Level 1

If you are a club archer or active volunteer who is enthusiastic about introducing new people to the sport and helping them to improve, then the Level 1 Award in Coaching Archery will give you all the skills, experience and resources that you need.

Information about the course

The course has been designed for archers wanting to deliver single archery sessions or a course for beginners.

  • The full course is 4 days in duration, including the assessment delivered over a period of 12 weeks.
  • Learners also need to take part in 12 hours of 'supported practice' between day 2 and day 4 of the course. (This is where you practice coaching in your own time, for example at your local club).

To attend the course you need to be:

  • A minimum of 15 years old by the first day of the course.
  • When coaching, learners under the age of 18 should be supervised by a legally responsible supervisor.

Please read the guidance provided below about the course. This provides full details about the terms of enrolment onto the course and also sets out how learners who have a disability or difficulty can access specific arrangements and support.

How to organise a course

The Handy Guide to Organising a Coaching Course provides up to date guidance about how to organise and manage a Level 1 course. If you are looking to organise a course in a non-mainland location, please also refer to the Non-Mainland Course Organisation Guidelines.

We welcome new course organisers coming forward. If you are interested in organising your own course, please use the handy guide as your first point of reference. Once you are familiar with this and are ready to organise a course please register your course with Archery GB using the Course Registration form. If you require any further information or support during the course organisation process please contact Hannah Lucas (Development & Business Support Officer) for assistance.
