Performance Coaching for Adults

The Essex Guild of Archery Coaches are keen to provide Performance Coaching to adults seeking to improve their archery skills.

We hope to be able to provide archers with continued help and support to meet their individual goals and, in the process, contribute to stronger County Teams.

We will be creating two coaching hubs: one on the Essex/Suffolk border  and the other in the South Essex area. To be able to run them efficiently and professionally, we would like to gauge interest.

If you would like to  attend the Performance Coaching sessions, please register your interest by filling out the form via the essexarcherycoaches.co.uk site or click the banner below




SCAS (East) Aligned Pathway presents: the ‘Return of JEDI’!

The Junior Essex Development Initiative (a highly successful project previously organised 7 years ago) is to be delivered as part of the SCAS East Aligned Pathway with the aim of developing potential County-standard Junior archers from the Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex areas  - and also less experienced coaches who wish to improve their practical coaching skills.

Please visit the project page at http://essexarcherycoaches.co.uk/jedi for more information and application forms.

 

 Essex v Cambridgeshire Longbow Double Portsmouth 16th February 2014

On Sunday , 16th February 2014, ten longbow archers from each county assembled at  Shenfield School, Brentwood for the annual double Portsmouth match. In a contrast to previous years the weather was nearly perfect so the Cambridgeshire  team made good progress to Brentwood and arrived before most of the Essex team.

 

 

My thanks go to the Essex Longbow Team for a fine performance, to the Cambridgeshire team for making us work for our victory, to Mr. Alan Harding for judging the event and to Vince Loss of Burntwood Archers who helped to set up the range for the match.

Typhoon Haiyan Appeal

Congratulations to Jason and Florland with over £2000 raised between them so far. Still time to donate here: In aid of the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal

I have decided to do a sponsored archery shoot to raise money for the people in the Philippines who have been affected by the recent Typhoon. My goal is to raise as much money as possible and to also inspire others to contribute their energy and love to this special cause.

I have the support of Archery GB, Perris Archery, Greg Hill Strings and several other archery based organisations who are assisting me with this task.

I will be shooting at Perris Archery range on Sunday 24th November 2013. I will be shooting 11 Bray rounds, which consists of shooting 330 arrows in 6 hours (with a 30 minute break). This equates to 1 arrow per minute.

The 11 Bray rounds represents the 11 million Filipinos directly affected by the typhoon.

I have set up a virgin money fundraising page which is very easy to donate to. Any sponsorship will be directed to the British Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. Their main objective is to provide food parcels, tents, blankets, mosquito nets, hygiene parcels and a health care unit that will help 30,000 people in need of medical attention.

Please donate here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JasonLapuz 

Please share this event with your friends and family all around the world. I hope you will take the time to support & sponsor me. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Jason Lapuz

Michael Judd's Perfect Start

Michael Judd, fresh from his 2nd in the National Series and being ranked 4th in the country - started the Andy Harris league with a perfect score of 360 for Mayflower in the first match.

This is the first time that this has ever been achieved - Michael Peart managed 359 on four separate occasions but this is the first perfect score in the competition.

Congratulations Michael - that record is yours and cannot be beaten.
