Scottish Archery are expanding the domestic funding available for those that compete at the youth festival.
Entries are open for the 2019 Youth Festival taking place at Lilleshall from the 28th July until 2nd August. The festival is a key event and mock international. If there is one competition to go to as a junior archer this is it. Information about the event is available here.
All those attending the Youth Festival will be able to benefit from our new domestic funding to be awarded by the performance subcommittee based upon performance at the event in line with our domestic funding criteria. The document details funding for top 4 finishes, however for the youth festival this will be expanded to make an award to anyone finishing in the top 32. The funds to be awarded based upon performance will be available to all Archery GB members affiliated through Scottish Archery.
By promoting and providing additional funding for the youth festival we will not be committing to sending a team to compete at the youth home nations. Funding is still available for those attending the junior national outdoor championships inline with the domestic funding criteria.
Please forward the director of performance a copy of the confirmation email for entry into the Youth Festival (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Youth Festival was moved last year to not clash with the Scottish school year in order to ensure this event remains accessible to Scottish archers it’s important that Scottish archers continue to attend the event.
With this in mind please encourage others to attend this event through word of mouth and social media.
