The NSAF is excited to announce the return of Project Javelin Gold to the Sioux Falls, S.D. for our late-summer clinic with Sanford Sports Science Institute (SSSI). This is the 4th annual clinic we have held with our partners from SSSI, offering fantasic facilities to train outdoors (Howard Wood Field), indoors (Sanford Fieldhouse) and to hold classroom sessions (Sanford Pentagon).
We are extremely grateful to SSSI for helping support our Podium Projects. The Project Javelin Gold clinic will be held cocurrently with the NSAF's Project Triple Jump clinic, as it has been since SSSI became partners with the NSAF in 2017. We hope you'll join us to kick off the 2021-22 season.
The clinic is open to all athletes, coaches and interested parties. The entry fee for the full weekend is $195 (with a 20 percent discount to groups of 5 or more). To get the group discount, you must register as a group. We are also offering Saturday-only (Aug. 7) registration for a fee of $95.

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.
