Coaching Presenters and Assessors Needed

Share this article

Archery Australia is seeking qualified members to express interest in becoming a Coach Presenter/Assessor to help with the national training/reaccreditation process.

Currently each RGB has one or two people established in these roles however we more talented presenters as COVID-19 stalled the reaccreditation and training process.

Course Details

The cost of doing the presenters course is $350. The Course will be run at a location in each RGB and successful candidates will have their travel, and where necessary, their accommodation covered by AA.
