To Be Determined!
"Experience how world-class throwers train!"
2 Throwing Sessions Per Day
During each throwing session we will receive direct instructional coaching on your technique. You will take 30-40 full throws, honing in on tangible improvements that you can make. No endless hours of bodyweight drills!
Olympic Lifting Technique
We will teach you the basics of the Olympic Lifts (the snatch, clean, and jerk) if you don't know them, or fine-tune your technique if you already incorporate them into your lifting!
Full Strength Building Workouts
Each day we will put you through one of our best strength building workouts. We will alternate between upper body and lower body lifts, making you feel the burn but still ready to attack the next throwing session.
Video Review of Your Technique
Dane will do in-person technical analyses of your throws. He will break down your technique and give you cues to work through during your next session!
Special Strength Exercises
We will show you our best special strength exercises that combine technique development with strength building that will directly corelate to further throws!
What is the best way to recover from hard lifts and long throwing sessions? We will break down how we approach mobility and the huge impact it can have on your throws.
We use the term "lecture" loosely. Dane does not make his presentations boring. However, you will learn exactly what it takes to become champion and achieve more than you dreamed possible as a thrower.
Add 5 Feet In Days
What can just a few days do for your throwing distance? Just ask the throwers who PR'd by 5 feet or more at the competition after our last camp!
Getting a different perspective on your technique with hands on coaching can make the difference between making the same mistakes for the next 6 months or fixing them now starting to PR again!

Deciding between the
Spin or Glide?

Where is the camp located?
Do you provide housing?
Do you provide meals?
Although we usually provide a few meals, due to COVID-19 we will not be sharing food at our camp. Thus you will be responsible for all meals. We encourage you to pack a lunch and other snacks to recover throughout the day. There are places to get take out food within 5-10 minutes of the gym. You will have an hour lunch break every day to eat.
When should I arrive on the first day?
Arrive for check-in at 9:30am the first day. Come ready to get right into your first throws session!
How long are the days?
The days will last from 9:30am arrival until 4:00-4:30pm departure. You are free to find something to eat and relax in the evening. Believe us, you will be ready for bed by the end of the day!
What if there is bad weather?
We throw in the rain! Not always... if there are very bad storms we have a place inside where we can throw into a net. However, if there is light rain be prepared to get wet!
Should I bring my own implements?
We have plenty of implements for you to throw. However, if you enjoy throwing your own implements, you are more than welcome to bring them!
What else do I need to bring?
A water bottle (VERY IMPORTANT to stay hydrated)
Throwing shoes and lifting shoes (if you have them)
Other throwing/lifting gear if you have them (wrist wraps, throwing glove)
Packed lunch and snacks
Change of clothes and towel (you will get sweaty...)
What if COVID-19 prevents travel or forces the camp to cancel?
Currently we are being optimistic that we will be able to hold the camp at the end of June. However, if we are forced to cancel the camp due to restrictions in place by the state, or if you are unable to travel due to safety risks, we will refund 100% of the cost of the camp.
Is there an age restriction for the camp?
The minimum age for the camp is 12 years old. It is typical for us to have a range of ages and levels of development to come out and throw. If you throw in middle school, high school, college, or post-collegiately you are welcome. Also if you have never thrown before or you have thrown at the elite level for years we want you to come out either way!
Do I have to pay separately for the meet at the end of the camp?
You DO NOT have to pay separately for the competition at the end of our camp. It is included in the camp fee. The competition is optional for campers. If you have a long drive and need to head home that is no problem, however we do find it is beneficial to immediately apply what you have learned in a competition setting.
Our county (Berks) in Pennsylvania is in the "green" stage which permits the holding of summer camps. However, we will still be following guidelines to reduce the risk as much as possible to prevent the spread of the disease and ensure the safety of all campers and staff. These precautions are based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as described in full HERE:
For all campers and employees: if you are feeling sick, please stay home. If you become sick do not attend the camp, we will refund the camp cost in full.
If you have come in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 recently, please stay home and we will refund the camp cost.
Make handwashing and hand sanitizing a regular occurrence. We will have hand sanitizer available, but please bring your own if you are able.
Although we will not require you to wear a mask, you are more than welcome to wear one if you prefer to.
After you are finished using any piece of equipment, you must wipe it down with a disinfectant wipe.
The weight room at our location is open-air, with large garage doors on both sides of the training area allowing air to pass through.
If you have other questions about what precautions we are taking, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
