Philip & Mary, two of our club coaches, spent a day out at the Southern Counties Archery Society (SCAS) coaches conference yesterday (3rd March) which was held at the RAF Musuem near Hendon in London.

Coaches from all over the southern counties region came to hear speakers deliver talks on a wide range of topics including sports psychology, the use of video analysis, the latest developments in strength and conditioning training and news from the national coaching committee.

The keynote speaker was Michael Peart a TeamGB member and a strong contender for a place in our Olympic squad. Michael kept everyone entertained with insights into what it's like to be a TeamGB member and the differences in coaching styles between coaches he's worked with in the recent past including some great stories about Lloyd Brown who was brought in following the 2008 Beijing Olympics to prepare TeamGB for this summers games in London.

Philip & Mary will be passing on the latest developments in archery coaching they've learned at the conference through the club coaching clinics so don't forget to sign up!
