Intensive Training Camp - From the 5th - 12th January 2013 we had a very successful intensive training camp in Windhoek at the SKW Archers range. 12 archers from under 13 to adult practiced and refined the basic archery skills under supervision of Dr Josef Preisser. The day was started with warming-up and strengthening exercises, there after the archers shot execution was perfected step by step. The archers learned how to set-up their equipment to perfect bow tuning. After seven days in sunny Namibian weather , 36 degrees Celsius and more, the archers had a tough time. Yet their enthusiasm and efforts paid off and the participants showed already after this short time an improvement. With a strong mindset the Namibian archers will go ahead in 2013.
