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:

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. As a guidance last year the cost was £25 each for all 5 sessions.

If you would be interested in reserving a place please contact me with the following details.

We look forward to hearing from you.
