Events

Bag Toss for Max Height

Video demonstration

How it works:
All athletes start at the height of 11 feet. 

For the first height only, both a heavy bag and a light bag will be available. Athletes have 45 seconds to get either bag over the bar. If they fail to get either bag over the bar, they will get a zero on the event.

For each successive height, athletes will have 30 seconds to get the bag over the bar. They can only use the heavy bag if they got the heavy bag over the first height. If they only got the light bag over the first height, they can only use the light bag on successive heights. 

  • Any height completed on the heavy bag beats anyone that only got the light bag.
  • Height will increase at 1 foot increments.
  • Athletes can’t skip heights.
  • If you fail a height, you can’t attempt taller heights.
  • If the bag gets stuck on top of the apparatus, that counts as a successful throw.

If more than one athlete completes the tallest height (17’) with the heavier bag, we will add 2.5lbs to the bag every round at the tallest height until only one athlete is left. If more than one athlete completes the tallest height with the lighter bag, it will be a tie.

  • Equipment Allowed: Chalk, sleeves, belts, gloves, all the normal stuff.
  • Equipment Not Allowed: Stilts and anything sticky.

What we’re using:

  • Some combination of Rogue and Cerberus throwing bags filled with crumb rubber and/or sand, depending on availability.
  • Adjustable throwing apparatus with a 4’x8′ board to throw over.
