Coach Luke Sullivan

Luke Sullivan's Arizona Performance Throws started as an effort to give back to the sport that benefited Luke so much.  He began competing at the age of twelve, and would go on to be a 4 time All-American at UCLA, and qualify for 3 Olympic Trials in the discus.  During that time Luke was assisted by many people and multiple organizations.  The transition from competitor to coach came easily. Since his retirement from active throwing in 2008 he has worked with athletes from age 7 to 70 with great success! Luke's clinics focus on proper throwing techniques in the discus and shot put and involve concentrated individualized analysis of each athlete's form.

It covers grip and release, as well as several progressions starting with the stand throw and ending with the full turn. Included are over 10 drills for each event, assisting both the beginning and more advanced throwers. The breakdown of drills and the simplicity of explanations make this DVD a great tool for high school athletes and coaches.
