Derek Bett of Kettering Archers has yet again improved on his own gents barebow national record for the York round with 951.
Derek acheived the record at Jolly Archers Autumn Shoot on 18th September 2016. His previous record score of 943 was set only in June of this year at the 165th RLSAS Leamington & Midland Archery Meeting. Derek also holds the national record for the Double York with 1890 also set in June.
Following the successful junior coaching sessions provided by NCAS over the past few years we have been asked if the County can provide similar sessions for senior archers.
In principal, we would be delighted to do so but we need to gauge the level of interest from coaches and both senior and junior archers before we can proceed.
Within this format we are also hoping to develop our County’s coaches. There will be opportunity for less experienced coaches ( those entering level 1 coaching and recently qualified level 1 coaches) to work alongside more experienced coaches from both inside and outside our county.
If you would be interested in assisting in a coaching capacity please contact the below with the following details:
Years of Experience:
Preferred Bow Style:
We would be hoping to hold 5 coaching sessions between November 2016 and April 2017. We would need your commitment to each of the sessions (am Juniors) / (pm Seniors).
For Archers, both the Senior and Junior Coaching sessions will be aimed at the intermediate archer looking to improve technique and performance. The sessions will include strength & conditioning, bow set up / bow tuning, technique and the mental approach.
The sessions will be open to all bow styles.
There will be a cost to archers for these sessions and NCAS will be providing a subsidy but until numbers are known the actual cost cannot be determined.
If you would be interested in reserving a place please contact the below with the following details.

Both Susan and James made it through to the bronze medal matches on the day. Susan ended up finishing in 4th placeand James in 3rd. Congratulations to them both!
