Darts coach: useful training aids
There are two training aids I use which stems from the way I was taught to play. In this post I will outline the first.
In the beginning, my coach would close the cabinet doors on his board, leaving a gap of an inch….before reminding me he had never hit the doors in 30 years of practicing.
I credit this practice method for a lot of my success, as it formulated a lot of the principles I practice and teach today.
After practicing this method at my coaches place for a period, I practiced a similar routine using a piece of string run down the centre of the 20.
This was my sole focus for a season, although it wouldn’t be until several years later that I gained control over my line.
Using the string, there are 3 points of focus in the technique that may be beneficial to gaining control over your line.
- Your body position must allow your throw to draw back and follow through along the line without feeling forced at any point.
- Your fingers should release with all controlling fingers running down the line during the throw, with the thumb and index finger running down the line at the release point.
- There is a point behind your hand (where radius bone connects to the wrist) that can control the line when it becomes a focus point in conjunction with the line. Keeping the point of the wrist in your minds eye while throwing can help gain a level of control….though not everyone can visualise the connection.
Give it a try!

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
