This is a light weight modular Discus Throw Circle. Using keyed foam mats we cut out the proper size 2.5 meter throwing circle. There are 16 segments to the circle.
We used a large CNC router to cut a smooth accurate circle to the proper size. The pads lock together to form the throwing circle.We use dumb bell weights to hold the circle down or you can use any heavy object on two of the four corners or all four corners. The mats are approximately 1/2 inch thick. Circle is accurate to within. 5 diameter due to expansion and contraction of foam. 0, 90, 180 270, are marked on four segments to give visual to the proper foot placement for turns. Depending on availability they will be on contrasting segment colors or labeled in contrasting ink. (The picture is actually RED but it is now silver/gray or blue or black with white lettering). My daughter throws shot, discus, hammer and weight and I made the circle so that we could practice indoors in a gym or warehouse with a concrete floor.
We have used it outdoors on concrete and also asphalt for foot drills and some throwing when we did not want to travel to the cage. It is light, easy to setup and take down and takes up minimal room. Or at a school you can have 2 or 3 throwing stations running at once and get more foot work and technique practice in for the throwers. This is the base model.
We will have three other options that will be posted soon. Also take a look at our practice Weight Throw bag and handle, Shot Circle and our Discus Circle inserts to convert a Discus Circle for Hammer or Weight Throw. Thank you so much for offering me this ring at this price! Your prototype is going to be used by five of the best high school girls? Shot putters in the state of Colorado and it?
S going to help them get even better! Any chance you could contact me when you get the toeboard attachment completed? My high school team will love it also once the seasons starts on Monday! I would love to hear how your daughter ends up doing with her final high school years/college etc.
So I hope we stay in touch! My son is a shot put thrower. The circle is a Christmas gift. He is currently attending Louisburg College and was given scholarship to throw for their new track program. UVA is a great school hope you like it!
