Compound and recurve juniors, do you want to be the best?

The National Talent Development Programme is being opened to compound archers. For the first time in the history of the Programme, compound archers will be able to train and develop with leading compound specialists. The coaching given will be aligned to the World Class level and so will support juniors on their journey within compound archery. All participants must be under the age of 20 on 1 January  2017 and currently not engaged in any National Compound squads.

Archery GB would also like to offer all aspiring recurve archers under the age of 20 on 1 January 2017, the opportunity to join the Programme. Archers who are currently within the 2016-2017 group or who have engaged previously WILL need to sign up again.

The programme consists of:

  • Technical progression reports from our National leading Talent Coaches
  • Current Strength and Conditioning practices linked to World Class success.
  • Specially designed nutritional and psychological workshops/seminars for both athletes and parents
  • Competition training including team and mix team opportunities
  • Practical equipment workshops

Dates and costs for National Talent Development Programme 2017/2018, which will be held at Lilleshall are:

  • Profiling day – TBD August 2017 – £16 (includes programme entry fee)
  • Session 1 – 18 or 19 November 2017 – £11
