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.

--David Dumble, throws coach at Arizona State University
"The Iron Wood Throws Camp is a unique experience when it comes to throwing camps. It is a great experience for all levels and ages of throwers. The campers are subjected to immense amounts of knowledge and experience in all areas of the throws. Campers are immersed not only into the technical and training side of throwing, but they also learn the culture and attitude of successful throwers. It is a rare opportunity to ask questions of and to learn from past Olympians and top level coaches, like those at Iron Wood. In my twenty years of being a thrower and coach, I even learned some new drills and ideas when I attended the camp. I look forward to being there again."
