Highland Games Throwing Club
We have established a Highland games throwing club here in Morrisville, North Carolina. The focus of this club is to learn and practice the various throwing events of the highland games (Heavy athletics).
We have people throwing with us that are practicing for games and just throwing for fun. North Carolina and the surrounding states have a good number of games throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall so there are
plenty of opportunities to compete.
The fee for the club is $100 a month to help us raise money for equipment and provide personalized coaching on the throws. Our scheduled throwing times are tentatively Tuesday nights at 6 and also most Saturday mornings at 10am. Location: Ruritan Park (1928 Morrisville Carpenter Road Cary, NC)
This club is for men and women and we have the appropriate implements for all classes including masters. For more information on the highland games, see the NASGA website: http://www.nasgaweb.com/getstart.asp
