Trying to make a dream come true.

Posted 29-02-2008 at 11:40 by Ski

Trying to make a dream come true.

As a competitive Archer and Archery coach it is my dream to set up an archery school in the hope of introducing young people and their families into the sport, with the possibility of the next Olympic hopeful for the 2012 Olympics coming from Hyndburn.

The sport teaches concentration skills, hand eye coordination, respect and etiquette in a very safe and controlled environment.

Children with ADHD that I have observed, whilst enjoying the sport have shown vastly improved levels of concentration and manual dexterity during the lessons.

Many who have taken up archery both young and older have enjoyed the sport and I have practiced with a range of other archers from 8 to 80 both male and female and some who use a wheel chair as standing is not possible.

All I need to make this dream a reality is support from the community and a building big enough to set up a range. This facility will help to keep the bored off the streets, add a new dimension to the sports available to local schools, and create a social group and to put Hyndburn on the map as a resource for producing champions. My dream will be the archery version of the Velodrome in Manchester.

I wonder - Can dreams really come true in Hyndburn?

    Well it has taken several years and yes dreams can come true.
    All that I have hoped has finally happened.
    "014 will be a good year for archery - for Accrington and the future of Archery in the North West.
