Nutrition for performance

Kath Fitzpatrick - 2 September 2019

Saturday September 28th
Venue: Arrowhawks West at Aire Valley indoor range, Keighley Business centre, South Street, Keighley.
Morning session: Arrowhawks archers and parents
Afternoon session: coaches and archers

This consists of a 1.5 hour workshop with Jackie Wilkinson, professional nutritionist working across sport and business to enhance performance through attention to nutrition. Jackie is also an archer and was for many years a member of the GB Field Squad and International team.

The interactive presentation will cover:
 How the body uses food
 Where our energy comes from
 What to eat for a shoot
 When to eat it

Following the workshop, Jackie will then offer one-to-one or small group advice on diet, nutrition, hydration to improve and sustain energy levels during competition (and daily life) and enhance sporting performance.

This is a much neglected but important element in sports performance so we are offering an opportunity to learn more from someone who not only knows the theory but also the application within our sport.

There will also be an opportunity for archers to access the shooting range in the morning, and for Arrowhawks archers to shoot in the afternoon in the 20 yard range next to the classroom area with our coaches. Cost: 10.00 for the day. Please bring your own lunch - tea, coffee etc will be provided. CPD certificates will be provided for those AGB qualified coaches and coach candidates.

To book please contact Kath Fitzpatrick:

Cheques payable to: Kath Fitzpatrick Associates.
