Course for European Coaching Trainers
Lausanne – 2 December 2010
With the common work of EMAU, FITA, Olympic Solidarity, European NOCs, CNOSF and the French Archery Federation, a major project will be soon proposed to European coaches. The principle is to teach archer coaches with a good experience at level 2 (upon 3) how to train level 1 coaches (in 2011 and level 2 in 2012).

This could help, in a close future, to train more level 1 and 2 coaches. It will be way more useful than organising only coaching courses in several European countries as used to do over the last years. Moreover, a reduction of courses costs could be expected, as well as more available trainers, and probably closer from the course location.
Actual project plans:
Course length
The course will last one year with two camps. Between the camps, all candidates will have to conduct at least one coaching course.
First camp: Arrival on 27 February 2011; the course will start on 28 February in the morning and will end on 5 March in the evening; the candidates will leave on 6 March.
Second camp: Not scheduled yet, but at the same period in 2012.
14 coaches (only one funded by country)


Attendants’ profile
Candidates to the course must:
Have a consequent experience in level 2 coaching in archery
Be charged by their national archery federation to train coaches in our sport
Accept to train coaches abroad. On the long range, the goal is to get one coaching course conductor per country; it will take a while! Meanwhile, we hope that these trainers will assist other countries, or groups of countries.
Priority will be given to countries being in high need of archery coaching education.
André KORLAAR (NED) and Pascal COLMAIRE (FITA Development Director)
The course will be conducted in English. Pending candidates’ profile, a French or Russian translation is possible. In order to keep time for training, there will be only one translation.
