IMPROVER Courses Available :
Members who would like to attend an improvers session please can you liaise with
CCO@glamorganarchery.wales if you, or any of your clubs are interested
in an Improver Session.
Glamorgan is looking at setting up some sessions, once a
venue has been sourced I'll have dates for about half a dozen or so
sessions, the cost will be driven by the cost of the venue and any
target faces we use during the sessions.
If any clubs would like to host these sessions could they also please
let me know and include a cost per hour for bosses etc.
These sessions are open to all archers regardless of ability or bow
type, but would prefer that they have been shooting on a regular basis
and have there own equipment.
I currently have a County Coach willing to coach and a couple of Level 2
coaches, any other coaches who would like to help out are more than
welcome, again could they please let me know if they are interested.
ARCHERY GB Coaching Plan for Archery (2017-
Great coaches are essential pillars of support that enable people to fully experience
enjoyment, progression and achievement in archery. That's why we are committed to
investing in coaching. The aim of the Coaching Plan for Archery (2017-
It is our intention that by 2021 we will have strengthened the coaching system so that it develops people who are skilled at providing motivational coaching experiences, using a British framework. More people, particularly in their first two years in the sport, will have regular access to good quality coaching. The value of coaching and what it takes for it to thrive will be understood in more places. Data and insight will also be more effectively used to demonstrate the impact of coaching and inform our decision making.
