Level 2 development opportunity

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).

Outline details

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.
