The Berkshire Archery Coaching Group (BACG) are considering organising a County Coaching Course. The BACG would like to establish which Level 2 coaches in Berkshire and SCAS might be interested. If there is sufficient support a course will be run starting in the October 2019 (provisional date).
The training is for existing Level 2 coaches who want to increase their coaching knowledge and aimed at coaches currently working with, or aspiring to work with, talented archers in a performance environment.
The course is tutored and assessed by Senior Coaches and is run over a 12-month period with 8 days of training in various subjects. Assessment will be one day.
The County Coach modules you will be trained in and then assessed at the end of the course are:
Module 1: Work record, suitability and commitment.
Module 2: Written communication (internally structured assessment by the Tutor).
Module 3: Verbal communication.
Module 4: Performance Coaching.
Module 5. Analysis, tuning and knowledge of archery equipment.
Module 6. Fundamental coach training and assessment.
You will be required to coach an archer, preferably two for a minimum period of four months utilising the skills taught on the course.
Each candidate will require a mentor preferably a Senior Coach who will support and help you through the course, the mentor will be required to be in attendance for a minimum of eight hours during the coaching of your archer(s).
All candidates will attend a pre-course interview to establish the level of their coaching knowledge.
