I coach the throwers for the Vienna Youth track & field team. This is a reference page for youth throwers in general, and specifically for VYI youth throwers.

For example, the javelin might start at the association level, and the hammer might start at the regional level. In this case, the athlete will get an "advance" into the next round of meets.
