Aim of the Coach Training Course

The aim of the Coach training course is to take a NFAS member with at least three years experience, or previous archery coaching experience through the scenario of selecting a theoretical venue suitable for coaching beginners, to risk assess it, equipping it and run a beginners course with all the necessary requirements in place, making sure the course is safe and to the NFAS standard.

The course is run over a weekend and as well as the practical element, will include all the information required to complete a written assignment once the attendee returns home from the course. Although completed in the attendees own home, the assignment is an integral part of the course and must be completed to qualify as an NFAS Coach. The assignment is not a spelling or grammar test and will only be marked on the content.

The completed assignment is a blueprint for a beginner’s course and may be used as a working document for planning and running courses at a club, once the attendee has successfully completes the Coach Training Course.

The course contains both practical and classroom based subjects and the accompanying course notes will provide candidates with all materials / references that they will need to complete the course.

The coach trainers will be on hand to provide guidance and help to attendees throughout the weekend and also during the period when attendees are completing their assignments.

We have candidates from varied backgrounds and academic qualifications However, many candidates will have done very little formal learning since they left full time education and at first glance, the course may seem a little daunting. We would like to assure you that this is not an academic test but an assessment of candidate’s ability to coach beginners to become safe and competent members of our society. Our current course pass rate is about 98%.

PLEASE NOTE: DBS (CRB) CHECKS WILL BE INITIATED BY THE COACH TRAINING CO-ORDINATOR. THIS PROCESS CAN TAKE SOME TIME, UP TO SIX WEEKS SO IT IS ADVISED THAT RENEWALS ARE SENT IN EARLY.
