I am a Level 2 Coach now based at Cleve Archers near Bristol, I have been shooting for over 7 years and coaching for over 5.
After running a huge number of beginners’ courses to help bring new members into various clubs I began to grow concerned about the lack of support we offered afterwards. A little helpful prompt is great as you transition into club life and some archers are quite happy to stop there.
But what about those who want to go further?
Most clubs and most coaches aren’t set up to give archers more than a little bit of coaching on a club night until they reach the level where they are going to training for County or National squads.
I set up Dolphin Archery to try and cover this gap where lots of archers get stuck despite their best efforts.
This is going to be a huge learning curve for me as a coach but an exciting time where I look forward to working in a performance environment with committed archers who want to put in the time and effort required to achieve their goals.
