Whilst no one coaching resource is affiliated with the HAA, there are a number of resources within the county available to coaches. Your County Coaching Organiser (CCO) and first point of contact is Mr. David Osmond and you can contact him here.
For 2024 we have a series of sessions and masterclasses for both archers and coaches, ranging from bow style masterclasses, an introduction to bow tuning, as well as introduction to clout and field shooting. Where appropriate, coach-orientated sessions such as coaching the visually impaired, or coaching those with autism and SEND, will contribute to CPD.
Considering becoming a coach?
If you're considering embarking upon a coaching course, the CCO will be able to let you know which courses are being run in Hertfordshire.
For those archers who may benefit from funding for such courses, please contact the Secretary for further information.
