National Talent Development Programme

October 16th 2018

Archery GB is pleased to announce the restructuring of the National Talent Development Programme for the 2018/19 season

Due to feedback from athletes, parents and coaches, Archery GB will be establishing a southern training camp, which will be held at our ontarget Performance club, Aim4Sport. This will be open for all southern county cadets and juniors to attend, including their personal coaches. For midland and northern county athletes, Lilleshall National Sports Centre will remain as their main training camp.

The programme’s aim is to give athletes opportunities to access Archery GB Talent Pathway coaching and to give personal coaches opportunities to work with our Archery GB Talent Pathway coaches. Athletes will be benchmarked on our “What it takes to Win” framework throughout the programme, with the best athletes being invited to a profiling day towards the end of the competition calendar, held at Lilleshall.

This programme has an extremely successful track record of promoting athletes into the Academy system and winning medals on an International stage.

  • 18 November – Lilleshall National Sports Centre and Aim4Sport
  • 24 February – Lilleshall National Sports Centre and Aim4Sport
  • 26 May – Lilleshall National Sports Centre and Aim4Sport
  • Profiling day (held at Lilleshall, dates to be confirmed)

In conjunction with the ontarget programme and Performance Specialism clubs, we will be looking for clubs in the midlands and northern counties who would like to host the National Talent Development Programme in the 2019/20 season. If you are an ontarget Performance club that is interested then please contact us on If you are a club that would like to register as an ontarget club please contact
