NCAS Junior Coaching Sessions

We are pleased to advise that Junior Coaching will be available again in January.

Tim Bull is kindly organising these sessions, and will be supported by some excellent coaches and experienced archers.

We are expecting on at least two of the sessions to share our venue with a number of GB Academy Archers and Coaches.

We have booked Montsaye Community College, Rothwell on the following dates and times:
Sunday 18th January 2015, 2pm – 6pm
Sunday 15th February 2015, 2pm – 6pm
Sunday 22nd March 2015, 2pm – 6pm
Sunday 5th April 2015, 2pm – 6pm

Northamptonshire County Archery Society have agreed to subsidise these sessions, and Targetcraft Archers have agreed not to charge for Boss hire, but there will be something to pay by each archer. We will be able to advise costs, once we know the number of people likely to attend.

What are the sessions about:
The sessions will be aimed at those Archers who are interested in developing their skills with a view to representing, in the future, County, Region and perhaps Country. We will be looking to assist with improving technique, form, and fitness. We will also assist where necessary with Bow set up and tuning, and provide advise in relation to goal setting, record keeping and personal improvement. We will submit closer to the event the full details of the programme.

Who are the sessions for:
All Juniors registered with the County. (We will accept FITA Juniors up to their 21st year). Each Junior must have their own equipment, have shown an interest in competition and have an ambition to succeed.

At each session there will be both qualified coaches plus experienced archers. At some sessions we hope that the County’s two representatives of the GB Squad – Brad Denny and John Bull will also be present to assist with coaching and talk about competition on a World stage.

Some of you may already have access to coaching either via your club or a third party. That’s great. County Coaching is not a replacement, but something as well as. Please feel free to bring coaching notes with you in order that we can work together.
