Archery GB Session Coaches

Coach Developers who led the presentation module were Danny Cameron and Andy Arnold, and were assisted on this and the previous ‘Using Your Coaching Skills Day’ by Thirsk coaches Linton Austen (L1), Thomas Keane (L2) and Tanya Nightingale (L2).

Danny (shown above, seated far left) commented: “It’s a great testament to the determination and tenacity of all these candidates to have completed all the course components during challenging times for both archery and for coaching, but we’re looking forward to seeing how they will each go on to make a positive difference in the sport.”
