DC Scandal Throwing Drill

 Quick post-season update

Sorry that I left you all hanging after my latest post.  The short story is that, no my team Renegade did not make it to nationals.  We lost on universe in the game to go to the game to go.  Disappointing, of course.  In our region there were about six well matched teams vying for two spots.  Both spots went to Philly teams:  AMP and Termite’s Entourage.

So it is officially post-season for me but I am still a practice player for Scandal.  This coming weekend will be my last practice with them before they go to the big show.  Scandal is a great group of women.  I have learned a ton and laughed a lot with them this season.  I am very much looking forward to following their progress at Nationals.


Learning from the Best

An excellent drill for working on your low release breakmark throws.  Explained here by captain Allison Maddux with some help from Opi:

    Hey Melissa,

    Thanks for the great video. I captain a league team and my players are always looking to improve but with a lack of touring experience we don’t know a lot of drills that we can do to get better. Videos like this are definitely a great help so that we can see how to better execute!!

    Thanks again,


  • Thanks Craig! Hopefully we’ll have another drill for you next week!
