LESSON LICENSED

The World Archery Excellence Centre offers courses catering both elite and grassroots in archery, acting as a development hub for the sport worldwide and a sports centre for community and organisations in Switzerland.

TRAINING CAMPS

Organized training camps will be hosted several times each year. Recurve or Compound, these specialized camps will be delivered by Experts in that field. Here you will learn tips on shooting, equipment tuning, mental aspects, competition preparation and more. Our target audience includes licensed archers from club to regional to international levels.

PRE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TRAINING CAMP

The World Archery Excellence Centre (WAEC) is organizing in its facilities an international training camp as preparation for the World Archery Championships in S’Hertogenbosh (NED).

The objective of this activity is to help national teams competing in the World Archery championships to improve their preparation for this important event. The training camp is planned for the period between the end of the Hyundai Archery World Cup in Antalya and the start of the World Championships. The camp offers countries far from Europe a good solution to prepare the World Championships by staying in Europe in the Schengen area in a “State of the Art” Archery Centre, just 1h by plane from Amsterdam or Eindhoven, instead of returning home between both events. Furthermore, there will be limited availability in the Netherlands due to the Para Championships before the World Championships.

Experts: You can request an intervention from our international coaches (Juan Carlos Holgado (CH)-(ES), Kyeong Su Jeoung (KOR).)

Dates: Starting May 27 and ending June 8. Participants can choose arrival and departure dates.

Registration fee: Training camp daily fee is between CHF 150 to 200 per team/day (exact fee depends on size of the team and number of days).

Information received from teams (number of participants, total days, services requested…) allows the WAEC to provide a final tailored cost offer for the Training Camp.
