ALTIS Joint Clinic COACHING STAFF

 

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.
