Competitive Programming

Our Youth and Adult Competitive Program is focused on assisting archers in building the discipline and dedication necessary to optimize individual skills in combination with training to realize personal goals and potential.

This program provides every participant with a chance to succeed through the development of long-term skills such as confidence, perseverance, sportsmanship, goal setting, respect, a strong work ethic and a sense of accomplishment in their abilities.

Archery teaches participants fundamental movement skills, fundamental sport skills and the ABC’s – agility, balance, coordination and speed – of physical literacy.

Archery’s Long-Term Archer Development (LTAD) model consists of seven stages.

  • Active Start (0 years in sport) – Learn fundamental movement and link them in play settings
  • FUNdementals (0 – 4 years in sport) – Builds overall motor skills with an emphasis on initiation, sport basics and safety.
  • Learn to Shoot (1 – 4 years in sport) – Develops overall sport skills with an emphasis on development of form.
  • Train to Shoot (2 – 8 years in sport) – Establishes an aerobic base, develops speed and strength, and consolidates sport-specific skills
  • Train to Compete (4 – 10 years in sport) – Optimizes physical preparation and sport-specific skills, while learning competition and performance skills
  • Shoot to Excel (7+ years in sports) – Maximizes overall skills and preparation while perfecting focus and flow, and shooting for rankings
  • Shoot for Life (Any Age) – Encourages lifelong participation, whether competitive or recreational, in physical activity and/or sport

XQuest Archery’s Competitive Program will focus on the Learn to Shoot and Train to Shoot stages of Long-Term Archer Development.

Athletes involved in the Competitive Program should be shooting, at a minimum, one other session per week. Youth are eligible for competitive funding through our Competition Recurve Development Fund. (Criteria must be met to be eligible)

Entry into our Competitive Program is limited to 8 participants per category (Youth and Adult) and those interested should speak to our head coach.

Archers spend three hours per week with Coach Doreen Howes and Head Coach, Janice Clark

The Program runs on Saturdays from 1:30 to 4:30 pm.
