Accept a challenge! Just ask.
How many events do you intend to participate in? Try another event.
At the first 2 competition meets of the season, the majority of athletes did 1, 2, or 3 events. Often 3 throws or 3 sprints.
A handful of athletes are doing 5 or more events.
Be like the thrower that added in a sprint event. Have a throw or a jump or line up on the track. If you have never done an event before, your successful performance will be at least a Season Best, if not a Lifetime Best.
Bring along a friend, partner or family member to have a go. If you are competing in 1 or 2 events, volunteer to help out at a field event or operate the wind gauge.
Just ask and someone will show you how. We all had to learn in the beginning.
