Archery qualifications

At Silver Arrow we run courses to enable you to teach others how to shoot.

We run Instructors courses and Archery GB’s Level 1 and Level 2 coaching qualifications.

Instructors Award

Learn how to get novices enjoying the wonderful sport of archery.

This course will help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need to run archery have a go sessions.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a certificate of achievement and be an Archery GB qualified Instructor.

The course lasts for 2.5 days.

Teachers Award

It is very similar to the Instructors Award except that it has been written specifically for teachers who want to introduce archery into their school.

It runs over two days

Why Silver Arrow?

The instructors courses at Silver Arrow are fantastic!  Just read some of our reviews to see how much people have enjoyed them.

The reasons we are so good??

1.  We actually run sessions like the ones you will be delivering.  We routinely deliver have-a-go’s to children and adults - so we know how to do it, and we can give you loads of practical insights.

2. Sue is a professional lecturer - she has delivered lectures to rooms full of sleepy students with hangovers and had them all engaged and participating.  With only a maximum of 12 in your instructor course class you will all be involved and learning all the time.

3.  You learn best when you are having fun and enjoying yourself.  Sue will ensure you have a supportive and fun environment from the moment the course starts (please be aware there is the likelihood of some very bad joke telling).Date of next course:

Why Silver Arrow?

Review from our latest course:

The content and delivery of the course was excellent and compared to identical courses being offered at other places, speaking to my colleagues I've been receiving comments such as "sounds like your course is better structured than the one I'm doing, we've not done anything like that on my course, your course sounds more in tune and engaging, etc".

Coaching Skills Course

For anyone who wants to improve their coaching skills.

This day is for all levels of coach or anyone wanting to start coaching.

During the day we will explore the observational skills required to identify what steps you (as a coach) need to take to help your archers.

Then we will explore those steps and discuss how to recognise the cause of problems that lead to a range of technique “issues”.

This will be a very hands on day and you will work with “real” archers in a practical setting helping them to develop their archery mastery.
