Hammer Throwing in Southend 






Strength and accuracy – With a few twists

The hammer throw is a showcase of an athlete's power, technique and precision, with the goal of achieving maximum distance by generating rotational force.

Our hammer throwing in Southend involves both working on the fundamentals of the movement, while building explosiveness to help generate rotational power and fine-tune their throwing technique.

Keeping training safe for your child

Safety is paramount with the hammer throw, and so we take things slowly when coaching our athletes. Younger athletes will use lighter hammers to develop their technique, avoid strain and build confidence, while experienced athletes will gradually progress to heavier hammers to build power and distance.
