Power Throw: Boys and Girls

Athletes will be given a 10m running area to run and throw the ball as far as they can. If an athlete runs past the 10m line the throw will be considered no good. In this event each athlete will get three attempts. Girls and boys will use a weight of 4.4 lbs. The ball should be around 8 inches wide and no more than 12 inches wide. If there is a tie between two or more athletes the rank will be decided on who threw the same distance first, second and third. If it is a tie between what attempt the distance is thrown and the actual distance itself then a final throw will be given to those athletes and this will continue until there’s a winner. This event can run as heats by distance or by a final with a maximum of 8 athletes.
In this event athlete’s will throw a disc (20-24 inches wide) to a target area with three pins lined up 1m apart from each other. Athletes are to knock over as many pins as possible at certain distances. Athletes will get four attempts/throws to knock over the pins at the target. The point value is the number of pins knocked over x distance away by meters. The distance range is from 5 to 20m and athletes can start at any distance they choose and move to any distance they choose within the range perimeters. If an athlete misses the target more than three times they are out of the competition. The remaining athletes after four attempts can keep can going until they have a miss. The athletes must be at least 10m away from the target. A miss is when an athlete hits no pins. In the event of a tie the remaining athletes will be placed at a 15m distance away from the target and will continue until there is a winner. The target platform must be between 2 to 4 feet in height. This event uses a Beamo disc/frisbee and other brands may be used as long as it meets the width requirement of 20 to 24 inches.
