Becoming a Coach

Coaching is an integral part of every archer learning the craft of Archery, and it is therefore vital that Coaches and coaching standards are attained and maintained at the highest level possible.

In Victoria, the AV Coaching Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of Coaches for the State, and organises all Coaching related administration on a needs basis.

Currently, the AV Coaching Coordinator is Irene Norman, and inquiries relating to Coaching can be made directly via phone or email (see Contact Us tab).

There are three coaching levels available to members.
