USA Archery Indoor Nationals Recap

This past weekend marked the final locations participating in the 2020 JOAD Indoor National Championships as well as the 2020 National Indoor Target Championships. The final three of thirteen events were held in Salt Lake City Utah, Harrisonburg VA, and Mason MI. Over 5,000 athletes participated in the combined results. 

The first is a single day event open to members of a JOAD Program and uses targets associated with the programs structure. Most notably is that recurve archers under the age of 15 use a 60cm size target. In years past compound was given the “Big” 10 as well, but that was changed a few years back due to the confusion it caused when archers then participated in Indoor Nationals the following days with only the little 10. 

Our team performed very well, and I am extremely proud of them as a group. They behaved like professionals, kept their composure and demonstrated a consistent use of their mental program. Our goal is to shoot the same as they do in practice. If you do that at a big event like this, then you had a very successful day. While not all managed to shoot their practice scores, I saw good use of the mental techniques they have been taught to manage the emotional reactions and fight through the best they could. Teamates actively supported each other all weekend long.

One archer in particular that stood out has been struggling with a severe case of target panic and choose to compete despite knowing their performance would be significantly less than what they were capable of. Instead of score, we focused on smaller form and processed based goals. We tracked their progress on those goals and celebrated those successes. 

The weekend also saw tremendous personal achievements of athletes Rising to the moment. Multiple archers achieved personal bests. In fact, one archer shot 4 new personal bests over the course of 3 days, another tied a personal best then beat it twice more as well. I believe out of our 27 participants, 5 shot new personal bests. 

I also want to take a moment to acknowledge Brooke Patrician who achieved not only a new personal best but also achieved her Bronze Olympian with a score of 285/300 in her last game of the tournament.

Congratulations to the participants and thank you to the parents that support their athletes.
