A World Class Training Center for the Throwing Events
The Concordia University Throw
University Throw Center is located on 10 acres of land near Marine
Drive and Portland International Airport on NE 33rd Avenue in Portland. The
unique layout will include a basketball court-sized rain shelter
for throwing in the Oregon elements as well as traditional uncovered
circles and runways. All four throwing events will have
the circles, cages, and runways for elite athlete
training and large clinic groups of up to 40 per event. Participants can experience throwing safely
at the same time or competitions ranging fro local all-comers meet
to the international level.
Why a Throw Center?
Because there is no facility designed only for the throws in this country and every other throwing venue is an after thought to the running track or the football stadium
Because throwing is a great vehicle for learning and growth
Because Concordia University has world class human resources to use this world class facility for the greatest benefit of the community
Because this is every throwers’ dream
Because it deserves to be done right.
Because it’s beautiful, because we can.......
“Learning is growth.
Growth is life.
No learning, no life.
What did you learn today?”
