Five Arrows

I know how the story goes...
A whistle, then....”Bows on toes!”
Five arrows is all I get
My parents’ favour, a never-ending debt

My first arrow flies sweet
The elusive 10 my eyes does greet
My heart is filled with glee
My prize will surely be my daddy’s knee

The second arrow now....a 9
Desperate emotions are mine
My mother’s face without a smile
From here I wish I was a mile

Arrow three, it’s a 7
Please, oh Angels from Heaven
Save this tortured child today
Anguished, at my parents’ feet I lay

Arrow 4...
My heart is now at death’s door
My terror I simply cannot hide
Alas, this burden I must abide

My last hope...arrow number 5
My medal dream no longer alive
Mom and Dad, I need to rest
Please know, I’ve done my level best

Well done archers. Remember that everyone who competed is a winner.

You all made AGA in southern Africa and NASP in Canada proud.

The rookie to watch is young Hennie Victor, a Grade 3 learner from the Northern Cape who shot a 268 and are placed 58th in the Tournament. Can someone please post a photo of Hennie.

Thank you Hal Ziprick who initiated and managed this competition. Well done Hal.

Thank you to all the officials, coaches, parents and most of all our archers who worked very hard to make this happen.

I salute you.

I believe that we need at least two or maybe three such events per year. Who's next?

Coaches can reduce the chances of their team suffering from excessive anxiety by implementing several relatively simple strategies:

Realize the Needs of Individual Team Members
Observe Team Members

You may notice that archers have their own unique way to prepare for a match.

Archers needs to be psyched up enough to be ready to shoot, but not so aroused that performance suffers.

Some archers will need to relax and calm down before competition, while others may need to be more energized or psyched up for competition.

Coach Actions

Be careful when giving pre-game talks. A rousing pep talk may help some archers, yet also make other archers too anxious.

Limit the pre-game talk to essential information needed for team and individual strategies

Save the pep talk for individual athletes who need to be psyched up

Provide some time for archers to prepare on their own

Build some time into your pre-competition warm-ups for archers to do some individualized mental readying

Some archers will want to relax, calm down, or be by themselves. Other archers may stay close to teammates, get psyched up, or perhaps joke around as a distraction from thinking too much about the game.

It is important to learn how your athletes like to prepare for competition. Then individualize how you interact with athletes before matches.

Build the confidence and try to calm archers who need to relax.

Use motivational remarks for archers who like to get excited before they compete.

Your comments and opinions are very welcome on this subject.

Have you suffered and how did you control your anxiety ?

11 Grade 3, 1 Grade 4 and 2 parents were introduced to AGA.

This programme is very popular and one adult BAI per two learners volunteered to help.

Well done AGA-EK, you make us proud.


Constant and consistent progress is key.

Take and make those small steps every day and don't constantly look for the big breakthrough or huge leap. That will happen when the time is right and when you have put in enough progress consistently over time.

Success is just made up of tiny small actions and steps every day.

Despite what many think, overnight successes never happen, and when it seems like they do, it's just because there have been small wins happening over a period of time. People who are successful and dominant understand this to the fullest extent.

Mind over matter. I've heard it time and time again, but I never really stop to think about what this saying means exactly.

I always thought of it as just another cliche that is supposed to try to motivate me to keep going, or to get through another set or rep when I was working out. I thought of it as something that was really irrelevant, but encouraged me to ignore the pain and focus on getting the task at hand done.

What I began to realize is that the saying actually has a ton of truth behind it. I didn't realize how powerful and important your mind is in everything that you do. I started to believe that this saying was more than just another cliche. Even world-renowned rapper Drake has said in one of his most popular songs, "See, the power of the mind is not a joke!" This was everything I needed to hear in order to believe that any type of success starts with what you believe in your mind.

Mind Over Matter: Used to describe a situation in which someone is able to control a physical condition, problem, etc., by using the mind.

Success can come in different forms, but it all starts with what you think, what you say to yourself and believe that you're capable of doing. Most people who reach a high level of success don't want to just be successful, they want to crush their goals. To them, it's not just about winning, but more about how they win. It's about not relinquishing and giving their all every single time because they know what they're capable of.

They're serious about their craft, and when it comes to getting things done, they leave no doubt that they are the best and most skilled. The most successful people in any industry, craft or sport, don't just want to win, they want to dominate. They want to prove that they are the best and that there shouldn't be any debate about it. The most successful people have this mindset and want everybody to know that they are confident in their abilities.

How To Build A Successful Mindset

1. Value Growth Over Comfort

Growth is uncomfortable, progress can also be uncomfortable, but you absolutely cannot get better without experiencing some sort of discomfort. You have to realize that in order to build a successful mindset, growth has to be a priority and you can't afford to stay in a state of comfort. Learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable. It is the same way in any aspect of life. Growth doesn't happen overnight, but placing that above complacency will eventually lead you to be dominant and successful.

2. Value Progress Over Breakthrough

Constant and consistent progress is key. Take and make those small steps every day and don't constantly look for the big breakthrough or huge leap. That will happen when the time is right and when you have put in enough progress consistently over time. Success is just made up of tiny small actions and steps every day. Despite what many think, overnight successes never happen, and when it seems like they do, it's just because there have been small wins happening over a period of time. People who are successful and dominant understand this to the fullest extent.

Success is just made up of tiny small actions and steps every day.

3. Value Stamina Over Speed

"Slow and steady wins the race." Life, just like success, is not a sprint. You want to last in this archery game and going fast won't help you sustain long-term success. Life is longer than you think and you have to have the stamina to be in this race for the long run. Don't rush the process. Don't rush to success. Value the grind, the journey, and take each day as a different learning experience.

4. Value Purpose Over Passion

Your purpose might not be your passion, but you can learn to become passionate about your purpose. Your purpose is why you're put here and what you think your mission is in your life. Finding this might be difficult, but once you do, do everything you can to go full force on it. Your purpose will always drive you and never steer you wrong. You also might feel like you have multiple purposes, and although you probably do, acting on just one of them will push you to be successful. Think about what you want your legacy to be. What are the stories that people are going to tell when you’re gone? Questions like these will help you discover your purpose and will give you lifelong meaning.

"What are the stories that people are going to tell when you’re gone?"

5. Value Clarity Over Certainty

Clarity is power, but clarity doesn't come from thinking and wondering. Clarity comes from action and moving forward. You'll never be 100% sure that something will work out the way you want it to. Life dishes out uncertainties and obstacles on everyone's journey. The one thing you can always be certain about is what you want, how you plan to get it and what you're willing to do to get it. That's where clarity comes from and successful people realize that regardless of what happens on the journey, they're focused on the destination. They aren't concerning themselves with whether or not it will work the way they want it to work. They just put their heads down and go get

The fact of the matter is that everyone wants to get to the next level. Everyone wants to improve and figure out ways to better their shooting.

Success and satisfaction can never be tied to a general number or outcome. Being successful and satisfied with all of these things starts with ourselves, what our minds deem possible and what we picture success as.

When we're younger, we were told that "if you can believe, then you can achieve." We often lose sight of the truth in this as we get older and when so-called reality hits us. We forget how important it is to dream, to have high goals and to believe in ourselves.

Success will always start with your mindset before anything else.

You create the standard for success and set the bar for what you want in life, but you should never sell yourself short. Your mind is literally the most powerful thing that you have and if you can picture yourself in a certain position, then it starts to become a reality in that moment.

Analyze what success means to you, and how you're going to get it. Don't ever stop until you get what you want out of archery or life!
