Coaching in Schools

Archery GB recommends that archery in schools is delivered by either an Archery GB licenced Instructor, Teacher or Level 1 Coach as a minimum.

Coaching in a school setting is unique and requires a special set of skills and knowledge base.  Support is also available to help schools provide organised coaching.


This guidance is for anybody considering taking on a mentoring role in archery.
