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 Level1coaches 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!
