New Blind Archery Coaching Course Available

British Blind Sport is offering an online course for coaches (link below). I looked all over their pitch and couldn’t find what they were charging. (When we buy retail we expect there to be a price tag prominently displayed on everything, no?)

Here is a bit from the pitch “Coaching People with Visual Impairments is packed full of helpful tips, practical solutions and vibrant videos that will increase coaches’ knowledge, assurance and skills of coaching participants with VI, ultimately, making their practice more inclusive. The course is suitable for anyone coaching and is fully accessible to VI learners.”

If you take the course, let me know I will probably ask you to write a review for Archery Focus, but you will get paid for that review.

    Hi Steve, I have just signed up for this course as part of my studies for Level 2 coaching. Cost is very good at £9.00 GBP (inc tax). It’s a 7 module course, that should take about 3 hours to complete, according to the website.dgrb@

  2. Hi Steve £7.99 and a useful course. I did one with a guy called Dave Poyner before the online course was available. Dave is blind and shoots a pink compound. I learnt a whole lot from him and the course. As this is a VI only course and with the advice of British Blind Sport it should be pretty good. It’s British Steve of course it will be good……

    • Brits I know tell me that the British coaching structure was modeled after the American model, back when Americans dominated Olympic Archer. From what I can tell (I am unofficially a Friend of Archery GB and receive all of the newsletters, etc. You all are leaving us in the dust. On Britannia!

    Hey Steve – The course was about $10.00 and had some good information. It is not archery specific, but the information definitely could be applied to archery. It took me about an hour to complete the modules.

    • Very cool, thanks! It seemed to be being promoted as archery-specific but maybe I read that into the pitch.
