How to try throwing sports in middle age

I am a deeply middle aged woman, have never been an athlete, and am suddenly consumed with desire to learn to throw a javelin. How can I make this happen?

I know I'm not going to the Olympics in this lifetime, but I would really like to try some of the throwing sports -- shotput, discus, javelin. They weren't offered at my high school, and my college was so sportsy that the people doing these events were already at international-elite level. I just want to have a few goes before I tip over into senior citizenry.
I am in central New Jersey, if anyone has specific recommendations. Thank you!
