COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is pleased to introduce the coaching staff for the 2020 Regional Elite Development (RED) Program. The mission of the RED Program is to develop compound and recurve athletes, through the USA Archery athlete competenciesand High-Performance Ethos, who are competitive nationally and internationally. The RED Program was expanded to include compound in 2020 and regional and national camps will now be composed of both recurve and compound athletes and coaches.
The RED Program is designed for athletes ages 13-17 who are looking to accelerate their performance with intent on making a national or international team. The coaching staff will utilize age appropriate training plans to further develop the athlete’s but also look to develop the athlete’s personal coaches for long-term success. Through RED, athletes will also develop teamwork, interpersonal, mental, communication and leadership skills.
Level 5-NTS Coach Linda Beck, a pioneer in youth archery development and coaching best practices commented: "As a Coach for USA Archery athlete development programs which preceded, Regional Elite Development (RED), I am excited for the 2020 initiative to combine recurve and compound disciplines for camps. Combining disciplines provides an opportunity to meet new friends and learn from each other. Recurve and compound shooting technique are truly more similar than different. The 2020 coaching staffs' across all regions is incredibly deep with knowledgeable, experienced coaches who have either coached archers or they themselves were named to USAT teams or podium finishes at National events. I encourage archers to take advantage of this wealth of coaching knowledge by applying for RED program in your area."
