An Instruction of Beginner Archers Clinic/Workshop is scheduled to be held in April 2009. The place and date will be announced later.
The pre-requisites for the coaching clinic, Instruction of Beginner Archers are that all applicants are AANS members and that they pay the $80.00 clinic/workshop fees to AANS in advance of the clinic.
The materials are in depth and we would like everyone attending to have ample time to read the required information thoroughly and to complete the pre-clinic requirements.
The clinic is an integrated workshop, combining both Technical information and two multi-sport Theory modules, Making Ethical Decisions and Planning a Practice. With these materials combined it is no longer necessary to take the Multi-Sport Theory Part "A" separately to become certified as an archery coach.
We were asked to limit the workshop, Instruction of Beginner Archers, to 12 applicants by those who developed this nationally accredited course. This is the new course which is taking the place of the old NCCP Level I Technical and Theory. It is also much more involved than the old NCCP Level I Technical course.
As soon as we have enough participants (8 - 10) we will set the date for the next course. There are now 2 persons who have paid the required fees for the course.
This is a two day workshop involving 16 hours of instruction. There will be a need for shooting facilities for part of the course. We find the best place to host such a workshop is at a school where there is Audio-Visual equipment readily available. We will be in need of an overhead projector, a VCR, DVD player and a TV for parts of the instruction. If you have such a facility available and would be willing to sponsor such a clinic we'd consider holding the workshop there.
We will also need your mailing address and e-mail address. When the clinic fees have been paid the workshop manuals and accompanying information will be sent to you directly.
If you wish to attend the course you can send your monies to the address on the bottom of the AANS application. Just add a note that the additional $80 per person is for the course fees when you send in the application.
