For our second Project Javelin Gold clinic of the 2019-20 season, we will be holding our first clinic in Alabama, at the outstanding facilities at Hoover HS in Hoover (AL) -- a suburb of Birmingham and the new home of our Head Coach, Tom Pukstys! Alabama is one of the states for which the javelin is a HS state meet championship event and we look forward to athletes from the Southeast and around the country joining us! We enjoyed our first clinic of the new school year August 8-11, in Sioux Falls, S.D. with our partners from the Sanford Sports Science Institute, and we also plan to convene again in Baton Rouge in January, 2020!
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 (Nov. 16) registration for a fee of $95. 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.
