2017 Gator Cup Camp

Archery Canada’s TOP program is beginning its 2017 schedule in Newberry, Florida next May 23 at the Easton Foundations Archery Center. Archers 13 to 23 years of age are invited to participate in a 7-day training and competition camp which will include participation in the 2017 Easton Foundation’s Gator Cup.

Registration fees will include six nights double accommodation at the Best Western Gateway Grand Hotel. Archers will also be transported from and to the airport as well as to and from the Easton Foundations Archery Center. Registration includes all fees for archery range usage. Finally, free breakfast will be available at the hotel everyday. Daily lunch and dinner will be at the expense of the archers.

According to USA Archery policies, archers must register by themselves to the 2017 Easton Foundations Gator Cup.

Although Archery Canada will offer chaperones on specific flights, archers will be responsible for booking their own flight and will assume the full cost of their flight. Archery Canada will pick up archers at specific times at the designated arrival airport. Information concerning flights will be transmitted upon registration for the camp.

The camp will be led by Dick Tone, Olympic Gold Medal Winning Coach, and technical consultant to Archery Canada’s high performance program. Archery Canada will complete the coaching staff according to a 5 to 1 ratio (one coach for five archers).
