Athletics RICHMOND recommends that athletes aged 5-11 years do the standing discus and athletes aged 12+ years may do the spin

Discus is all about long levers

The Discus should come off the index finger (practise rolling discus)

Get the feel of the discus

“Man bag, Scarecrow, corkscrew” teach the kids this phrase.

Man bag - swing the throwing arm back and forth like have a handbag

Scarecrow – both arms out to side

Corkscrew – twist around, unwind and release

Back to front and low to high

Exit out the back of circle.
