Each year it just amazes me how many new smiling faces we get in the Heavy Athletics Competition.

Many of us compete at several events throughout the Southeast and some of us travel great distances to compete in some of the Major Championships in the Country, but one great sign that our sport is continuing to grow is the number of new faces I see each year. Many are first time throwers and its great to watch that competitive spirit catch fire. In many cases, I’ll see that same smiling face the next year and be astonished at the progress the Athlete has made, but it’s the new faces that I tend to look at, and it tells me we’re doing something right.

Come Throw Heavy Stuff with Us!!
