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.
World Archery’s development department works with the organisation’s member associations to grow archery in nations around the world. The department offers advice and consultancy on strategic planning in areas of performance and grassroots development, assists in applications for Olympic Solidarity funding and coordinates programmes for coach and coach trainer education.
World Archery is committed to fighting doping within the sport of archery. Cheating of any kind of not tolerated. Although the sport historically does not have a problem with doping, initiatives are taken to protect the integrity of clean athletes in archery through education and awareness.
