Coaches help archers to enjoy the sport, they run our Try Archery, Experience Archery, Intro Archery and Boost Archery sessions as well as supporting club members. If you want to find out more about becoming a coach then please get in touch or talk to one of our friendly coaches.
Coaching volunteers help the club on an occasional basis to run large Try Archery events in the community or at Cleve Archers.
Assistant coaches make a regular commitment to help coach sessions, they will work with qualified coaches to deliver Experience Archery sessions and regular club coaching.
If they regularly help with junior sessions, they will be asked to undergo a DBS check (if over 18) and to attend a Child Protection Course.
Assistant coaches will always have a qualified coach (who is not coaching) available to assist them.
This is an excellent way to see whether you enjoy coaching.
Assistant coaches who want to progress are encouraged to undergo the Archery GB Session Coach course (once they are over 15). All Session Coaches will need to undergo a DBS check as well as complete a Child Protection course and First Aid course.
All Session Coaches will be assigned a mentor who is either a more experienced Session Coach or a Development Coach.
Session Coaches who wish to lead Boost Archery courses and Club Coaching sessions or who wish to improve their coaching skills to help with Team Cleve are encouraged to complete the Archery GB Development Coach course.
Development Coaches who wish to undergo further formal training will be supported to achieve their County and Senior Coach certificates.
