Align Feet and Bow; Quadrant training. Indoor equipment options
Now is the time to shift gear over to indoor equipment. We will review some options.
ARROWS: moving to indoor arrows-what gives the advantage?
Training: Arrow Patterns, Quadrant training.
After warming up with a few rounds to get sighted in, we will work on specific training with "blue tape" and “bare shaft”
Where are your arrows landing? What quadrant? We will section targets off with the tape and as you shoot , rather than focus on the Gold, focus on process, and you will see the pattern and how they reveal what to adjust in equipment or form. I will have sheets for you to record patterns over various ends.
Numbering arrows, shooting them in order
This process gives indications as to arrow errors, or form errors, and shows up in the patterns. It's easier with your own set of arrows because you begin to notice groups forming within the dozen arrows you shoot, but still very effective with the program arrows. Shooting 1,2,3,4,5,6 then 6,5,4,3,2,1...if 6 is always out no matter which sequence you shoot, it is not you. Arrow nocks can be off just a hair and cause variations.
