We have been working with Team Lanarkshire to establish a new Archery Club. Team Lanarkshire decided to set up an Archery Club to provide year round training and activity for transplant patients in the local area. They have teamed up with Monklands Archery Club to progress through a Beginners Course prior to running their club sessions. Great partnership working by Team Lanarkshire and Monklands. We look forward to seeing the new club grow.
Coaches Training Session
The Director of Coaching ran a training session in Perth for Coaches who had volunteered to run training sessions as part of the rollout of Soft Archery in Schools. The Coaches are Caroline Waring (Perth), Andrew Kelly (Moray), Caroline Buchanan (Bannockburn), David Hutton (Glasgow), Nick Murrell and Richard Vallis (Penicuik) and Ranald Barrie (Ancrum). These Coaches will be great ambassadors for archery in primary schools.
These training sessions will be held primarily for Active Schools Co-ordinators, Teachers and Young Leaders throughout Scotland. The training will support the relationships being developed by our Club Development Officer Laura Baxter to introduce primary school children to archery and within local communities.
