Students coming to Targeting Archery either as complete beginners on a Beginners' Course, or current archers wanting to improve their archery skills can be assured of receiving quality archery coaching from an experienced Archery GB level-2 coach. Karen's experience (see the tab below) includes making regular trips to Lilleshall, the home of Archery GB, to keep up-to-date with the latest techniques which she brings back to use at all the different lessons and sessions run by Targeting Archery. So we utilise the most up-to-date archery techniques as set out by the U.K. Archery Head Coach and the Archery GB coaching team.

General Coaching

Archery students just wishing to generally improve their archery can receive sessions with an aim to look at your current techniques, using various methods such as watching, recording and playback to identify where improvements can be achieved, looking at exercise specifically for archery and more. A program of improvements can be prepared and a time span agreed to put our agreed plan into practice. Hourly sessions each week for the agreed number of weeks will then commence, or a one-off session can be arranged to check progress following your own practising. You should see an improvement in your techniques by the end of the plan which should hopefully be reflected in your score cards.

If you are interested in a general improvement plan please contact me to arrange a meeting and initial assessment session. Then regular sessions will be arranged as required to complete the plan.

What to Expect

Coaching sessions are usually 1½ hours long. Maximum of 4 people per session. (Note: See the come-and-shoot sessions page for further information on Junior Club lessons).

The first session will include a discussion of what you would like to achieve followed by an assessment of your current level. A plan of action will be agreed with you to take you up to where you want to reach, and the rest of the session will be shooting and coaching. Following sessions will follow the plan and include warming up exercises, shooting and coaching and warm down exeresis.

Sessions will be arranged to take place at a time and on day of week to suit both parties. I do have other commitments so not every day/time combination can be catered for but I will do my best to agree something suitable for both of us.
