The USA Javelin Project Winter Clinic is set for Feb. 26-27, 2021 on the campus of LSU in Baton Rouge, LA. NSAF Project Javelin Head Coach Tom Pukstys started the USA Javelin Project in 2019 to provide training and support for those reaching for Team USA Olympic and World Championship berths. Many top American javelin throwers are now training full time or attending clinics with Coach Tom and his staff, and athletes of all ages and abilities are invited to this clinic. The NSAF is not yet able to plan and host traditional Project Javelin Gold clinics due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19,
