Meet Your Coach
Coach Matt Ellis - Owner - Elite Throws Coaching
Coach Matt is the owner of Elite Throws Coaching, the Elite Throws Camps, and Primal Athlete Training Center. Like a lot of athletes who might read this, Coach Matt started throwing in high school. He had great coaches but no one to really show him what to do in the weight room. When Matt got to college, he had great coaches in the weight room, but no throws coach. Coach Matt wanted to make sure throwers always had a place to turn to get the throwing help that they needed and resources to continue learning about this great sport.
Since starting Elite Throws Coaching and Primal Athlete Training Center in 2010, Coach Matt has held overnight camps and weekend clinics all around the country including PA, NJ, MA, RI, CT, OH, WI, MI, WV, and MN. Matt has coached 17 Rhode Island shot put and discus state champions and has had multiple athletes place at the New England and National high school championships.

Why Attend One Day Camps?
SHOT AND DISCUS ONLY!
Let's face facts...Not a lot of high schools have dedicated shot put and discus coaches. Many coaches are part time or spread too thin coaching throws, jumps, sprints, and other events. At our one day camps, you get top coaching in shot put and discus only. We don't include a lot of fluff or fillers. The entire 7 hour day is only for shot put and discus.
HIGH SCHOOL AGE THROWERS ONLY!
Another great thing about our camps is that they are designed for high school throwers. This camp is perfect if you are a Freshman thrower just starting out or a Senior thrower graduating high school this June! Our one day camps were created for the high school thrower. There won't be high level, 20-something year old college throwers showing up and there won't be younger elementary school ages either.
Ages 14-18 are welcome to attend.
ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME!
It doesn't matter if you are a beginner throwing for the first time or if you are a state champion looking to get noticed by college coaches, you will see major improvements by attending this camp. In the past, we've had brand-new beginner throwers who never even held a shot or discus leave camp throwing great distances with confidence. We help all levels so don't feel like you have to be a pro to sign up! Our coaches are skilled teaching all levels of throwers from beginner to advanced!
DRILLS, DRILLS, AND MORE DRILLS!!
After our one day camps, we want you leaving the school with a head full of drills and ideas that you can use during your entire season! Nothing is worse than going to a camp, hopping in the circle first thing in the morning, throwing with your regular technique, and having a coach sit there and tell you what you did wrong. I want to teach you how to do it right! You'll leave camp with a wealth of knowledge that you can take home with you and use the next week at practice.
You get everything listed above, a full 7 hours of coaching in a small group of throwers, lunch provided to you, great facilities at the school, and an indoor area in case of bad weather.
The Cost is ONLY $89
In Addition, Attendees Also Get 10% Off All Items Sold on the
Elite Throws Coaching website for 12 Months!
That includes Nelco products, Programs, and Online Coaching!
All Camp Info Including Directions, What to Bring, Schedule, Frequently Asked Questions, Receipts, and Any Additional Announcements Will Be Sent to the Email Address You Entered when You Registered.
Please Make Sure to Enter an Email Address You Use and Check Daily.
REAL QUICK BEFORE YOU GO!!
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for checking out the camp and getting signed up. I love coaching athletes and helping to give athletes the opportunity to work with elite level coaches from around the country. If you have any questions at all about the camp before getting signed up, please let me know by emailing me directly at
LEGAL MUMBO JUMBO
This is the stuff that the lawyers and advisors tell me I need to put down here! Please read carefully!
I know this has been mentioned a few times on this page, but this camp does sell out every year and will sell out again this year. This is not some marketing ploy or strategy to oversell the camp. We are limited by space. If registration is full, you do have the option to be put on a waiting list. If someone drops out of the camp, people on the list will be contacted in the order they registered to fill that spot.
LAST DAY TO CANCEL
The absolute last day to cancel and receive a refund is January 31st. After January 31st, your registration fee can not be refunded to you. The reason for this is simple. I need to provide the school with an accurate list of names of athletes attending, let the pizza people know how many are attending, and hire any additional coaches or training staff to accommodate. I also need to let the camp insurance company know an accurate amount of campers attending. This info needs to be in to the school by February 1st. We can always add to the number but we need to have that number by February 1st. After that, no refunds will be issued and you are locked in. Just like a concert, if you buy a ticket, the concert happens whether you show up or not!
IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER...
Elite Throws Camp does have use of the Keyser High School indoor gym in case of inclement weather. This is a rain or shine camp. Please make sure to bring rain gear with you.
