My goal as an archer for 2023, rank in the top 25 nationally and shoot for the County again. I was delighted to achieve all 3, getting MB, ranking 24th nationally Gents Longbow and shooting for the County 3 times. To crown it all myself, Kev Macey and Sean Kains won team gold in Gents Longbow at the National County Teams Championship, and along with Judy Kessler, Grace Curran and Tricia Pillay (who won Ladies Longbow gold) also won the mixed teams gold medal.
My season was cut short because of ill health in the family but I’ve continued coaching and am so proud of the juniors I work with and what they’ve achieved through their hard work – national team selection shoot scores, many PBs, 2nd in the Junior Archery Series amongst others – but most of all while enjoying themselves.
I’m also embarking on a WA level 3 coaching course in Lausanne to help me keep up with their progress!
