Welcome to the 2019 American JavFest

The NSAF is looking forward to hosting its 5th annual American JavFest on Friday-Sunday, June 28-29, 2019 at East Stroudsburg South High School in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

As has been the case during most of the previous JavFests, the weekend plan is to include competition at every age and ability level, plus great teaching and educational opportunities. Elites in past JavFests have successful chased qualifying marks that enabled them to join Team USA for those meets.

The middle day, Saturday, is typically "Javelin School Day," with an opportunity to learn from same of the world's best coaches in a clinic environment. Friday or Saturday night, meanwhile, often features the immensely popular Roundtable Panel/Open Discussion -- a chance to learn, hear amazing stories and ask questions of these same mentors.

The JavFest is intended to be a stateside version of the great Pihtipudas Javelin Carnival in Finland.  It is meant to share the joys of the javelin with throwers of all ages. The unique event allows athletes, coaches and fans of the sport to be fully engaged educationally, socially and competitively.

2019 Entry Information

The clinic is open to all athletes, coaches and interested parties. The entry fee is $40, and includes the Saturday clinic and a t-shirt. REGISTER HERE.
