I’m pleased to confirm that HAA Coaching will be offering a series of Open Coaching Clinics through the summer. These will be available to ALL Hamshire archers from Novices to County Team Members both Senior and Junior and sessions will be staffed by coaches of all Levels. So whatever you would like to get out of a visit to one of these we aim to have the expertise available to help you.
Each session will run from 5pm (probably more useful for Juniors) and continue until around 8pm, depending on light conditions. There will be a charge of £5, part of which will reimburse the clubs who have kindly offered their facilities for the use of their range and targets and part will pay travel expenses to the coaches attending.
Please help our planning by emailing your intention to attend a session to The Coaching Organiser, if possible a week before each event.
Our appeal for clubs to provide facilities for these Clinics had an excellent response. So good in fact that we have not been able to take up all of the offers so I hope other venues will be visited next year. The intention is to have a wide geographical spread to make attending easier but you will be welcome to visit as many as you wish. Confirmed forthcoming dates are:
Most of the club websites give further information, if needed, on finding the ranges but let me know if you still have difficulty.
