Seeking experienced personal field coach

Postby Guest » Sat May 24, 2003 6:24 am

I am a mother of a high school freshman who is interested in working with a personal field coach. She does well in shot discus and javelin but has a real love of javelin. We live in central NJ Any suggestions?

I would suggest you contact Sally Harmon, formerly the women's throws coach at the University of Oregon. She is a former national javelin champion, has coached three national champions and 17 all-Americans. She lost her job do to a merger of the men's and women's track programs. If you could find a way to work with her, you could not do better. You could probably still contact her through the University.

Try contacting Shore A.C.
They are headquarted in West Long Branch. When I was a young thrower (back in the day) I joined during my junior year in high school. The exposure to and interaction with experienced and knowlegable throwers of all ages was great.
They have a website with contact info.
