Thank you...

for sharing with me at the Throw Center for the last five years and here in Portland since 1998.  
I have always felt that if you are truly passionate about something you are compelled to share your passion with others.

this month my sharing in Portland will come to an end as I move to the U.S. Olympic Performance Center in Chula Vista California to be the Throws Coach for the USATF.  My focus will be helping throwers just out of college trying to make the jump to the top 12 internationally & Podium level results.  The USATF also provides a strong platform from which I can share with throwers and coaches of all ages and levels of development.

Mac Wilkin's Vision

Our Purpose:
Share positive life lessons with young people through physical activity, while improving the success of US throwers in the Olympics and World Championships by guiding athletes in the pursuit of world class excellence.

Our Mission:
To share our passion for throwing and learning we will: Create a world-class training facility and environment for local youth, Concordia University athletes, national class post-graduates and international class throwers.

  • Provide on going activity programs based on throwing activities to local disadvantaged youth.
  • Raise the success level of US throwers in the international arena. We will develop throwers at all levels of development to their fullest potential.
  • Educate enough coaches and athletes and help develop enough hammer cages and fields to have an Oregon State High School Championship in the hammer throw.

Our Beliefs and Values:

  • There is intrinsic joy in physical activity.
  • Participation in sports provides a rich environment for learning positive life lessons.
  • The pursuit of excellence in sports provides tremendous personal growth opportunities.
  • If you pursue excellence you must become a learner. Becoming a life long learner is a valuable trait.
  • Life long learners are compelled to share and will become servant leaders.
  • We have been blessed with unique talents and experiences and feel compelled to help young people along this path.
