Coaches' Corner

On this page you will find expert advice from our coaching team along with other information to enhance your performance and enjoyment of the sport. If you do not find what you are looking for, then just ask one of the Club's coaches.

Club coaches will normally be available on Club Nights to answer questions, assist in improving your skills or helping you to overcome any problems you encounter in your shooting.
If you feel you need help, do please approach one of the coaches and we will be happy to talk to you.

Arrow Grouping 

If your arrows are grouping either left or right of the target, it does not automatically mean that your arrows are of the wrong spine. It is a possibility that your arrows are out of spine but there are so many other reasons for this to happen. Some examples are:  

  • Arrows hitting arrow rest
  • Badly tuned pressure button
  • Inconsistent release
  • Bow not tuned  

If your arrows are consistently left or right of the target, seek advice. If it is one or two arrows that are off target then it is possibly something that you are doing.
