WHY CONSIDER THROWING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO FOOTBALL

The Shot Put, Discus, Hammer Throw and Javelin present healthy alternatives to football for young, strong boys. The “Throws” develop speed, strength, and Power, but don’t subject you to the long term damaging effects of a repeated blow to the head.

POSSIBLE COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

Most division 1,2 and 3 colleges, as well as NAIA Universities, offer full or partial scholarships for Track and Field. Since fewer young men and women participate in the Throws, there is less competition for scholarships. High-level high school throwers are highly sought after by colleges around the country. Starting throwers at an early age in a club that specializes in teaching the “Throws” can ensure your son or daughter will maximize their potential.
