More About Coach Ted

I have coached shot put and discus for the last fifteen years. I was the girls' throws coach at Rock Island High School in Rock Island Illinois for two years. Then I was a volunteer throws coach at Iowa City West High in Iowa City for four years. Since then I have coached independently for the last nine years. I have coached individuals as early as the fifth grade to athletes who were in college. I have coached three high school All-Americans in the throws. I have coached two athletes who were three-time state champions in the throws, one two-time state champion in the throws, four state champions in the throws and numerous state medalists. I have coached two three-time Drake Relays high school champions, two one-time Drake Relays champions and many Drake Relays runners-up and medalists in the throws. I have coached one Drake Relays runner-up at the college level in the throws. I have enjoyed working with any individual at any age who is interested in improving.

I did not compete as an athlete in either high school or college. My daughter was a thrower at Rock Island High School in 2002 and she asked me to come and coach there since they did not have a throws coach for the girls. I learned to be a coach by watching videos and reading books and from my own personal experience coaching which continues today.

We start with a warm up session of some simple drills. After the warm up, we work on technique. There is a progression of drills and throwing techniques we will go through to get to a full throw in discus and shot put. If an individual is an elite thrower we will throw more full throws during a session. If an individual is just beginning to learn to throw we will probably work on techniques which lead up to a full throw. Each individual is at a different level of expertise so their session will be different. Our goal is to get to a full throw and then improve on it. In a typical session we will throw 70+ throws in discus and 40 throws in shot put. There will be homework assigned at each session. There is a lot of verbal feedback during my workouts and my workouts are "fun".

I have enjoyed working with coach Ted. He's very personable and definitely knows his throws. He helped right away to correct a number of flaws in my technique and gave me suggestions for drills and types and number of specific training throws to work on. I recommend coach Ted.

Had a session with Coach Ted. He combines a vast knowledge of throwing but is funny enough that the sessions are fun. Coach Ted is extremely patient and we will be going back for sure

Coach Ted is an excellent throws coach. He is dedicated to the sport and it shows. My daughter has learned a lot in a short time span and looks forward to more training sessions. I would recommend Coach Ted for any skill level looking to improve their throws.

My daughter just started working with Ted and we are very impressed by the knowledge he has. Not only has she learned a lot from him but he makes learning and practicing fun! I am looking forward to watching her reach the next level in throwing. Highly recommend Coach Ted!

Coach Ted is a great coach for my middle schooler! She was excited to work with him again after the first session. He really knows what he's doing and I'm sure we will work with him through her high school years!

When I brought Leah for Ted to coach I was just hoping she would be competitive, I didn't expect her to take second place at state.
