Hi, I just wanted to say hello and I hope you are all staying safe.
It’s a strange time for us all being at home from school and trying to keep up with school work, fitness and shooting.
In our house we are very lucky to have a boss at home to help us keep up technique practise and arrow count.
We also have access to our coaches via online coaching.
If you can’t shoot at home but want to try and keep in shape ready for when this is all over – clingy bands, bow drills and general strength and conditioning will all help.
There are lots of resources available on the internet or you could contact your club coaches with the help of your responsible adults.
For those of you who should be sitting exams and now won’t be able to put your hard work to use, or year 6 students who may miss out on those leavers experiences that mark you goodbyes to friends and teachers as you move on.
You are still awesome and the strange situation we find ourselves in doesn’t change any of that.
If you want to get in touch with me for anything please ask your adults to message via my mum at:firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do remember your internet safety as many of us are using technology more at the moment than we might do normally.
Our very own Helen Sharpe of Wellingborough Open Archery Club, shares her first-year journey as an Archery GB Club Ambassador, on the Archery GB website.
“Archery is my sport, the sport of my family, the sport that I love. It, in my opinion, allows anyone of any age, ability or group to be together in the same environment and get together either socially or to have grassroots archers stand in a club environment against the country’s top archers. I cannot think of any other sport that creates this coming together of everyone within it.”
Due to Archery GB advising that all archery in the UK is postponed for the foreseeable future. Please expect a number of organised club events and open shoots due to take place within the next few months to be cancelled.
Today, Kettering Archers have confirmed that both the Angela Bray Memorial Clout on 19th April, and the NCAS 1st Caswell on the 3rd May which they are hosting, are both cancelled. The club hope to run the Angela Bray Memorial Clout later in the year if possible.
