TWO DAY WORKSHOP - SAT. JAN. 20 & SUN JAN. 21
DNR BUILDING, 24 CREIGHTON ROAD, SHUBENACADIE
The Competition Development Course is designed to help you understand how to create and operate a 'higher' performance environment. At the very least, you will know how to create, implement and manage a Training Plan for a higher performance athlete. There is a lot of curriculum to cover: a workbook, Training Plan, and 3 evaluations including technical, practical and theoretical principles. There is also a MED (Making Ethical Decisions) component which is usually done after the fact - online. Participants will also have to complete a set of 7 multi sport courses before they can be certified - http://www.coachingns.com/en-us/nccp/multisportmodules.aspx
This program is two workshops, one on Jan. 20 -21 and the second about a year from now. It is encouraged that you ask a lot of questions and anticipate that there will be a lot of collaboration and group discussion.
This course is best suited to people who are, or are interested in training Archery athletes to a high competitive level - whether it be field, target, or 3D. The concepts taught are applicable to all styles of archery.
The Competition Development Course will be delivered by Master Coach Developer (MCD - only 2 in Canada) Bruce Savage of Ontario. Bruce has coached many local, provincial, and International athletes and is the former Coaching Chair of Archery Canada.
