(January 2014 update)
The NSAF's Project Kultan Keihas (Javelin Gold) is in the midst of its third year, with the 2013 domestic fall/winter clinics completed and more to come in 2014! The Project's elite athletes, having trained twice in Chapel Hill in October and December, are looking forward to an exciting spring/summer 2014, which will include competition at New Balance Nationals Outdoor (and likely Great Southwest), a tentative final domestic clinic in San Diego, possible World Junior competition for eligible athletes and, finally, the international clinic and competitions in Finland July 30-August 8.
Our current athletes are some of the nation's most accomplished young high schoolers returning for the 2014 season, and many of the best U.S. javelinists of the past few years have participated in the Project, including 2013 national girls' leader and Pan-American Junior champion (and current Stanford freshman) -- Megan Glasmann.
The ongoing goal of this project is to identify emerging elite 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 will be available to any coaches and athletes who attend the camp in addition to the selected and sponsored throwers in this program. In a first of its kind program in the U.S., Project Kultan Keihas brings the top US and Finnish javelin coaches together to provide a level of understanding and education about javelin technique and training never before available in the US.
The clinic is open to any interested coaches and athletes for observation and interaction with the above coaching staff. Coaches and athletes are encouraged to film, ask questions and generally be involved so they can gain maximum benefit from this event. Further details about this first camp can be found on “Events” page of Klub Keihas website as well as this web site.
The clinic is open to all athletes, coaches and interested parties. Registration details will be available in Summer, 2014.
Travel details will be announced in Summer, 2014.
