USA Archery Seeking Nominations for 2022 Coach of the Year Awards

USA Archery appreciates and highly values the effort and commitment of the coaches who dedicate themselves to helping our archers grow and achieve their goals. Each year USA Archery recognizes their efforts, and we invite our members to nominate outstanding coaches in each of the following Coach of the Year Award categories:

  • Volunteer Coach of the Year nominee – Male & Female
  • Developmental Coach of the Year nominee – Male & Female
  • The “Doc” Counsilman Science Award nominee

Awards are based on accomplishments from October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022. Nominees should demonstrate outstanding accomplishments in archery in the past year. Examples of such accomplishments may include, but are not limited to:

  • Podium results of the coach's athletes at state, national and international events, and contribution to the advancement of archery and the community.
  • Examples of creativity and innovation (i.e.: significant projects implemented, creative adaptations to coaching, digital transformation, social innovation, entrepreneurship, etc.)
  • Examples of how the coach has impacted or supported holistic athlete development (i.e.: personal and social development, health and wellbeing and educational attainment)

To be eligible for nomination, coaches must have:

  • Current USA Archery Level 2 or higher certification
  • Current USA Archery Membership

Coach of the Year Nominations may only be made by current USA Archery members and must be submitted by 12AM MT October 13, 2022. We ask that club members coordinate and consolidate nominations to one nomination per coach.

Nominate your coach.

Once nominations have been received, USA Archery Staff and the chairs from the JOAD, Collegiate, Athletes, and Para Athletes Advisory Councils will select the winner in each category. Awards will be selected based on a nominee’s level of proficiency of the skills described in the USA Archery Coaching Competencies and the results or impact on their athletes October 1, 2021- September 30, 2022 as described in the nomination submission.

Submit a nomination now or contact [email protected] for additional information.
