USA Archery Introduces Club Excellence Program

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is excited to announce a new development opportunity for coaches of JOAD, Collegiate and Adult clubs with the Club Excellence Program.

The Club Excellence Program is a unique 9-month learning experience available to select USA Archery clubs and their coaching staff. The program is customized for club leaders and coaches wanting to elevate the status of their club and develop athletes to be nationally and internationally competitive. It is ideal for Instructors and Coaches looking to prepare for Level 3- and 4-NTS Coach Certification and to further develop Level 4-NTS Coaches.

The program curriculum focuses on developing coaches and clubs through the USA Archery Coach and Club Competencies. These competencies provide a road map for developing quality coaching for both recreational based clubs and clubs focusing on high performance. Selected clubs can nominate up to two coaches to take part in the program, and selected coaches must be willing to further develop within the USA Archery Coach Competencies.

Education and Training Manager, Guy Krueger says, “I’m really excited about this opportunity we have created for clubs and coaches. We want to improve the quality of our coaches and clubs, and this program will stretch and challenge coaches to improve their abilities drastically over the 9-month duration."

USA Archery Level 5-NTS Coach Linda Beck leads one of the clubs that participated in the Program Pilot and shared: “The Club Excellence Program provides coaches with the tools, direction and mentorship to be the best club they can be and produce high performing athletes.”
