NCAS Coaching Sessions

NCAS Coaching Sessions

Now that things are beginning to get back to some degree of normality, as in previous years NCAS will be arranging coaching sessions at Montsaye Community Sports Centre in Greening Road, Rothwell.

The dates are:
24th October 2021
28th November 2021
23rd January 2022
27th February 2022
27th March 2022

All these dates are a Sunday.

The cost will again be £25 to cover all five sessions.

Over this period we expect to cover individual technique coaching, bow and equipment tuning including fletching and wooden arrows, sports psychology, strength and conditions and nutrition. The county’s senior coaches will be in attendance.

This coaching is aimed at archers relatively new to the sport.

As in previous events the junior session will be from 9.30.am. until 12.30.pm. and the seniors from 1.30.pm until about 4.00.pm.

I am afraid that due to Covid restrictions numbers this year will be restricted and places offered on a first come basis. To keep the room numbers down we are asking that, if possible, a junior is brought to the venue by a single parent and even left, if they are happy with that.

Please contact me if you require a place.

John Marshall
County Coaching Organiser

Tri-Counties Match – 3rd October

Hi all archers,

Just a note to say we have 1 more outdoor inter-county match which has just been finalised, the Tri-county match between Beds, Bucks, and Northants.

The round and team size are as follows.

The round will be a Western for all seniors with age-appropriate junior Westerns, so 8 dozen arrows on a 122 com face at:

Western Seniors 60 & 50 yards
Short Western Juniors U16 50 & 40 yards
Junior Western Juniors U14 40 & 30 yards
Short Junior Western Juniors U12 30 & 20 yards

Ages above are junior gents, for junior girls allow another 2 years for each category.

We are proposing teams as follows:

5 Recurve
3 Compound
3 Barebow
3 Longbow
3 Juniors (any bow type)

I have already approached your club selectors for names and will be looking to use any scores that have already been put in at the recent matches & scores from the county champs.
