Personal Performance Course

Started in and running every year since 1950 by Alan Pritchard, coach and GB archer; the aim was to provide coaching to those who aspired to improve and compete at higher levels. In fact, many past candidates have gone on to shoot for County and Country.

Residential courses are held every year depending upon demand, with a maximum of twenty candidates per course. Recurve, Compound and Longbow are all covered in depth; with emphasis on shooting form, using video analysis for feedback to the archer.

Equipment set-up, elite training programmes, tuning, mental training, exercise and nutrition are just some of the subjects covered in depth and courses are continually up-dated to stay in line with the latest ideas from Korea, USA and the rest of the world!

Each archer will gain insight into the training a method undertaken by elite archers, but at all time training is tailored to the individual and care is taken to address their particular needs.

The three day long courses are open to any Archery GB member who has been shooting regularly for a minimum of six months.

Some return many times to get further coaching and enjoy the camaraderie of the group, often making new friendships along the way.

No-one is abandoned at the end of a course, Dave Redding and his team of Sue and Keith Hawkesford, Tony Luff and Peter Minshaw, are happy to provide follow on coaching to all candidates!

Residential course held at Lilleshall National Sports Centre, Newport, Shropshire – accommodation, meals, course and facilities all included in the price of £395.
