Format of Field Events
Throws: The Weight Throw will take place inside an indoor throwing cage. Shot Put and Weight Throw warm-ups will begin 30 minutes prior to the event or at the time indicated by the event official and will be supervised by the event official. Any throwing prior to the official warm-up period will be cause for event disqualification. Throwing will not be allowed upon completion of the event. We plan to allow each Open and Master thrower 6 attempts. However, if there are more than 8 competitors in any division, then we will allow 3 attempts in the trials and the top 8 throwers in each division will advance to the finals for 3 more attempts. Final placing will be determined by best distance. We reserve the right to combine age groups and genders in the interest of competition when seed distances and entry numbers dictate. All U20 (Youth) throwers will be permitted 4 attempts.
 
Throwing Implements: Implements should meet weight/measure standards for each division. All implements should be safe to use. Throwing an implement that is altered is grounds for disqualification, even if it occurs during the warm-up period. All athletes are responsible for bringing their own legal implements. We will NOT provide implements for use.


The following implements may be used:

U20: Appropriate weights for each age group.
Open: 35 lb. Men and 20 lb. Women

We plan to allow each Open and Master jumper 6 attempts. However, if there are more than 8 competitors in any division, then we will allow 3 attempts in the trials and the top 8 jumpers will advance to the finals for 3 more attempts. Final placing will be determined by best distance. We reserve the right to combine age groups and genders in the interest of competition when seed distances and entry numbers dictate.
