I scratched my head muchly at this, since so many of us have tried to find a way to get into archery and come up empty-handed. If Bruce is training so many coaches, how can this be? The few you can find are booked to Kingdom Come.
Bruce makes coaches with the Archery Canada seal of approval, where even as a coach to beginners, they'll be teaching the skills that'll set athletes up to go all the way. And I gotta say, I'm impressed to be taught by somebody with 40 years of experience and the Queen's Jubilee Medal for cred. I fully expected we'd be drinking tea with raised pinkies but when I met him, that didn't seem Bruce's style!
When I got talking to the awesome people in the class with me, I realized you could group them together like so: three are teachers, who'll be supporting in-school programs, and four are envoys from existing instructional/club settings where they assist. (One of whom drove in from Quebec because coach class there isn't offered in English. Wow!) And me an' Rob, we're preparing for a possible future magically fabulous indoor archery range but in the meantime, we won't be selling our services, just practising them on friends.
As you can see, two things explain where all the coaches are going: to the same places, and in a lot of cases, to streams that aren't available to just everybody. All the same, there are some options open to you and I recommend taking a peek at Archeryfolk and finding a coach who has that NCCP certification. Put yourself on a waitlist, if you need to. And if you're psyched to find a way to get into archery, pretty please take that survey in the top right:)
