Coaching weekend

Busy time last weekend, but no shooting. I was corunning a two day course for prospective coaches in the society.

Two days from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. of coach training, covering everything from conducting risk assessments, venue consideration, developing observation skills and their practical assessments.

My thanks to fellow trainers Steve and Bernie, along with support from John.

Good luck to our students as they now have the written assessment to complete.

Whats your top 3

I’m calling all the archery coaches and instructors out there for your input please.

If you coach complete beginners or nationals champions, traditional archer or Olympic recurve. I’m trying to compile some coaching materials on two main topics, one being the most common faults you encounter and the other being areas of improvement you target with your students.

So can I ask you, what you think are the 3 top or most common faults that you encounter when coaching archers?

Maybe you think its’ stance, or release? What about consistency in anchor?

Secondly what are the top 3 things that you think make the greatest impact on improving someone you are coaching?

Likewise this might be associated with shot sequence or simply slowing down? What about equipment and tuning?

The list is endless and I’m looking forward to hearing your input

Thanks for reading.
