Coaching is an integral part of every archer learning the craft of Archery.
Commencing your initial archery education with a qualified Coach is a vital and crucially important first step in the whole process.
Every archer – from beginners right through to Olympic and World Champions – rely on coaches to help them develop, achieve, and then later to maintain and hone their skills.
There are 4 levels of coaches in Archery:
1. Level 1 Participation Coach. These coaches specialise in introducing new archers to clubs via the conduct of come ‘n’ try activities. The Level 1 Participation Coach is arguably the most important as they are often the first face of archery and the one who introduces a new player to the sport.
2. Level 2 Development Coach. Deliver programs such as OzBow and Beginner Courses. They also develop club archers wanting to improve their performances and participate in club and interclub activities.
3. Level 3 Pathways Coach. Develops archers who want to go further into State programs, teams and squads as well as those seeking to move into High Performance Programs.
4. Level 4 High Performance Coach. Develops archers for National and International level competitions.
Below is the current Victorian Accredited Coaches list. All Coaches named are fully accredited with Archery Australia, and have valid Working with Children Checks. Coaches will transfer to the new coaching system and naming as they are reaccredited.
This list is current as at the 30th of April 2020.
