As the colors of the scenery start to change, it is the sign that our outdoor season in done and it’s time to move Indoor. It’s time for archery clubs across Alberta to fire up their youth programs and start another Indoor season. With the Olympics and Paralympics finished in London and films like the Hunger Games, there is a buzz of excitement in the air for archery. One of our young archery best described it as “a very cool family sport”. With growing membership across the province it is the responsibly of the executives to keep the ship going in the right direction. This means that we need more coaches and judges. If you think you would like one of these positions to help your club and ATAA please go to the web site and give your name and become involved.

The executive is currently working on many projects such as a trailer with targets, stands, timer and power plant that would help smaller clubs to help them put on an Indoor or Outdoor shoot. We are now working on strategic planning to give direction and policies for our organization for the next 3-5 years. We are also working on High performance clinics and planning for the next Canada Winter Games in 3 years. The planning for the Alberta Winter Games in Canmore and Banff in 2014 is well underway. We are updating the website with forms and information on how to start a club, register a shoot and many more to make it easier for your clubs. Enjoy the new archery season with your families and friends until we meet again.
