The Iron Wood Thrower Development Camp offers 'world-class'
instruction in the four throwing events of Track and Field: Discus,
Hammer, Javelin, and Shot Put.
Whether our campers are just beginning their throwing careers, entering their final year of competition, or extending their careers as masters’ throwers, we are confident that we can help them achieve a higher level of success.

Our Mission:

The Iron Wood Thrower Development Camp exists to provide each participant with the opportunity to optimize their athletic potential and improve their physical and mental preparedness for scholastic competition and beyond.
The Principles That Guide Us:

Our staff has been working together for many years to develop and maintain a well coordinated learning environment.

Our curriculum is designed to accommodate all levels of experience.
Our teaching progression features a whole-part-method of instruction and is reinforced by staff directed video feedback sessions. Campers also review printed photo sequences with various coaches.
With isolated throwing areas for each event and over 60 separate throwing pads in use at each session for the discus and shot put sites, a low camper to coach ratio is ensured to provide an optimal learning experience for all.
Due to this supportive atmosphere, our campers are able to achieve high levels of success.

"Iron Wood made throwing fun for me. At my first camp, I didn't know much about any of the throws and I left with an appreciation for all of the throws. My high school coach, Keith Eager and I learned something new every year we attended the camp. One of my best memories of Iron Wood is that of the Goal Stick. I kept it all through college. A lot of the things I learned at the camp I am still using today."
