RENO, Nev. (September 20, 2016) – With Rio still fresh on everyone’s mind Holland Linterman (13, Reno) has just taken the next step to hopefully one day compete with the world’s best. Holland has been accepted to train as part of the USA Archery Regional Junior Dream Team at the Easton Archery Excellence Center in Van Nuys California.
The Regional Dream Teams were developed to help young archers to focus on technical and mental skill development, with the ultimate goal of developing future international success at the World Championship, World Cup, and Olympic levels. There are two teams: RDT-East and RDT-West, limited to the top 30 dedicated and promising archers from each region of the country. This self-funded program is for recurve archers looking to improve their skills and gain access to the best-quality training in some of the most excellent archery training facilities in the world with a dedicated set of USA Archery certified coaches.
Holland takes her archery very seriously she is a part of the Junior Olympic Archery Development program at Wasting Arrows, 4855 Joule St Suite B7 Reno NV. She hones her skills with coaching and constant practice. She also is part of Wasting Arrows’ Traveling Team and has competed in National and State competitions. She recently took 2nd place in the USA Archery Virtual Tournament, an online tournament where archers shoot locally but compete nationally. Wasting Arrow Head Coach Lystra Pitts says “We are so very excited for Holland to have earned this prestigious opportunity. We cannot wait to see what she does with it, she is a tremendously talented archer. The competition for the spots on the Regional Dream Team is fierce and to have a kid from Reno get selected is something really special.”
