Shot Put Release Hand Position Video Tutorial

Shot Put Release: Can You Pick The Error?

This video is based on the recent Coaching Young Athletes post: Shot Put Release: Can You Pick The Error?

It is a narrated slide show presentation lasting less than 10 minutes, covering shot put release technique, errors, cues & drills.

This resource is for athletics coaches, school teachers and parents who want to know a bit more about how to help kids release a shot effectively.

I highly recommend that the article Shot Put Release: Can You Pick The Error? be read in conjunction with this video.


Hopefully you are now able to:

  1. Recognise a common shot put release error.
  2. Understand some features of an effective shot put release action.
  3. Use some cues and drills to teach or correct a shot put release action.

Do you have any tips that can help a young athlete measure a high jump run-up?
