Coach Frontier


Madison Throws Club had a special visit from USA Javelin Thrower Alicia Deshasier. Alicia has placed 3rd at the past 2 U.S. National Track and Field Championships and is training to make the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team. MTC's Kailee Kamps learned from one of the best in the world. Thanks Alicia! and Good Luck! Come back and visit again soon.

John Godina - 4 time World Champion

I had an amazing opportunity to attend the John Godina Coaches Clinic Saturday, July 2. Learning from a 4-time World Champion is humbling and awesome at the same time. I got lots of new things that I want to share with Madison Throws Club.

Athletes interested in working with John have the opportunity as he returns to Wisconsin for the July 31 Athletes Clinic. GO to and register online.


I have been fortunate enough to work with some incredible athletes while coaching at Memorial High School and Madison Throws Club. Now 9 WIAA STATE CHAMPIONS in the throws in all. Last week 3 of the most recently crowned champions were working hard in the same circle. Pictured above: Kailee Kamps, Belemont '12 was the 2010 D3 Discus Champion, KeKe Burks, LaFollette '12 2011 D1 Discus, and Heather Clankie, Brodhead
'12 2011 D2 Discus Champion. Keep pushing each other girls! and Throw Far!
