Coaching the Mind

We have scheduled the second in a series of talks aimed at assisting coaches with their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). It will be held at Perris Rettendon on Tuesday 10th July starting at 19:30.

Presented by Mark Wiseman, this will cover the broad topic of coaching the mind and emotional states in young archers. Mark has a background in Leadership training in the commercial sector. He has worked with a number of young archers over the years, helping them to develop their potential and helping several earn their place on the GB squad. Mark's fee will be donated to the Children with Cancer charity which goes to enriching the lives of young people who have this disease.

If you are planning to attend it would be appreciated if you could indicate your interest on the Facebook event or send a quick email to the Guild Secretary so that we get a rough idea as to numbers. Please bring a chair if possible!

Points can be claimed for attending either or both events. We appreciate that the topics will be of interest outside the coaching community, so the events are open to all archers in Essex & Suffolk. Admission to both events will be by donations on the door.  [11/06/2018]
