Coach Levels:

The Foundation Coach certificate is for those offering instruction to people with little or no archery experience. If you run have-a-go events, school camps, one-off archery experiences or assist at club beginner courses this is the certificate level for you. You do not need to be a member of Archery NZ. Courses can be adapted to suit the needs of your organisation. eg. range set up, range safety, para-archery. You must be a minimum of 16 years of age.

The is for those coaches working at club level from beginner archers through to intermediate level up to National tournaments, focusing on the development of the archer to improve and progress through the sport.

What makes a great coach?

There are a lot of opinions about what makes a great coach, from “ones who’s archers win all the time” to “ones who are nice people”. But what do the athletes think? We asked some archers what they thought made a great coach.

ANZ National Coaching Programme Document

The Coaching Commission has been working to document the way that the Commission is set up and operated.  The Nationals Coaching Programme document is a summary of this.  Some areas are still work in progress, and the document is intended to be updated as further work is carried out.

This is a resource for both existing and prospective coaches, and indicates details of commission structure, goals, accreditation, coach development and re-accreditation.

If there are any questions, please contact your district coaching representative
