A reminder that following on from the five indoor NCAS coaching sessions there will be one outdoor event on Sunday 26th May.
The venue is WOAC field at Old Grammarians sports complex, Sywell Road, Wellingborough – NN8 6BS. The format will be much the same as the indoor sessions but with emphasis on tuning and technique to reach the outdoor distances.
The morning session, from 10.00.am to 12.30.pm will be for junior archers and any parents who wish to join them. The afternoon session is from 1.00.pm until about 4.00.pm. and is for adult archers. The cost is £5.00.
If you wish a place on this session please contact John Marshall.
NCAS are planning to arrange a Level 1 coaches course in the spring of next year, however we need to gauge interest to establish the numbers necessary to run the course. The actual course will run over four days with the last being an assessment. The dates will be at least a month apart and you will need the support of your club during the process.
If you are interested in becoming a Level 1 Coach and would like to help other people new to the sport, or just require further details please contact myself or Angie Bray for more information.
As in previous years we will be holding senior and junior coaching sessions on the following dates at Montsaye Academy Rothwell.
Sunday 21 October 2018
Sunday 11 November 2018
Sunday 13 January 2019
Sunday 24 February 2019
Sunday 24 March 2019
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 John Marshall with the following details:
Years of Experience:
Preferred Bow Style:
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 and 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.
State Senior or Junior:
How long shooting:
The county will be running a First Aid CPD event at Sir Christopher Hatton School in Wellingborough from 9.00.am until about 5.00.pm on Saturday 19th May 2018.
This is a First Aid for Archery course with emphasis on problems you might encounter on the range/field. The full event is all day, but for those who might not be able to manage this there is a limited option to join in after lunch for some of the pertinent bits.
There is no cost to attendees and possibly room for experienced archers who are not actually coaches but who would benefit from some First Aid instruction. Please therefore mention the session to others in your club.
