NCAS Sport Psychology Workshop – 13th May 2017

NCAS Sport Psychology Workshop – 13th May 2017

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.

NCAS Coaching Session 22nd January with Danielle Brown

On the 22nd of January NCAS held the second of the Junior and Senior coaching sessions at the Montsaye Community sports hall in Rothwell. The event was well attended by county archers from almost every club.

We were delighted to have with us Danielle Brown MBE, a double para Olympic Gold medalist, World champion and multiple World record holder. Danielle spoke at both sessions about her experiences from starting Archery as a 15 year old and her journey to winning Gold medals in both Beijing and London and how she dealt with the different pressures and stresses of competition. Her “Performing under Pressure” talk provided coping strategies that could be employed by our Counties archers.

The talk was well received and the County hope to arrange for Danielle to speak at future County events.
