with Harlis Meaders,
Florida State University Associate Head Coach

Harlis Meaders breaks the discus throw down into four parts: the entry, heel-toe, catch position and the alley and shares the drills and tips that he uses with great effectiveness at FSU to reinforce each part. A simple line drill is demonstrated and is a crucial part of fundamental footwork. By using a board in the circle, Coach Meaders exhibits the details of discus position and footwork in a 1-2-3 progression. Footwork and hand position on the discus allows maximum orbit distance. Discus placement means that the discus stays well behind the hip. A javelin drill is essential for hip turn throughout the throw. Another drill, the 2-3 Position Drill, moves the hips from a parallel to perpendicular position while the discus stays in the same position. Balance and discus position is the focus of the Softball Drop Drill. In addition, Meaders covered two throwing methods; the wide sweep and the run.
