Coaching Tip of the Month

"When the quality of your execution means more to you than the result of your execution your results will be maximised"

Lanny Basham (Olympic medallist)

Course Cancelled

A recent Level 2 Coach Training course was cancelled due to lack of numbers. To gauge interest from Level 1 coaches wishing to progress to Level 2, please let us know if you interested in improving your coaching skills and qualification. We can then arrange dates for a Level 2 course. Anyone interested in attending a Level 2 course should make contact by emailing: coaching@scottisharchery.org.uk

We urgently need more volunteers to come forward and train as judges. Email Bob (bob.provan@btinternet.com) if this could be you.

Piperdam Soft Archery Club and Dunning Primary during Health Week
Scottish Archery was invited to a reception at the Scottish Parliament to showcase soft archery to MSP's and other sports. The evening was a great success with many commenting on how impactful a tool soft archery is for engaging with a variety of community groups

LEAP Scotland

LEAP Sports Scotland have been in touch with us to deliver Archery at the Pride Glasgow event on 14th & 15th July at Kelvingrove Park.

Pride offers a great opportunity to engage with the LGBTI community and highlight Archery to an underrepresented group. LEAP's Pride Active space consists of a marquee with some stall space and an outdoor area in which to deliver tasters, games or demonstrations. LEAP Scotland have expressed interest in us delivering Soft Archery and we are keen to get our membership involved in showing what our sport is all about.

We have opted to have presence at the event on Saturday 14th July from 12-6pm.

I am keen for clubs and members to get involved if possible to deliver as there will be opportunities to promote your club to the LGBTI community.

Anyone who is interested in helping out please get in touch with Laura on Laura@scottisharchery.org.uk

Club Development Workshop Series

For the 2nd Year Scottish Archery will be partnering with BadmintonScotland to deliver a Club Development Workshop Series to address some of the common challenges that clubs across the country are faced with. The series of workshops will be rolled out from around September.

We would like to ensure that the workshop topics on offer are in alignment with our member club needs and demands. It would be great if our member clubs could give 5 minutes of their time to complete this simple survey. The Survey will close on Wednesday 11th July.
