    Arrows hitting left!

    Hi Guys,
    I'm in need of help, I have been coaching a young lady now for 2yrs, in this period I have upgraded her equipment to bring her into her correct age group! the problem I am experiencing is that no matter what spine arrow we use, the arrows always hit left of the target at 18meters, plus minus 12inches from center, and in order for her to get the arrows into the gold, she needs to aim off to the right the same distance! gap gets bigger the further she goes back, she is 13yrs and is shooting in the U15 Girls recurve, her draw weight is 26# at her drawlength of 25.5" tested with a bowpoundage tester, arrow spine for that is 800sp carbon 6mm shafts.
    I have paper tuned and at 2M+2M arrows make a perfect entry through the paper, I have done all the checks to make sure the riser is not twisted, limbs are not twisted, alignment is spot on! I'll try and upload photos but I'm not sure if Photobucket still works, I've not used it for a number of years,

    all help will be appreciated,
    Bern47

    I'd double check her eye dominance. We have had a few beginners who were left eye dominant but wanted to shoot right handed and whenever they forgot to close their left eye their arrows strayed to the left of the target.

    Eye dominance has been suggested as worth checking and it's 2 of us for that one.
    I also suggest standing directly behind the archer so she is between you and the target. From that position move your position a little till you can view her bow and see the string down the centre of the limbs when she has it at full draw. When that can be seen, you are directly behind her bow when it is at full draw. You can then look to see which way the bow is facing. If the bow looks as if it is lined up to the left of the gold, and the arrows seem to be flying the way the bow is facing, it could be she has the string blur too far over to her right. From her point of view the string blur might be over to the right of the riser at the sight window.
