  • STRAIGHT ARROW: NASP archers and target panic

    Here lately I have been working with more of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) archers. Some are being sent by their coaches who have their hands full just working with the number of kids they have participating in the sport, and have trouble giving enough individual attention to those having problems.

    It seems a lot of kids — actually most archers — reach a peak, and then all of a sudden their scores fall off and they start struggling. Almost all problems are related to target panic.
