2014-15 in Review

The 2014-15 campaign was another exciting one for the Project. Javelin Clinic We trained in the fall at East Stroudsburg, during the winter at Coach Gorski’s “Field of Dreams” in Chapel Hill, in July at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., then finally had a fantastic weekend last month at the first American Javelin Festival back in East Stroudsburg.

The list of achievements for our throwers this past season is long and impressive.

Many more of the best U.S. javelinists of the past few years have participated in the Project, including 2013 Pan-American Junior and 2013 and 2014 USATF Junior champion Megan Glasmann and 2014 NCAA runner-up Avione Allgood.

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.
