Currently coaching a high school NASP team and one of my archers has a aim point on the floor about 2 feet in front of the target. He is tall and maxes out the draw length of the bow. His form looks ok. Actually better than most. I cant seem to find the issue that is causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My suspicion is anchor. Is he anchoring low?

A combination of front and rear sight. If he maxes out his draw and most of the arrow gets used there is not much to be done with the front, except contrive a higher rest / launcher. Probably not the correct choice. That leaves rear sight ( anchor). Raise his anchor up, including use of three under hold.

If that is not enough, work on using a reference point on the bow riser as a guide. It's a start.

At least.....I think so.

There are 3 things to check:

1. be sure he has the knuckles at 45 degree angle as per the pic below

bow hand grip.jpg 
2. verify the nock high on the string 

3. verify his anchor

One of the new recurve shooters came yesterday to the indoor training and he had almost 5' gap at 20 yards with his #35@28" bow. He was gripping the bow like a stick - string slapping the elbow at each shot - the nock was 1/16 above the shelf and the anchor was very low. Solved these 3 and his "gap" was around 14" for target chest high at 20 yards.

Reading again, this is not making sense unless the target is a cube on the floor. Everything can be off, from body alignment to what I said above.
PS I have no idea why someone should even think about a gap before he is not capable to group arrows "instinctively". It doesn't need to be accurate aka sending them toward a specific point - but grouping arrows* on a target butt is a sign the form is the same from shot to shot.

* we shoot at the fletching of the first arrow anyway if there is no dot to hit.

You said you're coaching? What Draven said in his last post is spot on.
