In view of the government briefings yesterday and the number of people getting in touch with me to say they would not be going to attend, this Sundays (22nd March) NCAS coaching session at Montsaye sports academy in Rothwell is cancelled.
Sorry for the short notice but we have tried to delay as long as possible because people wanted to attend. I expect the outdoor session (at this stage) in May to go ahead.
Regards and thanks for understanding.
Once again NCAS will be holding five coaching sessions over the indoor season. These are aimed at intermediate archers and those relatively new to the sport with the intention of generally improving technique, equipment tuning skills and preparing the archer for entering competitions.

The venue is again Montsaye Academy, Greening Road, Rothwell, Northants NN14 6BB.
The junior sessions will be from 9.30.am to about 12.30.pm and the adults are in the afternoon, beginning about 1.30.pm.
The cost is again £25 per head, which covers all five sessions. In the spring of next year there will be an outdoor session to cover shooting at competition distances.
The sessions will include input from a sports psychologist and guest, high level and National coaches. If you require further information or wish to book a place on the sessions please contact me on.
If you would be interested in reserving a place please contact me with the following details.

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.
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.
John Marsall (NCAS County Coaching Officer) has organised a Sport Psychology Workshop on Saturday 13th May 2017.
This is a four hour event, beginning at 10.00.am, and will be held at Montsaye Sports Academy, Greening Road, Rothwell. The presentation will be made by Danielle Brown M.B.E., who is a qualified sports psychologist and two times, Paralympic archery gold medallist.
This presentation is open to all the counties coaches and all participants will receive a workbook that they will go through during the session and can use as an ongoing resource. There is no cost to the attendees.
While this workshop is aimed at, and primarily intended, for coaches there are some spaces available for archers who are interested in this aspect of the sport.
This event is limited to twenty places which will be allocated on a ‘first come – first serve’ basis, so please advise John Marshall as soon as possible if you would like a place.
