Just Threw it teams up with EWP

The Elite Women Project teamed up with Just Threw it to put on a QB clinic for six female Quarterbacks.

The all-day session at Warwick University included both practical and classroom sessions led by Great Britain’s Ryan Baker and former Leicester Eagle and multiple national champion, John Pimperton.

The event was a massive success with all players of varying experience making significant progress. Asked about the session, Jessica Critchley of the Warwick Wolverines found it “Extremely helpful. It was really good to be taught the correct technique in detail and the reasons behind it”.

Baker was also very positive about the day, "I thought the Elite QB's did an outstanding job today. We threw a lot at them, both in the classroom and on the field, but they seemed to really embrace the focuses we tried to get over and had a very productive day. I was extremely impressed with their work ethic and thirst for information. That translated into their performances throughout the day. I hope that they enjoyed the day as much as we did and can carry some of our coaching points into their future development. Based on what I saw today, the future looks very bright for the women's game."

It is hoped that the EWP and JTI will continue with further clinics over time. The next EWP event will be a closed practice on May 25th at Royal Holloway University, when The Elite make their final preparations for their ground-breaking debut at the Big Bowl in Frankfurt.
