Online Performance Session

25 August, 2020

Hi Members

Need some inspiration to keep focussed with your training during challenging Covid times? 

Archery NZ is proud to bring you an online session run by Olympic Ambassador, Richie Patterson.

Richie is a storyteller and is looking forward to meeting archers online to share his journey and insights from his successful career as an Olympic athlete.  He is a 3-time Olympian (2008, 2012, 2016), 4 times Commonwealth Games participant

Richie Patterson fully understands the virtue of patience.  A weightlifter since the age of 15, he’s been competing for 18 years – a long time to endure the intensity and pressure of high-level competition.  His success comes down to having a long-term plan. Patterson approaches his training “by looking at the grandstand – the big picture”; he breaks it down into small, manageable goals. Each training session fits into a larger plan for that week, which fits into the plan for that month, which fits into a plan for the next competition, and then the next Olympic cycle.  That’s where mental endurance comes into play.  In weightlifting, there’s a huge amount of repetition (just like archery).  “There’s not a lot that’s left to chance. You predetermine your outcome by how much work you’ve done.

WHEN: Saturday September 29th 

TIME: 12.40pm for a 12.45pm start

WHERE: Online via Zoom
