A new indoor archery training facility has opened in Bedfordshire.
Aim4Sport has opened up an indoor coaching range after hearing about the problems that can hold up indoor sessions. Dave Leader and Gaynor Hutchison, owners of Aim4Sport, explained, “Looking at the current club set up around the area we realised there was a lack of training facilities.” Dave went on to explain that, with indoor facilities at a premium, clubs often only have one or two nights a week in which to practice, and that coaching can often hold up the shooting line and prevent experienced shooters from getting a round in. Coaches can face further problems when it comes to facilities too, dependent on the kind of space the club has access to.
Dave said, “At Aim4sport we have expanded our current training centre to offer coaches far and wide the opportunity of teaching without any of the above mentioned issues, and after a lot of blood, sweat and tears the training centre is now open.
“We are looking to offer the centre for coaches to set up regular coaching sessions for their club members.”
The centre features six indoor bosses, and can offer short distance shooting as well as a full 18m range. Heaters have been set up in the shooting area, a fully-equipped workshop will be made available to use, which features a compound bow-press and arrow cutter, and there is also a meeting room that can seat up to 14 people in front of a wide screen display with free wi-fi available.
Particularly significant is the all-new four-way camera facility. The archer can be filmed from four different angles simultaneously, the footage can be analysed in Dartfish, and can made available to the archer to take away and review after the coaching session.
Coaches can book slots throughout the week, from 10am to 9pm Monday to Thursday, and 9am to 4pm on Saturday. Booking the facilities can cost from just £10 per archer, and there’s a discount available for block bookings.
