They say that behind every good athlete there is a good coach.

Coaching is integral to every athlete’s performance, from beginner to elite level – and archery is no different. Since archery requires technical, physical and mental skills, coaches come from a wide variety of backgrounds and specialise in many different aspects of the sport.

World Archery offers a coaching accreditation system and trains coach trainers around the world.

Many national federations also manage their own coach accreditation systems offering information on standardised archery coaching techniques.

World Archery Coaching Certification

Member associations implement coaching certification programmes nationally, based on their respective needs and situations.

World Archery does run instructor training and coach trainer courses, and provide coach certification frameworks, particularly for member associations with no established coach accreditation programme.
