Implements & Spikes

Field Event Implements and Implementation Inspection

Two (2) competition-approved implements of every size and weight will be provided.  However, it is recommended that you bring your own implement and have it certified at the Implement Inspection area.  The Implement Inspection area will be located at the east side of the storage building.

Athletes wishing to use their own implements must submit those implements for inspection at least two hours before the scheduled start of their throwing event.  Approved implements will be impounded until the start of the competition.
 
Implement Inspection will be open as follows (subject to change based on final schedule):
 
●        Wednesday, July 10                4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
●        Thursday, July 11                    7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
●        Friday, July 12                         7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
●        Saturday, July 13                     7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
●        Sunday, July 14                       7:00 a.m. – noon
 
All implements should be checked in at least two hours prior to the start of your event.
 
Implements for all early morning throws (8:00 – 10:00 a.m.) should be checked in the evening before the event.
