View Full Version : Anyone know about shotput with children?

Hi everybody,

I got this question and didn't know where else to turn to.

A parent is asking me what whether it's okay for children to throw shotput, and if so what is the right shotput weight for them.

If anyone knows anything about this, or knows someone I can point them to, please let me know or post a reply on the link below:

Thank you,
