Memberships

Joining the Throwers Group costs only $5 per year; this gives you plenty of opportunities for throwing at our scheduled competitions and training days.  You will also enjoy the use of quality implements at training & comp days, coaching clinics, result sheets for all events, plus a quarterly newsletter (click to view all the latest Throwers Group ‘Out of Sector’ newsletters).

We throw on selected Sundays throughout the year at Duncan Mackinnon Athletics Track ($3 for members and $5 for non-members, however all participants must be financial VMA members).  Training and competition days start at 12:45pm unless otherwise stated. Earlier arrival to help with set up is always welcome.  At the conclusion of activities we enjoy a chat over a cuppa with cake or biscuits – donation of a plate to share or a gold coin is appreciated.

The Throwers are a friendly group and are willing to assist anyone who would like to have a go at throwing on a one to one basis or in a group.  If you have any queries just give one of the committee members a call.
