Episode 07 - Archers Triangle - the Arrow
In this podcast I am expanding on the concept of the Archers Triangle, focusing on the arrow initially. This covers one of the sides of the triangle and looks at some of the aspects to be considered when thinking about arrows from a traditional archers prospective. I hope you find this of interest and use.

Episode 06 - The Archers Triangle
In this podcast I am going to introduce the concept of the Archers Triangle.  Whether you are a target archer, hunter or field shooter. Archery can be broken down into three components, Archer, Arrow and Bow. These three need to work together successfully for the best outcome. I have found this method of explaining archery to students very useful when coaching as they can easily identify the relationship between the three elements, whilst also useful in focusing them on specific elements as they develop. In future podcasts I will go into each of the three elements in more depth.
