Junior Development Days are being conducted for young members of the Byron Shire Archery Club.

The purpose of the development days is to help young archers of the club gain the necessary physical and mental skills to reach their archery goals, whether that is to win the club championship or become an international champion.

In the first sessions the club introduces the importance of keeping a shooting diary and setting goals.

The second half of the sessions uses video playback to analyse the archer’s techniques noting where improvements can be made. Participants range from complete newcomers to regular competitors.

In May the club will be holding the second annual South of the Border Showdown, a tournament aimed at young aspiring archers.
