The weight is thrown for three attempts with one hand in a throwing box measuring 4'­6" x 9'. The thrower must keep one foot inside this area and not step over the back line or field side of the trig or the throw is a foul.

*Women's Masters over 40 years old and Lightweight throwers use a 21 pound weight.
