OBJECTIVE SU Throws Camp was started in 2003 and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the finest throws camps east of the Mississippi River. Student-athletes enjoy no less than 10 skill sessions which are situated over a four-day period. This camp is a hands-on throwing camp. Since its inception, nearly 1,000 student-athletes have attended our camp!! This camp is designed to be a throws-specific camp, which meets or exceeds the quality of all throws camps in the region. The quality of the camp stems from the background, experience, knowledge, expertise, and care from our clinicians. This camp has developed a tremendous amount of highly successful high school and college throwers. All aspects of the throwing events will be covered by using proper throwing techniques. Plyometrics, weight training, mental training, proper diet, and various other aspects of training will be covered. These all will be throws-specific. The SU Throws Camp provides throwers with high level instruction, but on a more personal scale and a more reasonable cost. We have an excellent staff to student-athlete ratio which allows for an abundance of one-on-one interaction with the clinicians and staff. As the camp numbers grow, staff is added. To keep the camp interaction at its maximum level, the camp cutoff number is 80 athletes.

 FACILITIES The SU Throws Camp is conducted on the beautiful campus of Shippensburg University. The campus, which is the site of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association state high school track and field championships, consists of a red all-weather eightlane track, three horizontal jump runways, an all-weather javelin runway, three shot put circles, a discus cage and a hammer/ discus cage. Additional circles are added for camp as well. There is an indoor track in the field house that can be used in inclement weather and a weight training facility.
