For our third Project Javelin Gold clinic of the 2019-20 season, we will be returning to Baton Rouge and the campus of Louisiana State University -- where we have trained several times before! It's familiar ground for Head Coach Tom Pukstys, who trained here during his Olympic career, and we always appreciate the tremendous help during clinics down here from our "Host Coach," Rob Woosley. Louisiana is a hotbed for prep javelin throwing and we look forward to athletes from around the region and the country joining us! We've had two awesome clinics so far this season in Sioux Falls (this past August) and Hoover, AL (mid-November) and look forward to another great weekend of teaching, training and throwing!
The clinic is open to all athletes, coaches and interested parties. The entry fee for the full weekend is $250 (with a 20 percent discount to groups of 5 or more - includes a t-shirt and lunch on Friday and Saturday). To get the group discount, you must register as a group. We are also offering Saturday-only (Feb 15) registration for a fee of $125 (includes a t-shirt and lunch). REGISTER HERE.

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 International 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.
NOTE TO COLLEGIATE COACHES
We welcome all NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA College coaches to attend our clinics.
