coached several talented athletes to achieve marks that have landed them scholarships to some of the most sought after Universities in the country!
Each athlete that joins ATN™ is coached as an individual, and not a number! We assess and analyze each thrower’s strength and ability levels and design a program specifically structured to achieve the goals desired. Coach Johnson is always available to any thrower’s -and parents of the athlete- questions concerning training, requirements for a college entry, pro level programs, or master level program design.
