2017 SEASON UPDATE

Meanwhile, the 2016-17 season for the NSAF's Project Javelin Gold -- the 6th since the inception of the program in 2011 -- has been a great one so far.  We've had outstanding clinics at East Stroudsburg (Oct. '16) and Baton Rouge (Jan. '17) and now the competitive season is underway for our current athletes: Liam Christensen, Roman Mitchell, Meghan Owens, Ty Hampton, Lillian Hill, Skylar Ciccolini, Gavin Darcy, Joe Nizich and Zechariah Blake.

Six of our athletes have already hit PRs this year and the state meet season has begun for those for whom the javelin is a state association event. On April 26-28, five of our athletes competed in the Penn Relays, with Liam defending his 2016 title on the boys' side and Meghan and Skylar placing 3-4 with PR or near-PR efforts on the girls' side.

Soon it will be on to the post-season: New Balance Nationals Outdoor, USATF Youth and Junior competitions, USATF and AAU Junior Olympics and -- of course -- the 3rd annual American JavFest in East Stroudsburg on July 7-9.


OUR GOALS

The ongoing goal of this project is to identify emerging elite youth and junior javelin talent and provide them with the best technical and training methods available, and to maximize their development to international level throwers in order represent the United States in Olympic/World Championship events.

State-of-the-art coaching and training instruction is available to any coaches and athletes who attend the camps, in addition to the selected and sponsored throwers in this program. In a first-of-its-kind program in the U.S., Project Javelin Gold brings the top U.S. and Finnish javelin coaches together to provide a level of understanding and education about javelin technique and training never before available in the U.S.

The clinic is open to any interested coaches and athletes for observation and interaction with our coaching staff. Coaches and athletes are encouraged to film, ask questions and generally be involved so they can gain maximum benefit from the Project. More details can be found on “Events” page of the Klub Keihas website as well as this web site.
 

2015-16 in Review

The 2015-16 campaign was again an outstanding one for the Project Javelin Gold. We trained in the fall at East Stroudsburg, during the winter for the first time at LSU in Baton Rouge, then in late June and early July in Finland -- returning to the Pihtipudas Javelin Carnival for the first time since 2013 and also training in Kuortane.

Here is a list of some of the top achievements for our throwers this past season:
