9. 2014 Archery Canada Indoor Mail Match Program

January 2014 is fast-approaching and it is time to start thinking about another Indoor Mail Match season. The Mail Match Program is an excellent competition for the archer who cannot get to any of the larger tournaments held during the winter months. It also gives the archer an idea as to how other archers are shooting by comparison. This competition is also good practice for tournaments but under less stressful conditions. More information can be found on the Archery Canada website, visit:http://www.archerycanada.ca/en/tournaments/mailmatches

A reminder that all recurve, barebow, and pre-cub & cub compounds score outer 10's with the remainder of compounds scoring inner 10's. The scorecards no longer have the removal of the 10's for compounds so please make sure to mark your cards accordingly. Scorecards can be found on the Archery Canada website at: http://www.archerycanada.ca/en/tournaments/mailmatches

If you wish to join the Mail Match Program, contact your club president or secretary.

12. Canadian Archers Stand on Podium at Archery Continental Qualifying Tournament

for 2014 Youth Olympic Games

Canadian archer David Van der Spek (Sidney, BC) finished on top of the

podium at the Continental Qualifying Archery Tournament in Buenos Aires, Argentina yesterday. The

tournament served as the Americas Regional Qualifying Tournament for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games

that will take place in Nanjing, China from August 16 – 28, 2014.

In winning the tournament, Van der Spek earned one of only two quota spots for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games, that were available to the male recurve bow archers from the Americas Region countries that competed. Archers must be between 15-17 years of age in 2014 in order to be age eligible for the Youth Olympic Games.

Joining Van der Spek on the podium was fellow Canadian athlete Joel Vézina-Boucher (Lasalle, QC).

Vézina-Boucher finished an impressive third place behind the silver medalist from Venezuela.

"These are outstanding results for these young archers. It's a tremendous learning experience for their

development as young athletes and as future high performance athletes", said Joan

McDonald, Canada's 2012 Olympic Head Coach for Archery.

Van der Spek was a member of the Canadian Team that competed at the World Youth Archery

Championship held earlier this Fall in Wuxi, China. The World Youth Championship also served as the

first opportunity for young athletes from around the world to earn quota spots for their country for the 2014

Youth Olympic Games. Although not successful in securing a quota spot at the World Championship, Van

der Spek left no doubt about his intentions in Buenos Aires yesterday. "What a feeling to stand on top of

the podium. This is a real confidence booster for me and for Joel too", said Van der Spek.

13. Canadian Olympic Committee Awards $320,000 to 64 Summer Athletes

On December 14th the Canadian Olympic Committee announced an injection of $320,000 to 64 female and male summer athletes across the country, as part of the Athlete Excellence Fund. Canadian recurve archer Crispin Duenas is one of the 64 year one summer Athlete Excellence Fund recipients. The fund is awarded to athletes based on results from international competition. This year, the top five athletes in each Olympic summer sport, will receive $5,000 to assist in their journey to the podium.

The fund is structured over a four year phase, with each cycle starting in the year preceding a Games. Year one and two eligibility criteria stipulate that the top five athletes from each sport, based on ranking performance will be entitled to $5,000. In year three (pre-Olympic year), guidelines stipulate the same, but for only the top four performers. In the fourth year (Olympic year), athletes will receive $20,000, $15,000 and $10,000 for a gold, silver and bronze medal respectively.

"The Athlete Excellence Fund is a fantastic initiative and one that not only supports our athletes, but helps motivate them to work even harder each and every day," said Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee. "Congratulations to each one of our recipients this year. I am looking forward to many more outstanding results on the road to Rio 2016." ________________________________________________________________________________

16. Archery Coach Receives the Jack Donohue Coaching Award

The Coaches of Canada recently awarded Canadian archery coach Joan McDonald with the prestigious Jack Donohue Award. The Award is named after the late and legendary coach of the Canadian National Basketball Team, Jack Donohue. Each year Coaches of Canada recognizes a member coach who exemplifies the great qualities that made Jack Donohue a legendary coach. These qualities include honesty, integrity, a positive attitude, competitiveness, a love of the sport, and the belief that sport is about more than wins and losses. Furthermore, he taught his athletes about life, about experiences, about a passion to play for Canada. The recipient of the Jack Donohue Award is selected by the Board of Directors of Coaches of Canada and is honoured at the annual Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala (held this year in Calgary on November 8th).

Joan McDonald is the personal coach of Crispin Duenas, who won the bronze medal in the Men's Recurve Bow category earlier this Fall at the 2013 World Archery Championship in Belek Antalya, Turkey. The bronze medal marked the first time in 42 years that Canada had finished on the podium at a World Championship in the Men's Recurve individual category. McDonald has been personal coach to Duenas for the past 13 years. She serves as the volunteer Technical Coordinator for Archery Canada and is a five-time Head Olympic Coach (most recently the London 2012 Olympic Games).

"I am honoured and humbled to have won this prestigious award. "Jack Donohue was an amazing coach who created great basketball teams but more importantly he created sensational people", said McDonald. "I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the Coaches of Canada."

Archery Canada's Executive Director, Scott Ogilvie stated: "This is a tremendous honour for Joan and also for Canadian archery. Archery Canada is very proud of Joan's accomplishment. Her body of work is outstanding. Without a doubt Joan exemplifies the qualities required for this prestigious award."

_______________________________________________________________________________

17. Archery Coach Honoured at Sport Leadership Awards Gala

Canadian Archery coach Joan McDonald was one of a number of Canada's top coaches that were honoured at the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala, hosted by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), this past weekend in Calgary. McDonald was a recipient of the Petro-Canada Coaching Excellence Award. This prestigious award recognizes coaches whose athletes have excelled at World Championships, Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Special Olympics World Games.

McDonald is the personal coach of Crispin Duenas who won the bronze medal in the Men's Recurve Bow category at the 2013 World Archery Championship in Belek Antalya, Turkey (September 29th - October 6th). The bronze medal marked the first time in 42 years that Canada had finished on the podium at a World Championship in the Men's Recurve individual category.

McDonald has been personal coach to Duenas for the past 13 years. She is also the founder and Head Coach of the Bullseye Buccanneers Archery Club in Richmond Hill, Ontario. McDonald has been instrumental in the development of Duenas as an archer from the 'Learn to Shoot' stage of Archery Canada's Long-Term Archer Development (LTAD) model through to the 'Shoot to Excel' stage. "Joan's confidence in my abilities and her keen attention to the coaching of the technical and psychological aspects of archery, have led to my steady progress and success at the national and international levels", said Duenas. "I have no doubt that without Joan's coaching and guidance, I wouldn't have been on the podium at Worlds. I'm also sure that under Joan's continued coaching, I'm on the path to a long and successful career as a high performance archer."

"I'm thrilled and honoured to have won this prestigious award. Crispin is a tremendous young man and athlete with lots of potential", said McDonald. "My sincere thanks and appreciation to Petro-Canada and the CAC."

1.         Crispin Duenas Brings Home Bronze Medal from World Archery Championship 

In a field of 145 athletes from 62 countries, two-time Canadian Olympian, Crispin DUENAS of Toronto captured the bronze medal in the Men’s Recurve bow (Olympic) individual category on Sunday at the 2013 World Archery Championship in Belek Antalya, Turkey (September 29th - October 6th). The bronze medal marked the first time in 42 years that Canada had finished on the podium at a World Championship in the Men’s Recurve individual category.

In the bronze medal match, Duenas who is 27 years old, won his first-ever World Championship medal. After defeating a string of top opponents in the elimination rounds (including 2012 Olympic silver medallist Takaharu Furukawa of Japan and 2012 World Cup medallist Markiyan Ivashko of Ukraine), the 2012 and 2008 Canadian Olympian faced China’s Dai Xiaoxiang for the first time in competition. Against the reigning individual Olympic bronze medallist and World Cup Final silver medallist, Duenas stormed to victory in just three sets. Under the pressure to deliver a 10 with his last arrow to win, Duenas blasted an arrow down for a perfect score. “Surprisingly, it felt easy to execute my shot”, Duenas commented. “It’s my first time out here in front of this big crowd at the World Championship, and I’m just really happy right now. I just kept it in my head that it’s exactly the same thing that I’m doing all the time. It made it a lot easier for me.” Battling for the gold and silver medals were two athletes from Korea, including the 2012 Olympic individual champion.

Joining Duenas in the individual competition were fellow Canadians Jason (Jay) Lyon of Winnipeg and Hugh MacDonald of Vancouver.  Lyon had a strong showing finishing in 8th place. This year’s World Championship marked the first time Canada has placed two athletes in the top eight. Lyon is a 2008 Olympian and finished 10th in Beijing. At the 2011 World Archery Championship, Lyon finished 5th and was the silver medallist in the recurve bow category at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games. MacDonald was the Alternate for the 2008 Olympic Archery Team and is also a veteran of international competition.

In the Men’s Recurve team competition, Duenas, Lyon and MacDonald placed 7th. This is the best performance for a Canadian Men’s Recurve team since 1971 when the Canadian team won bronze at that year’s World Championship. The Canadians entered this year’s World Championship on the heels of a 4th place finish at the World Cup of Archery held in Medellin, Colombia this July. “These three athletes have a history of performing well as a team. A 7th    place finish at the World Championship is a tremendous accomplishment. Once again they knocked-off a really strong Mexican team. Finishing 7th at the Worlds and 4th at the Medellin World Cup earlier this season, will be a real confidence booster going into the 2014 season”, said Joan McDonald, the 2012 Olympic Head Archery Coach.

The 2013 World Championship was the second consecutive World Championship at which

a Canadian archery athlete finished on the medal podium. At the 2011 World Championship,

Christopher Perkins (Athens, ON) won the gold medal in the Men’s Compound bow individual

category. Perkins finished out of the medals at this year’s Championship but had a strong 6th

place finish. In the Compound bow team event, Perkins was joined by fellow compound bow

archers, Dietmar Trillus (King City, ON) and Andrew Fagan (Ajax, ON). The team placed 9th

after being ousted by the eventual gold medallists from Denmark. On the women’s side, the

Canadian Women’s Compound team placed a strong 7th. The Women’s Compound team was

comprised of Fiona McClean (Windsor, ON), Ashley Wallace (Redcliff, AB), and Sonia Schina

(Coquitlam, BC).

Joan McDonald, the 2012 Olympic Head Coach, reflected on the World Championship stating that “this was a break-through World Championship for Canadian men’s recurve bow archery. This bodes well for the 2015 Toronto Pan-American Games and the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Canada has been a strong nation in compound bow men’s and women’s archery, over the past 5 - 7 years. We’re making our mark internationally in both archery categories!”  

Listed below are the athletes and staff that comprised the National Team for the 2013 World Archery Championship. The World Archery Championship takes place every two years. All athletes competed in the individual and team events. A team is comprised of three archers.

Both the recurve and compound bow categories are contested at the World Archery

2.         Silver for Canada at World Youth Archery Championship

Canada finished the 2013 World Youth Archery Championship in Wuxi,

China on a high note as the Men’s Team in the Cadet (age class) Compound Bow category won the

silver medal. The Canadian Team, comprised of Hunter McGinnis (Winnipeg, MB), Logan Kupchanko

(Regina, SK) and Tyler Murphy (Fredericton, NB), faced Turkey in the gold medal match on Saturday.

After building an early lead, Turkey prevailed in winning the match by a score of 224-218. Kupchanko

followed in the footsteps of his older brother Michael who was a member of the Junior Men’s Compound

Team that won the gold medal for Canada at the 2011 World Youth Archery Championship.  

Before facing the second-seed Turkey, the Canadians had upset two of the favourites in the elimination

rounds. Canada upset the fourth-seed from Russia in the quarter-finals and in the process set a World

record. In the semi-final, the Canadians once again proved to be ‘dragon slayers’ as they knocked-off top-

seeded Mexico. Mexico went on to beat the USA in the bronze medal match.

Earlier at the Championship, Brittany Johnson of Cranbrook, BC, advanced to the quarter-finals in the

Women’s Junior Compound Bow Individual category. Johnson and her Colombian competitor were in a

see-saw battle right to the final arrow. The Colombian prevailed, winning by one point and advancing to

the semi-final round. Johnson finished a very respectable 8th place in a field of 37 athletes from 19

The young contingent of Canadian athletes performed well at the World Championship and picked-up

valuable international experience. No other Canadian athletes advanced to the elimination round (round

  • of 16). The World Youth Archery Championship ended on Sunday, October 20th.

The World Youth Archery Championship also served as the first archery qualifying event for next year’s

Youth Olympic Games to be held in Nanjing, China. Young male and female Recurve Bow archers

competed in this special qualification tournament, held separate from the Championship rounds, to claim

the first available competitor places for their countries. Seventeen young men and 17 young women won

quota spots at this qualifying event. Canada had two entries - Eric Peters (Ottawa, ON) and David Van

der Spek (Sidney, BC). Neither athlete was successful in their efforts to secure a quota spot for Canada.

Only the Recurve Bow category is contested at the Youth Olympic Games. 

Canadian athletes competed in the individual and team events (in those categories noted below having the full three athletes comprising a team). To be eligible to compete in the Cadet age bracket, an athlete must be 17 years or younger on December 31st of the current year. For an athlete to compete as a Junior they must be 20 years or younger on December 31st of the current year. The World Youth Archery Championship takes place every two years.

3.         Canadian Results at the World 3D Archery Championship

 

Canada’s 3D Archery National Team finished competing over the weekend at the

2013 World 3D Archery Championship held in Sassari, Italy from October 8 – 12. The Canadians had high

hopes to again stand on the podium as they did at the 2011 World 3D Archery Championship where they

won a gold and silver medal. However, it was not to be this time around. The host nation Italy hauled in

nine medals to dominate this year’s 3D Championship.

Although no Canadians reached the podium, the Canadian Team performed well and have all secured

a World ranking. Three Canadians advanced to the elimination round and a chance for the medals.

Leading the way was Fred Streleoff of Williams Lake, BC. Streleoff had an outstanding elimination round

to finish 5th in the Men’s Individual Instinctive Bow category. Jude Hooey (Lethbridge, AB) and Lana Perry

(Sault Ste Marie, ON) both advanced to the elimination round in the Women’s Individual Compound Bow

category. They finished 15th and 16th respectively.

“The level of competition is really strong and close”, said Team Leader Ann Neumeyer of Nobleford, Alberta. “Often it comes down to one shot to determine the medallists. If you miss an 11 or 10 (target score), your placing drops fast. The European competitors are extremely accomplished.”

Listed below are the athletes and staff of the 2013 Canadian 3D Archery Team. The World 3D Archery Championship takes place every two years.  For the full results, visit the World Archery website at:

Yet another Canadian Outdoor Championships has come to a close. The Woodstock Archery Club and the Sussex Golden Arrows Archery Club, played host to the 2013 Canadian Outdoor 3D, Field & Target Championships from August 2 – 10, 2013. They also hosted the National Team Selection Trials for the Senior World Championship. Not since 2005 have the 3D, Field and Target Championships been held back-to-back in the same location.

3.         2011 World Champion Chris Perkins Sets Archery World Record

 

Defending World Champion Chris Perkins of Athens, Ontario, set a World record at the recent 2013 Canadian Archery Championship held in Woodstock, New Brunswick.  Despite day long rainfall, which at times was heavy, Perkins scored an incredible 715 points out of a possible 720. Over the course of the 720 Round competition, which is shot at a distance of 50 metres from the target, compound archers shoot a total of 72 arrows. A bullseye or perfect score is 10 points per arrow. The bullseye or 10 point ring is only 8cm in diameter or just over 3 inches.  Of the 72 arrows shot, Perkins had 67 arrows in the 10 ring. An incredible feat!

  

The World record performance secured the 2013 Canadian Championship for Perkins. Earlier in the week Perkins won the National Team Trials to earn a spot on the Canadian Team that will compete at the 2013 World Archery Championship this Fall.

 

At 19 and still a junior age athlete, Perkins was crowned the 2011 World Champion in the Men’s Individual Compound Bow category. His most recent World record performance bodes well for the 2013 World Championship taking place in Antalya, Turkey, from September 29th-October 7th.

 

Congratulations Chris!

Congratulations and thank you to all the above appointed staff!

6.         Archery Canada Announces Team for 2013 World Senior Archery Championship

 

World Champion Christopher Perkins (Athens, ON) and 2008 and 2012 Olympian Crispin Duenas (Toronto, ON) will lead a strong team of Canadian archers to the 2013 World Archery Championship in Antalya, Turkey, September 29th - October 7th. Athletes named by Archery Canada for the 2013 World Archery Championships were selected during the National Team Trials, held last week in Woodstock, New Brunswick.

 

Both Perkins and Duenas finished first at the Canadian Trials in their respective bow category. Perkins competes in the compound bow category while Duenas competes in the recurve bow category. Only the recurve bow is contested at the Olympic Games while both bow categories are contested at the bi-annual World Archery Championships.

 

Chris Perkins will be joined by fellow compound bow archers, Dietmar Trillus (King City, ON) and Andrew Fagan (Ajax, ON) in the individual and team events. Trillus, the wily veteran of the National Team, won the 2007 World Championship and the 2008 World Cup Final and has won numerous World Cup events since that time. Most recently, Trillus brought home the bronze medal from this season’s 3rd World Cup of Archery held this July in Medellin, Colombia. Fagan has competed in a number of World Cup events over the past few years. In 2010, Fagan was a member of the Commonwealth Games Archery Team and gained valuable international experience. He has made steady improvement at the international level since that time.

 

“The Men’s Compound Team is very strong and will definitely be one of the favourites in the team event”, said Joan McDonald, Head Coach of Canada’s Archery Team for the 2012 London Olympic Games.  “Chris and Dietmar will be in the medal hunt in the individual event. All three athletes are rounding into top form going into the Worlds”, added McDonald.       

 

In the Men’s Recurve Bow category, Canada is also fielding a strong team. In addition to being a two-time Olympian, Crispin Duenas captured the silver medal at the 2011 Pan-American Games. At these Games he narrowly lost to the 2011 World Champion from the USA. Joining Duenas in the recurve bow individual and team events will be Jay Lyon (Winnipeg, MB) and Hugh MacDonald (Vancouver, BC). The 2013 World Championship will mark the 5th World Senior Championship at which Lyon and Duenas have competed. Lyon is a 2008 Olympian and finished 10th in Beijing. At the 2011 World Championship, Lyon finished 5th, achieving a best-ever performance for a Canadian male recurve archer at a World Championship. Lyon was also the silver medallist in the recurve bow category at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games. MacDonald was the Alternate for the 2008 Olympic Archery Team and is also a veteran of international competition. Duenas, Lyon and MacDonald are entering this year’s World Championship on the heels of a 4th place finish at the World Cup of Archery held in Medellin, Colombia this July. Their 4th place finish was a best-ever World Cup result by a Canadian men’s recurve team. “These three athletes have a history of performing well as a team. Their strong 4th place finish in Medellin is a real confidence booster for them going into the World Championship”, said Joan McDonald.

 

On the women’s side, the Women’s Compound Bow Team will be led by Ashley Wallace

(Redcliff, AB). Wallace captured the silver medal in the 2010 Archery World Cup Final. She also

finished on the podium three other times during the 2010 World Cup circuit.  Wallace was a

member of Canada’s Archery Team that captured the silver medal in the Women’s Compound

Bow Team event at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games. She is re-gaining her form after

injuries sidelined her for much of the past two seasons. Joining Wallace will be fellow compound

bow archers, Fiona McClean (Windsor, ON) and Sonia Schina (Coquitlam, BC). This will be Schina’s third World Championship and McClean’s first time competing at the World Championship. The Women’s Compound Team is expected to show well against its competitors. 

 

Canada’s Women’s Recurve Bow team is comprised of a young crop of up-and-coming

athletes. Leading the Team is the Canadian Trials winner Georcy-Stéphanie Thiffeault Picard

(Montreal, QC).  Thiffeault Picard is a two-time member of Canada’s Youth Team that

competed at the World Youth Archery Championships. She will be joined by Vanessa Lee

(Toronto, ON) who competed in her first World Senior Championship in 2011. Rounding

out the Team is  Virginie Chénier (Laval, QC).  The 18 year old Chénier competed at the 2009

and 2011 World Youth Championship. She will compete at the Senior World Championship and

then compete later in October at the World Youth Championship in Wuxi, China.

 

Joan McDonald, 2012 Olympic Head Coach, reflected on the Trials stating that “the emergence of some new, highly skilled young archers on this year’s World Championship Team makes for an excellent mix of experience and youth.” She added “this shows that the pipeline is starting to fill making the future of the sport look bright.”

 

Listed below are the athletes and staff that will comprise the National Team for the 2013 World Archery Championship. The World Archery Championship takes place every two years. All athletes will compete in the individual and team events. A team is comprised of three archers.

7.         Archery Canada Announces Team for 2013 World Youth Archery Championship

 

Archery Canada is pleased to announce its National Youth Team that will represent Canada at the 2013 World Youth Archery Championship in Wuxi, China, October 13-20. The World Youth Championship is held every two years. At the 2011 Championship, Canada stood atop the podium in the Junior Male Compound Bow Team event. Both the Compound Bow and Recurve Bow categories are contested at the World Youth and Senior Archery Championships. Only the recurve bow category is contested at the Youth Olympics and Olympic Games.

 

Canada will have a combination of young veteran and first-time international athletes. To be eligible to compete in the Cadet age bracket, an athlete must be 17 years or younger on December 31st of the current year. For an athlete to compete as a Junior they must be 20 years or younger on December 31st of the current year.

 

The female veteran of this year’s Youth Team is recurve archer, Virginie Chénier of Laval, Quebec. Chénier, who turns 19 next month, competed at the 2009 and 2011 World Youth Championships. She has a busy and exciting time ahead of her as she will also compete at the World Senior Championship in Antalya, Turkey, September 29th - October 7th, just one week before the start of the Youth Championship.

 

Canada will field a full three-member team in the Junior Male Compound Bow. The Junior Team will be led by two-time World Youth Championship competitor Keenan Brown of Winnipeg. At the 2011 World Youth Championship, Brown and his two compound bow teammates struck gold in the Junior Men’s Compound Team event. Brown will be joined by fellow junior age athletes Christopher Golden (Tracy, NB) and Adam Pitney (Cranbrook, BC). Golden was a member of the 2011 National Youth Team and competed in the Cadet Age category.

 

In the Cadet Male Compound Bow category, Canada will also field a full team.  The all-rookie

team is comprised of: Hunter McGinnis (Winnipeg, MB), Logan Kupchanko (Regina, SK) and

Tyler Murphy (Fredericton, NB). Kupchanko’s older brother Michael was a member of the Junior

Men’s Compound Team that won the gold medal at the 2011 World Youth Championship.  

 

Canada will also field a full team in the Junior Male Recurve Bow category. The team is comprised of David van der Spek (Sidney, BC), Gabriel Vézina-Boucher (Lasalle, QC) and Eric Peters (Ottawa, ON). Vézina-Boucher was part of the Canadian contingent that competed at the 2011 World Youth Championship. Peters and van der Spek are new-comers to the international stage.

The following awards were presented at the 2013 Annual General Meeting held in Woodstock, New Brunswick on August 7th. The awards were awarded for outstanding achievement in 2012. Congratulations to all recipients!

 

D.M. Lovo Award for Outstanding Contribution to Archery in Canada: ALLAN WILLS

Allan (Al) Wills has been a long-serving and committed volunteer to the sport of archery in numerous capacities, both in Canada and internationally. His contribution is far-reaching and second to none.

 

Al epitomizes volunteerism. He consistently displays a keen and genuine passion and love for archery. As well, Al always carries out his volunteer roles and responsibilities with tireless enthusiasm. As a result, Al has quietly and deservedly earned the respect of athletes, coaches, officials, parents and volunteer/staff administrators from across Canada and from around the World.

 

Many view Al Wills as the face of archery in Canada. Under his strong leadership and direction, both Archery Canada and archery in Canada have and continue to grow and prosper. There is no doubt that the body of work that Al has undertaken and contributed, to Archery Canada and the Canadian archery community, is extraordinary. He is most deserving of this honour bestowed on him. 

 

Al’s contribution to archery and sport in Canada was recently recognized with the awarding of another prestigious award. After careful review, the Canadian Olympic Committee's Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Nomination Committee selected 41 individuals to be recognized for their exceptional work within the Canadian high-performance sport community. These individuals have made tremendous contributions to the Canadian Olympic Movement and the advancement of sport in Canada.  Al was one of the 41 recipients selected by the COC for this prestigious honour.   The official presentation ceremony took place May 12th in Vancouver, BC.

 

Allan was nominated by the Archery Canada High Performance Committee.

Marie-Pier of Lévis,Québec had a strong 2012 season. The highlight of her season was representing  Canada at the London 2012 Olympic Games, her third Olympic Games.

 

The road to Marie-Pier’s Olympic Team selection was both challenging and exciting. In late April 2012 Marie-Pier competed at the Continental Qualification Tournament (CQT) for the Americas held in Medellin, Colombia. Only three Olympic quota spots (one per country) were available in the individual event category at the CQT. Marie-Pier had an outstanding performance and won the gold and thereby secured an Olympic quota spot for Canada. She won the CQT with a world class score and new Canadian record of 1340 (a new Canadian record by 11 points).  On her way to winning the gold, Marie-Pier defeated the two Mexican athletes who would become the 2012 Olympic silver and bronze medallists.  

 

In July 2012 she competed in the Ogden World Cup finishing in 6th place out of a field of 162 competitors. The 6th place finish was the highest international placing in 20 years for a Canadian senior recurve woman.

 

In addition to the above performances Marie-Pier set two other Canadian records in 2012.  At the 2012 Arizona Cup she teamed-up with fellow Olympian Crispin Duenas to set a Canadian record in the Senior Recurve Mixed Team event.  In a FITA 1440 round shot in July 2012, Marie-Pier shot a score of 354 at 30 metres, enroute to another Canadian record.

 

Marie-Pier has been an internationally competitive archer since 2002 when at age 15, she set a new world record in the cadet women’s FITA round of 1320.  Marie-Pier has led the Canadian senior women’s rankings ever since.

 

Marie-Pier was nominated by the Archery Canada High Performance Committee.

 

 

Frank Jones Male Athlete of the Year Award Winner – NORBERT MURPHY

There-time Paralympian Norbert Murphy of (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC) made history in bringing home the bronze medal in the Compound Bow, Men’s ARW1 category at the 2012 London Paralympic Games. Norbert’s bronze medal performance marked the first time in history that a Canadian archer has won a Paralympic or Olympic medal. 

 

Norbert had to regroup after a tough semi-final match against his American rival Jeff Fabry. The American won the semi-final while Norbert moved on to the bronze medal round. In the bronze medal match, Murphy scored two points in the first, third and fourth set and tied the second set to take one point. Norbert went on to defeat Osmo Kinnunen of Finland 7-1 to lock-up the bronze.

 

Norbert achieved tremendous results in the 2012 season despite having to overcome serious health issues that arose last spring while preparing for the Paralympic Games. In early April, Norbert suffered a heart attack and consequently underwent emergency surgery. Remarkably he was able to resume training and competing within two weeks.  On May 1st 2012 he travelled to London and competed at the archery Test Event for the 2012 Paralympic Games. Shortly after his return from the Test Event, he contracted pneumonia and was placed under doctor orders not to train and compete for a couple of weeks. Not one to despair, Norbert kept his ever-present positive attitude and then resumed his preparation for the Paralympics following his recovery.

 

The Paralympic bronze medal was the crowning achievement for what was a challenging and outstanding 2012 season for Norbert. Norbert plans to continue training and competing through the 2016 Paralympic Games. As Norbert stated in a post-Games interview: "I went to London hoping for a podium finish. I was ready for it. I now want the gold in Rio.”

 

Norbert was nominated by the Archery Canada High Performance Committee.

 

 

Female Junior Athlete of the Year Award Winner – No 2013 recipient

 

 

Tom Mack Junior Male Athlete of the Year Award Winner – CHRISTOPHER PERKINS

Christopher (Chris) Perkins of Athens, Ontario followed-up his outstanding 2011 season by leading the Canadian Compound Men’s Team to the silver medal at the 2012 World Cup in Ogden, Utah.  Chris and his teammates Simon Rousseau and Andrew Fagan faced their arch rivals from the USA in yet another hard fought gold medal match. In 2011, Chris was crowned World Outdoor Champion.

 

In the men’s individual compound competition in Ogden, Chris reached the medal round where he competed against Pierre-Julien Deloche of France for the bronze medal. The archers had never competed against one another so there was no clear favourite going into the match. The match proved to be exciting with the lead changing hands several times. Deloche prevailed and captured the bronze. 

 

In addition to his success during the 2012 outdoor season, Chris was a member of the Canadian Senior Team that competed at the 2012 World Indoor Archery Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although not a medal winner, Chris performed well in a very deep field of high quality athletes. 

 

All the above outstanding 2012 senior results were achieved while still being a junior age athlete.

 

Chris was nominated by the Archery Canada High Performance Committee.

15.       Canadian Train to Shoot 900 Round

 

Rationale: At an Archery Canada Long Term athlete development (LTAD) planning meeting held in March, 2013, a gap in the tournament offerings for developing archers in the Train to Shoot stage of LTAD was discovered. The transition from indoor to outdoor competition requires many archers to go directly from 18M in an indoor round to 55M for a Canadian 900 round. While some archers may be prepared to make this large step, it is too big a challenge for others. Consequently, a new round was developed to enable new archers to experience outdoor tournament competition while still being able to achieve positive results.

 

The Canadian Train to Shoot (CT2S) 900 Round was designed to meet a number of requirements:

-        Provide a challenging and fun distance and target configuration

-        Generate a reasonable increase in quantity of arrows from indoor events

-        Be a logical progressive step towards a Canadian 900 or World Archery round

-        Be easily run alongside current tournaments on the same field

-        Include distances and sight marks relevant to other events

-        Create a fun and positive tournament experience

 

Using these criteria, the Canadian T2S 900 Round was developed to be a stepping stone event for archers shooting light bow weight or who are new to outdoor tournaments. 

 

Round Definition: The Canadian T2S 900 Round consists of 30 arrows shot at each of 35M, 30M and 25M at an 80 cm target face. The new round has been piloted at a small number of clubs and with much success. The Canadian T2S 900 Round is now ready for wider implementation across Canada. For more information, contact the Archery Canada national office.

16.       Partnership Agreement with PHE Canada & Call for a Technical Expert

 

Archery Canada has entered into a partnership agreement with PHE Canada on a school-based project entitled Physical & Health Education Canada: Learn, Think, Move Resource Series.  The partnership project and agreement will end June 30, 2014.

 

The resources are a series of pedagogically sound educational resources that integrate National Sport Organization’s and Multi-Sport Organization’s physical literacy concepts and fundamental sport skills into physical education. The overarching goal of these resources is to provide teachers with lesson plans that will help them teach their students the fundamental movement skills that will enable them to be active for life. This initiative also aims to raise awareness of and participation in various sports.

 

PHE Canada is creating a Sport Resource Series that will provide educators with quality physical education lessons.  Each resource in the series will be focused around a single sport and grade range providing a brief introduction to and various fundamental movement skills that are deemed foundational to the sport. PHE Canada and Archery Canada will work collaboratively to create a resource that will include curriculum links, assessment strategies, learning objectives, adaptations, and progressions. These components ensure the lessons create relevancy and value to educators, and the activities are interesting and challenging for all students.

 

PHE Canada will provide the following services in support of the partnership:

·       Management

·       Resource Writing

·       Curriculum Links

·       Pilot Testing

·       PHE Canada Endorsement

·       Promotion

 

Archery Canada will provide the following in-kind support to PHE Canada for the project:

·       Identify and contribute a technical expert from the sport to support PHE Canada’s expert writer(s) and Project Manager. Together, this “sub-committee” will identify the fundamental movement skills and the target grade that will be the focus of the resource.

·       Provide quotes or descriptions about archery for inclusion in the resource introduction.

·       Select one grade series for the resource to target specific teachers. The options include one of the following:

o   Junior/Senior Kindergarten to Grade 3

o   Grade 4 to Grade 6

o   Grade 7 to Grade 9

o   Grade 10 to Grade 12

·       Potentially, contribute a professional or Olympic/Paralympic athlete who is willing to “endorse” and be featured throughout the resource. The athlete would be the “face” in the resource to provide the teacher with skill development tips, strategies and possibly sport facts. (The use of an athlete in the resource is a concept idea at this time, but could be a tactic to create excitement for teachers and students.  Finalization of the inclusion of an athlete will be discussed by the sub-committee.)

·       Provide promotional support for the resource through their networks.

·       Assist PHE Canada with information or links to connect teachers to local “sport opportunities” for the children in classes that are using the resources.

·       Endorse the resource. Provide any approved logos or brands that can be added to the resource.

·       Review the resource and provide feedback on the content as it relates to sport specific skills.

 

Call for a Technical Expert

With the above in mind, Archery Canada is seeking an archery expert with a teaching background (physical education preferably) and experience in curriculum design and physical education/sport resource development. Archery Canada will provide a small honoraria to the Archery Technical Expert. The amount of the honoraria is to be determined. Any individual interested in taking on this project opportunity is asked to contact Scott Ogilvie, Executive Director for Archery Canada at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Please include a brief cover letter and a resumé outlining your relevant knowledge, skills and experience for this project. DEADLINE: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd.
