The Iron Wood Throwers Center is a 10-acre, world-class, indoor and outdoor training facility dedicated to training athletes in the shot put, discus, hammer and javelin.
It is staffed by an elite coaching group made up of former Olympic and collegiate coaches, as well as long-time high school coaches, and provides a place for athletes to train year-round while offering them a healthy, fun, and supportive environment.
Along with Olympic caliber training, the throws center instills pride, purpose, and values in all of the athletes that train here. The throws center has been home to countless high school, collegiate, and post-collegiate champions, as well as Olympic athletes.
Additionally, the throws center, through the Ben Plucknett Foundation, provides both academic and competition/training scholarships to young athletes based on financial need.
OUR FOUNDER This facility was born from one man's passion and dedication to the throws, and to the athletes who pursue them. Bart Templeman wanted to give kids a place to train during the off-season; especially with our infamous winter weather.
Fast forward a few years (and quite a few kids), and now we are the Iron Wood Throwers Center. A world class training center that is dedicated to developing Track & Field Throwers and Coaches in North Idaho and surrounding areas. We regularly train athletes from five states and Canada, and our reach is growing every year. We have expanded into one of the best facilities in the Country, with facilities and space to train year round, and expert coaching for all levels. We also have a USATF registered club that provides high school athletes the opportunity to compete in the indoor season as well as summer series meets locally and nationally.
We look forward to hearing from you, and THROW FAR!
"Iron Wood coaches push you to became a better athlete than what you were before you entered."
"...the coaching I received at Ironwood developed not only my athletic ability, but my work ethic. I have been able to succeed in many aspects of life in part because of the lessons learned at IWTC."
