To fit the schedules of the elite throwers (training for the Olympic Trials) who so graciously mentor our kids each year, the Chicagoland Throws event we have held has been relocated to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, will be now called "Iron Wood Throws," and will take place Saturday, June 4. The beautiful lakeside community, 30 miles east of Spokane, WA, is home of the prestigious Iron Wood Thrower Development Camp. Dozens of the nation's top throwers have trained or competed there during the past 27 years. Meet/camp director Jarred Rome was a 2008-2012 Olympian in the discus and the preps invited to join us this year will again have a first-class experience competing side-by-side with many of the top USATF athletes.
We will contest the shot put, discus and hammer this year (no javelin) and the NSAF will invite and fund 3 athletes per event, per gender. Check out the camp details HERE and stay tuned for more details.
