Archery Canada’s recurve high performance program most recently established its long-term strategy with a balanced approach between the immediate term and achieving a best-ever finish at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, and the longer-term, which targets a podium finish at the 2024 Olympics. A significant component of this strategy is the implementation of an increasingly centralized and monitored training environment for those athletes who are selected to the National Training Squad (NTS), and who are identified as being able to support the program’s performance ambitions.
