About the Clinic
John Frazier will be the Clinician. He is the throws coach for the Mens and Womens Volunteer Track and Field Team

Athletes Frazier has coached have achieved a total of 41 All-America honors and won four NCAA Championships. He was named 2005 USTCA National and West Region Assistant Coach of the Year for Throws. At UT, Frazier has directed athletes to seven All-America honors, seven SEC titles and three NCAA regional crowns. He also directed Arizona's Rachel Varner to Pac-10 discus titles in 2004 and 2006, an NCAA West Regional title in 2004. Frazier helped UA's Adam Kuehl chart runner-up efforts in the discus at the Pac-10 and NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2006. He also tutored Wildcat Sean Shields to third-place NCAA Indoor and Outdoor finishes in the shot and a sixth-place effort outdoors in the discus in 2006. Frazier guided Shields (shot put, '02) and Kuehl (discus, '03) to U.S. Junior Championships and Shields to an American junior record (and world junior record) in the shot. While at University of Florida, Frazier led Emily Carlsten to a runner-up finish in the javelin at the 2000 NCAA Outdoor meet and to a third-place effort at the U.S. Olympic Trials. Recently, Garland Porter threw the 35lbs weight 80ft 1/2in to become the sixth best competitor of all time in the world for that event. This spring Garland was 3rd at the 2012 USA Indoor Championships in the weight throw.
