The ABAM is proud to announce the creation of a new pilot program, MYGOLD (Manitoba Youth Games & Olympic Long-term Development) geared toward recurve athletes of the intermediate to advance levels. The program will provide the tools and coaching to take archers from the advanced lessons and introduction to competition stage to the level necessary to meet criteria for Manitoba Games, Canada Games and our Provincial Team Program. The coaches leading the pilot will be Avril Hatherell and Carrie Minion, both long time archers that have recently trained under National Olympic Coach Shawn Riggs, as they continue training in the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) – Competition Development Program. The program details are as follows:
