England has entered a third period of national lockdown restrictions as of 5th January 2021.
This is expected to last until at least mid-February, and requires non-elite organised sport to cease for the duration of the restrictions.
As a result, all our scheduled shoots are cancelled. We are keeping up to date with the latest UK Government and Archery GB advice, and hope to return to shoots at our Padworth range when it is safe and permitted to do so.
We believe there is a lot that can be done at home to support your return to shooting whenever we're able, so over the lockdown period we'll be providing online support in a number of ways.
Winter Training Programme
We are discussing the best ways to continue our Winter Training Programme over Zoom during the lockdown; please keep an eye on the newsletter emails for further information and updates, as well as our social media pages. We are reguarly carrying out group reversals sessions on Zoom in the meantime; do get in touch if you'd like to know more or get involved with these!
The Hub Forum
Our sign-in area of the website, The Hub, contains a blog and interactive forum open and free of charge to all archers and coaches. While we're all spending more time at home, this is is a great opportunity to share tips and experiences and to pose any questions to our team. We're lucky to have links with experts across field relevant to archery, including top coaches, archery shop owners, personal trainers, sports massage therapists, sports psychologists and more! If you have a question, we can likely find an answer or point you in the right direction!
Hopefully these changes offer some positive options through this challenging time. We're planning to make the most of these silver linings and aim for us all to return to shooting stronger for it! We look forward to seeing you on Zoom and the forum discussions soon, and as ever you can contact us with any further questions or enquiries you might have.
Stay safe and best wishes,
Tom, Imogen & Oli
