START LISTS/FLIGHTS -- ENTRIES

 

May 24, 2022 -- We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the 8th Annual American JavFest on Friday, July 8 - Saturday, July 9 at East Stroudsburg HS, in East Stroudsburg, PA.  The weekend will include Novice, High School Emerging Elite and High School Championship competition on Friday, then Open and Elite competition on Saturday.  

Registration for the meet is $40 per athlete and can be completed HERE (https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/meet/462144/register).

The Meet Info page includes current qualifying guidelines, meet schedule and more.

The weekend now includes a NEW separate clinic, also at East Stroudsburg HS, hosted by most of the same great group of coaches that help host and run the meet. The clinic runs Saturday morning, July 9, from 9am - noon, prior to the day's competition.  Registration is $50 and is open to all throwers, ages 11 and up.  Please go HERE to read more about the clinic and register for it.

The spirit of the American JavFest has always been to include competition at every age and ability level, plus some great teaching and educational opportunities. Elites in past JavFests have successful chased national and international standards as they sought to qualify for Team USA in Olympic, World and Pan-American competition. NSAF Project Javelin co-founder Jeff Gorski started the American JavFest many years ago and, thanks to Barry Krammes, Tom Pukstys and others, it continues today.  The current version of the meet was launched in 2015.

The JavFest is the NSAF's stateside version of the great Pihtipudas Javelin Carnival in Finland, sharing 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.

Here are the FULL RESULTS for the 2021 American JavFest!
