USA Archery Congratulates 2017 Regional Dream Team Members
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - Last year, USA Archery introduced a new program into its athlete development pipeline: The Regional Dream Team (RDT). A prerequisite program for recurve archers who would like to attend Recurve JDT camp as an invitee, the East and West Regional Dream Teams are comprised of dedicated and promising recurve archers from each region of the country. This self-funded program is for archers looking to improve their skills and gain access to the best-quality training in some of the most excellent archery training facilities in the world with a dedicated set of USA Archery certified coaches.
In the first year of the program, there were four RDT camps, two in each region. After careful consideration by the RDT coaching staff, USA Archery is proud to congratulate the inaugural members of each RDT. RDT Head Coach Linda Beck commented: "I would like to congratulate all the archers who attended a Regional Dream Team camp in 2016. These camps provided archers with opportunities to learn techniques to improve their shooting skills. Archers spent many hours training with light weight bows, utilizing a variety of feedback systems: mirrors, video, and coach observation. All archers worked hard to learn and improve. Special thanks to our RDT Coaching staff: Victor Chia, Eric Tollefson, Mike Perrego and Doug Ludwig."
Archers interested in attending 2017 RDT camps can apply online here. The RDT-West camps will take place in Phoenix, Arizona this April, Salt Lake City, Utah in May and Chula Vista, California in late November. There will be an RDT-East camp in Rockford, Michigan in June.
Congratulations to the following members of RDT-West:
