Coach Dawson's Page 2012 #1 - Long Toss Program

LONG TOSS PROGRAM- Make ten throws at the maximum distance, then work back toward your partner. These are minimum distances, so you may throw further if your arm is ready. Use good throwing mechanics, and please make sure to take a crow hop, step behind, or shuffle before throwing.   Your distances/velocity should increase for each week.   After long toss, pitchers should throw change ups at the long distances to insure same arm velocity.
