2024 SNAC Indoor AWARDS Celebration coming soon

Keep watching our SNAS website news and event pages, Facebook page and Google business link for the date to celebrate!

We have lots of achievements to appreciate.

This year marks the post-COVID-19 return of house league medals.  As well, we have national and provincial champions, and mail match winners to recognise.  And, we need to celebrate SNAC national and provincial record-setters, too.

For anyone who participated in our indoor tournaments, mail matches or leagues at SNAC from December to April, invite family and friends as well to enjoy cake, presentations and and photo ops.  Don’t miss it!  Stay tuned.

Shane Bryson top in 2024 SNAS Nutrition Challenge

Congratulations to Shane Bryson, who topped all other students both adults and youth with an almost perfect score during our annual Nutrition Week Challenge.

All students in the advanced classes keep track of their food intake for one week in accordance with the Canada Food Guide, plus earn bonus points for reducing empty calories, fried food and caffeine.

Many of our students either improved or stayed the same score as in 2023 – very few did worse.

So, congratulations to all our students during National Nutrition Month and the annual SNAS Nutrition Challenge!

2024 Ontario Winter Games – an archery first

South Nation Archery was represented well at the first indoor version of Ontario Games in Thunder Bay February 22-28, 2024.  Usually, archery has been in the summer games, but was switched into the winter for these games.

Serenity Last won her age category for both the 600 round and elimination day.  Congratulations, Serenity and keep up the good work!  Kathleen Millar was Eastern Zone Coach along with Garnett Last as Eastern Zone Manager.  Eastern Zone archers medalled in each division athletes were registered in.

Thank you to Archery Ontario for funding our training camp in January, and to Jess Watson in particular for all her work.

Kathleen Millar Eastern Zone Coach for Ontario Winter Games

Kathleen Millar, team coach, along with manager Garnett Last, will be supporting the Eastern Zone archery team to the 2024 Ontario Winter Games, February 22-26th, 2024.  The Games are taking place in Thunder Bay, ON.

This is the first time that archery has been assigned to the Winter Games, and therefore, archers will be shooting indoors at 18m. The team age categories, U21 and younger, include recurve and compound archers from across the zone.

Archers are looking forward to all the aspects of competition and Games.  There is a wide cross-section of archer experience and age on this team for males and females, from first-time major games participation to Pan Am youth championships.

While the Games are running, Kathleen Millar will not be available for private coaching from February 21 to 28, 2024.  In the meantime, for further information on private lessons, please contact South Nation Archery at 613-989-2943 and speak with Larry.

2023 Nutrition Challenge Well Done

Our SNAC advanced classes took on the annual March Nutrition Month Challenge to chart healthy eating for 1 week.  99% of our students participated – well done!

Rian Chicoine remains our nutrition champion for another year, with Pam Leclair only 10 points behind him.  Congratulations, Rian and all our participants.

Remember that a balanced diet with good hydration and fewer “hollow calories” can help archery performance as well as overall health.  Combined with good sleeping habits, you can feel better and have more energy.  Take the nutrition challenge on your own – Kathleen Millar can send you a score sheet upon request.

Compound archers

Emma McMillan, Hannah Rousseau, Bill Mackey and Hester Grodde.

Recurve archers

Pam Leclair, Bob Kerr and Luke Seldenthuis

Congratulations to all students!
