June 24 7 25:FOCUS:Steady Eyes at Aim; Steady Bow Arm at release"

We hope you will come out and shoot with us this weekend!
We will be closed next weekend (July 1st & 2nd) for Summer Break and classes resume July 8th.
For the new archers, if you'd like to join us- please ARRIVE 20 minutes EARLY TO GET YOUR GEAR AND BE ON LINE AT THE CLASS START TIME.

Training June  24 & 25 "FOCUS: Eyes Steady, Bowarm steady"

No classes next weekend July 1st & 2nd Closed for Summer Break

Training: "FOCUS, Eyes Steady!"
"Steady Eyes at Aim; Steady Bow Arm at release" 
Aiming requires just a few seconds- but does require the few seconds, and we teach the basic 1,2,3 timing from the beginning. Aiming is not done until the archer reaches “hold”. Aiming before that, produces inconsistent results.
Consciously get to hold, then allow  the time to focus through the aperture to the point you are aiming at. For bare--bow shooters-although there is no focus through the aperture-the training is the same.
A common break in eye focus is watching the arrow in flight-a quick turn of the head results in a change of eye focus right at the last second, changing the aiming point. Eyes should remain on the target at the chosen aiming point –“laser pointed”; head remains steady, fingers are released by the last rotation and coil of the scapula to the spine.
The bow arm stays steady "until you hear the arrow hit the paper". We see many archers dropping the bow arm "with" the shot. Yes a wrist snap occurs, but a steady bow arm- solid as a steel post, can tighten up your group, and often results in picking up an extra point or two.

Take a look at world champion Brady Ellison and how his eye focus and bow arm remains at the target after the release of the arrow.

May 27 & 28, 2017: "Sit Dog" wrist snap

NEWS: Summer Camp info: http://www.learnarchery.com/ArcherySummerCamp2017.html
Conducted by Coach Shantelle Mitchell
June 5-9; M-F.
9:30 - 11:30, Pitner Road Park

Training May 27 & 28

Training:
 Sit Dog!! Wrist Snap Hand position, and learn to make a sling

Bring a shoelace-wide , long (can be colorful or with a pattern if you like) to learn to make your own bow slings, sized to fit your hand.
You Tube video of how to make a sling:

http://www.learnarchery.com/ArcheryEquipmentSelection.html


We started basic training with “halt dog” to get the proper “v” in our bow hand position. Depending on the type of bow and style you shoot, gripping of the bow and dropping the bow arm creates errors at the last moment of the shot, and the idea is to shoot the bow and arrow at the same time…so the hand holding the bow must be relaxed, but purposeful ,so the sling can do its job as the bow seemingly “jumps” from the hand toward the target and rotates as the sling catches it.
From the wrist: “sit dog!” a snap at the wrist, with the sling doing the work to catch the bow. Bow arm stays STEADY.


.

(courtesy KSL International, SPT's)
Only the wrist snaps downward, with slight tension in the open thumb of the bow hand...bow arm stays steady-does NOT drop.
