  • All Archery Instructors will be transferred to become Level 1 Coaches
  • All Club Coaches will be transferred to become Level 2 Coaches
  • All Regional Coaches will be transferred to become Level 3 Coaches
  • All Coaching accreditation expiry dates between 31st October 2019 and 31st December 2021 will be extended until December 31st
  • All coaching accreditation that has an expiry date after 31st December 2021, will be valid until the stated expiry date.
