Steve Ruis, fellow blogger, author and archery coach has written a coaching book “Archery Coaching How To’s”. I have not encountered another book on coaching archery in the past. I think one is sorely needed. I will be adding his book to my library, you may want to do the same. His book is available on Amazon.

Instructional Archery Videos – Archery GB

I found mention of the following videos, in Archery Talk, an online archery forum.These videos are on the Archery GB website, which is the official website for archery in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

This is the toughest question I have been asked, since I still struggle with it and one of my training goals for this year is to work on my mental game. Archery is a lot like golf, you are not competing with anyone…
