On the 13 March 2019 at the East Hampshire Sports Awards, Maia Daborn won 'Coach of the Year'. The award ceremony was hosted by Roger Black MBE, European, Commonwealth and World Championship Gold Medal Winner in athletics and the awards were presented by former Captain of the England Women's Cricket Team, Charlotte Edwards CBE.
It was a very proud moment for her Dad, Mike, watching and listening to Maia speak passionately about her love of archery in front of a very large audience.
Well done Maia.
