IFAA level 1 instructors course conclusion

By Nick Anton

IFAF Coaching Admin

Dear Archers,

IFAF hosted another IFAA level 1 instructors course in Portlaoise. The course was delivered by Wellesley McGown of Kilmore Archery Club, assisted Dave Leigh of Galtee Archers and by IFAF Coaching Admin Nick Anton

The participants were guided through an intensive two day course working through not only their teaching techniques but also on their own shooting sequence, the ins and outs of IFAA rounds, IFAA rules and fair few biscuits. Thanks are due to Laois Archery for the use of their hall and equipment, and to Owen and Olivia Reynolds for being “beginners” for the would-be coaches to teach.

Our new IFAA Level1 coaches are:

James Moloney, Mayo Archery Club

Brendan McHugh, Mayo Archery Club

Mark Deevy, Na Laoch Dall

Arran Towers, South Cork Field Archers

Diane Cummins, Ashgrove Archers

David McCaffrey, Ashgrove Archers

Ryan Fitzgerald, Dark Knights Archery

Clodagh Nolan, Dunbrody

Congratulations to them all!
