Jim Aikens is one of the most successful high school throws coaches in Illinois history. After coaching for many years at Fremd, he has taken over a nascent program at Burlington Central.
Jim will go over his basic practice plan and the drills that he uses on a daily basis to try to build a solid foundation for his throwers. He will explain the how the practice plan fits into the bigger picture of the season. He will also go over some concepts and ideas that he has formulated about the throws over the years. He will also talk about the interesting things involved in coming from a highly evolved and successful throws program to trying to build a program from scratch.
