Club Guide - Seated Throws

Seated, or secured, throwing takes place in a throws circle. Events include shot, javelin, discus, and club and are for athletes that are unable to stand or have balance and stability problems that make throwing from an ambulant position difficult.

Athletes in the seated throwing events throw from either their day chairs, or from custom made throwing frames, which are secured to the ground by straps.  This club guide provides information on the following;
