EMAS Senior Inter-counties (Thoresby) Team Announced

Up and coming EMAS Senior Inter-counties Tournament (Thoresby) 2021.

As we know it’s been a strange year and this year the selection for the shoot has had to take a different approach after contacting the ‘selectors’ from each club it was decided that I would need to canvas the archers that had taken part in various team events.

EMAS had originally mentioned that the Thoresby this year would be a 720 round but at the eleventh hour the event was changed back to its historical York/Hereford format.

From the approach taken we have the following archers who have agreed to represent the county in this event.

Recurve:
Steve Allen – Targetcraft Archers
Ioannis Chrisinas – Northampton AC
Rebecca Stevens – Towcester Archers

Longbow:
Mark Bennet – Wellingborough OAC

Barebow:
Mick Lovell – Northampton AC
Mark Allison – Kettering Archers
Sandra Allison – Kettering Archers

We wish you all the best in the event!

Session Coach Course

Northants county needs more archery coaches.

During the forthcoming indoor shooting season NCAS will arrange a Session Coaches Course for archers within the county. Before we can decide the dates, venue and cost it is necessary to establish the potential uptake of places on the course.

The new course format involves four on-line modules, which will be undertaken at your own time and pace, then two practical sessions and a final assessment. An archer undertaking the course will need a mentor and the ability to assist in beginners courses at their own club. If the latter is not possible, alternatives can be arranged.

If you are interested in becoming a coach please discuss the idea with your club and advise the County Coaching Organiser of your details.
