I must point out that these rules appear in no particular order...

The Marks

In Order to reach Open Class status in Alberta and regularly participate in the Open Class (some B participation will occur in the Open class to serve as further experience to the top B throwers from previous competitions), 4 out of 6 of the following marks must be met and maintained as of the over the course of the season:
 

Event Mark
Open Stone 37'
28# Distance 54'
16# Hammer 94'
56# Weight over Bar 12'
56# Distance 27'
22# Hammer 72'

 


These marks must be met as an average over two consecutive games. To an athlete granted his A status, he must show continued adherence to these marks, with some consideration given to personal situations (injury, insufficient time to train due to external influences, poor competition). As well, anyone requesting a status change will also have to have shown some involvement in the association.

 

 

The Classes

As the interest in the Heavy Events has expanded in the last few years to younger throwers, more classes have been added to allow them to participate safely. Below you'll find the standards used in Alberta for weights thrown by athletes in each class:
