National Disability Championships: We need your help!
The 2018 National Disability Championships are being held on 23-24 June. They are going to be bigger than last year, more inclusive with a brand new category for novice archers….and we need your help.
We need volunteers to agent for the archers, helping with scoring in the qualification round and finals of the disability categories on 23 June. If you can spare the time to be a crucial part of a fantastic event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year the event, supported by the Worshipful Company of Fletchers, proved a huge success. It generated lots of positive feedback at recent competition workshops where it was suggested that the championships could be made even better by adding a novice category. That is now in place and open to men and women of all bow types who have been in the sport for less than two years and have some form of physical impairment.
The format of the event, which will be held at Lilleshall, will be a 720 round followed by head to heads. The novice category will be shot at 30 metres.
The other categories are:
- World Archery Classified athletes
- Archers with a physical impairment but who do not have a valid World Archery classification
- Visually impaired athletes.
