Lodging

Athletes are responsible for finding their own lodging.  Sattva Center for Archery Training is about 2 miles from Smith College.  Smith College has an extensive listing of over 30 local accommodations: https://www.smith.edu/about-smith/visiting-smith/local-accommodations.  Northampton and Florence also have an impressive showing on Air BNB as well.  

Meals

Athletes must fuel and refuel consistently to maintain high levels of performance.  While you are welcome to visit any of the numerous restaurants in Florence (1 mile) and downtown Northampton (2 miles) you also have the option of having Sattva deliver your breakfast and lunch to you at Look Park.  Sattva will contact you in advance of the program for menu options, including specifying dietary restrictions. Meals must be pre-ordered. $20 per meal includes a main dish, fruit or chips, and drink.

Meal pre-ordering has closed. All archers/parents who pre-ordered meals will receive a menu via email before Saturday.

    welcome to sit at.

HOMEWORK (Due @ Saturday morning meeting, 8:00 AM)

  • You have two assignments, and we recommend you begin thinking about these assignments
    now and continue to contemplate while you travel to Sattva. Materials needed: two index
    cards, one pen, time to reflect.
  • You will hand these cards to your coaches during the Saturday morning meeting. We will revisit
    these during the final debrief on Sunday. It is up to you to follow through with your “I will . . .”
    statements, identified below.

    • 1st Assignment: Team Culture. Legibly write your answers to the following on an index card:
      • First side of index card: What type of Team Culture do you want to be part of?
      •  Second side of index card: Identify three actions you can commit to following though on
        during RED Camp Sattva that will help establish the type of team culture you want to be
        part of. Write them as “I will…” statements.
    • 2nd Assignment: Leadership. Legibly write your answers to the following on a separate index
      card:

      • First side of index card: Leadership does not have to solely come from coaches. Identify
        three times where you or someone in your group/team/class demonstrated leadership
        in ways that helped the group as a whole or individuals within the group. Write these
        examples down.
      • Second side of index card: Identify three ways you will demonstrate leadership while at
        RED Sattva. Write these as “I will . . ..” statements.

WEATHER

  • Your Camp is scheduled to be outdoors. You will be outdoors from 8:00 in the morning until
    5:00 in the late afternoon. There will be a tent with tables and chairs to get out of the sun.
    Please bring your preferred accoutrements for managing sun and heat. An umbrella, brimmed
    hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, plenty of cold drinks and food, etc.
  • If it does rain, no problem! We will stay at the outdoor range and practice in any amount of rain
    that is forecast to be around .01” per hour. Bring a raincoat and wax your string! However, we
    can easily move to the indoor range at Sattva conveniently located about 1 mile away from our
    outdoor range. Sattva’s indoor range has twelve shooting lanes, retail space, a strength and
    conditioning area, and up to 30 meters of shooting distance. For the indoor location address,
    see the Location section above.
  • Coaches will not drive athletes from the outdoor range to the indoor range in the event of a
    sudden change of location due to heavier and sustained rain. Anyone accompanying an athlete
    should be prepared to drive the athlete in the event we change locations.

COVID

Outdoors

  • Sattva Coaches wear masks when coaching within 6 feet of an archer outdoors. You are
    welcome to keep your mask off whenever outside and socially distanced. Of course, if
    you want to wear a mask at all times, regardless of your vaccination status, you are
    welcome to do so.
  • Hand sanitizer provided if you run out.
  • All Sattva Coaches and Staff are vaccinated.

Indoors

  • Sattva Coaches wear masks when coaching indoors unless it is lecture style with our filtration system running and everyone else is stationary, wearing masks.
  • Due to Delta, athletes are asked to wear masks when not shooting. Vaccinated athletes can remove masks when shooting. Athletes who choose not to be or cannot be vaccinated must keep their masks on all the time.
  • Sattva has two industrial size air filters purchased because of COVID that accommodate our 4,500 sq ft indoor facility. We also have windows and a large door that can open to the outdoors.
  • Hand sanitizer provided if you run out.
  • We do request that, when possible, we minimize the number of people in the indoor location by having parents and those accompanying athletes remain outside (or shopping in Northampton).
