With the release of the revamped Session and Development Coaching Courses, HAA Coaching Group started running both of these courses in June following the older format of face-to-face instruction as well as incorporating the new online courses created by Archery GB.

Both of these courses are being run at Southampton Archery Club which boasts fantastic facilities for training and shooting and the last session coach day at the end of July saw 16 new raw recruits from clubs all over Hampshire being put through their paces in preparation for their assessment in September.

One of the aims of HAA is to promote coaching in Hampshire; the more coaches we have available means that more Beginners' Courses can be run and therefore increases membership for all clubs which can only be a good thing. If you are interested in becoming a coach, have a look at the information on Archery GB Coaching Page and then contact Hampshire's CCO here or your club Secretary/Chair.
