Pass it On: A one-day course in disability awareness for archery coaches

Although most coaches and volunteers have the skills to include disabled people in archery activities, they are often anxious that they may lack the appropriate confidence or expertise to work with disabled people.

Archery GB, in partnership with the British Wheelchair Archery Association, has organised a Pass it On course which will help you increase your confidence and push your coaching abilities just that bit further, so that you can help more people enjoy and take part in archery.

The course includes practical sessions and class room discussion, led by a friendly team of experienced coaches including former Paralympic Coach Helen George. You’ll develop your skills and knowledge around coaching disabled people making helping your approach to coaching become more inclusive
