Coaches' Committee

The Coaches' Committee mission is to represent coaches and coaching interests within the membership of World Archery and help to develop Archery in close collaboration with the other World Archery Committees, following and supporting World Archery goals.
We are working and focusing on the following goals:

  • COACHING INTEREST: increase the number of Archery Coaches worldwide.
  • COACHING QUALITY: increase the ability and technical level of the Archery Coaches.
  • MATERIAL FOR COACHES EDUCATION: prepare and edit any document that will support and work as a tool for the use of Archery Development worldwide.
  • COACHES MANUALS: develop, coordinate, prepare, edit and publish Coaches Manuals in both World Archery official languages.
Note: The Coaches Manual Entry Level is already available, and very soon the second edition will be published. We are also working on publishing it in French, and that will be ready soon. The Second Level Coaches Manual is being prepared.

  • COACHES’ SEMINARS & CLINICS: organize and hold "Coaching Course Conductors’ Clinic", Coaches top level seminars with updated information for Coaches worldwide.
  • CODE OF ETHICS: publish a "Code of Ethics for Coaches" in English and French which will be available on the World Archery Web very soon.
  • REPRESENT COACHES INTERESTS: represent Coaches and their interests within the World Archery structure, World Archery Council and World Archery Congress. Give the Coaches point of view and an influence in World Archery rules.
  • PROFESSIONALISATION: contribute to increasing the number of professional Archery Coaches and get a recognised certification.
  • EXPERT SELECTION: develop and maintain a database of coaches who have the ability and willingness to contribute to the Olympic Solidarity (OS) and DTAC missions. Improve the Experts’ appointment and selection process for each OS and DTAC mission, making it transparent and fair.
  • ARCHERY CENTERS: identify the archery centers that will accept any potential user.

The Coaches Committee is are willing to help Archery development worldwide, as coaches are one of the most important parts of this process.

Our Vision

This vision has been set at the Coaches Committee meeting in Saquarema (BRA) on 1 December 2013.

The committee sees the future of archery coaches as follows:

  • Several Coaching Education opportunities (initial or continued) offered from
    • The WA centre in Lausanne (from 2015)
    • Several WA accredited partner centres in different locations over the world
  • In these centres, resident archers will be needed as teaching support
  • An increase of the use of modern technologies, particularly for analyses
  • The professionalisation of the archery coach will keep going
  • Use of E-learning for:
    • Pre-training
    • Follow-up of the initial education
    • Continuing education
  • The use of classical coaching course will remain
  • A WA E-Coaching assistance
