Cory Holly Classic

5th Annual Cory Holly Classic Saturday August 28th 2021 Vernon BC

Hammer, Shot, Discus, Javelin, Weight Throw and Throws Pentathlon


Masters Throws Clinic April 2021 Vernon BC (exact date to be announced)

Like all athletes everywhere, Masters athletes (regardless of current performance level) need coaching, but Masters need coaches and teachers that understand the biology and health aspects of aging athletes. The fact is that very little coaching is available for Masters Throwers throughout BC and even nationwide. Hence, the wise thing for all of us as mature aging athletes dedicated to our sport, is to attend an education clinic AT THE BEGINNNING OF THE SEASON, then take this experience, insight and knowledge with us and put it into action as we train and compete in the upcoming season.
