Stephanie Barrett

Short Biography:

I have many fond memories of the friends my parents made through sport and the satisfaction that can be earned when hard work pays off. I was heavily influenced by the dedication they had to training and understood the amount of work involved to be successful in sport. I’ve competed in many sports but my favourites were soccer, volleyball, bowling, and track. The high performance athletics club I was part of helped to develop not only my love of sport, but also laid the foundations for good mental discipline and visualization techniques.

After taking some beginner classes at OCCS (2016), it was clear that archery and I would become inseparable; a week hasn’t gone by that I haven’t been training or competing. The last couple years have been intense and sometimes stressful, but I’m looking to the future while building on past experiences. I can’t wait to meet new friends, learn new lessons, and continue to take the steps to make my dream of becoming an Olympic Champion a reality.
