Track and Field to Host Shot Put Clinic

Valparaiso head track and field coach Ryan Moore announced today that he and Olympian assistant coach Tom Pukstys would be hosting a shot put clinic at Valparaiso University on Sunday, December 7.

Putkstys, a six-time U.S. javelin champion, competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics and was an assistant coach for the U.S. at the 2012 games. The clinic will serve as a training ground to improve your throw through an intense learning experience.

“In my opinion anytime you have an Olympic athlete and coach to learn from you sit down and listen,” Moore said. “Tom Pukstys has been involved in the sport of track and field as both an athlete and a coach and I am thrilled to partner with him. Bringing a clinic to Valparaiso University is a long time mission of mine. Being able to work with some of the best high school athletes throughout the mid-west will make for a great opportunity for Tom and I to share what we have learned coaching the shot put over the years and provide athletes the chance to experience Valparaiso University.”

The camp will take place from 1-5 pm at the ARC and is open to any and all entrants. Spots are limited and can be reserved by contacting Moore or Pukstys. For more information, visit the Men’s or Women’s Track and Field page at
