EA Development Squad
After successfully running the The East Area of Scotland Development Squad last year with two of the squad members progressing to the Scottish National Squad, Moira is once again running the squad this year!
The development Squad is for archers who have achieved First Class or Bowman level and is a structured programme designed to help archers progress to Master Bowman and therefore eligible to be picked for the Scottish National Squad.
Five of our members, Phyllis Pettett, Nessa Dunsmore, Patricia Malone, Toni Smillie and Alan Martin were invited on to the squad which ran it's first squad day on 20 February 2016. The staff involved in the day consisted of a mixture of coaches and some of the top Recurve and Compound archers in Scotland, four of whom have shot internationally for Great Britian, so a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience being passed on to the squad.
