Default Archery Test :-)

Hey y'all! Im taking my archery test at Quinton Sportsmen Club in nj. My grouping is good, but I get nervous whenever I take a test. How can I reduce my nerves? Is there anything I should expect at the test? Ive been practicing both 15 and 20 yards. I really want to pass because this is something Id love to do. Any advice is awesome! Thanks!

Breathe in during the draw, hold it to settle the pin, let about half of it out, stay steady on the target, release. Rinse and repeat It's all in your head. If you have practiced diligently then it will show at the test. Archery is more muscle memory than anything. If you practiced correctly then you will be fine.

Follow thru! Keep the pin on the target until you hear the impact. Don't watch the arrow fly. Just keep that site pin on the target after release until you hear impact.
