23rd AMA Winter Throwing Championships

Saturday September 29th - Monday October 1st, 2018

Kerryn McCann Athletics Centre, Wollongong, NSW

Meet Costs: $25 admin fee and $4 per single event or $8 per pentathlon.

Uniforms: Wearing of State uniform is encouraged but not compulsory.

Weight for Distance is now an official event for the AMA Winter Throws Championships. It is based on the Highland Games event and involves throwing a weight implement (one size down from the usual one thrown in the Weight event) one-handed from a discus circle - usually with an action similar to the discus throw. Making the Weight For Distance event an official event of the AMA Winter means ONLY that winners and placegetters will receive ribbons in recognition of their efforts and their results recorded. This is NOT an official event of the AMA or State Associations and therefore official records CANNOT be claimed.

2018 Championships Dinner: A variation to previous years sees the dinner being held on the evening of Saturday Sept 29th rather than the Sunday. This will give more athletes and their 'significant others' a chance to gather and relax in an informal setting. The venue and time will be confirmed closer to the date of the event.
