We’re teaming up with the University of Birmingham to find out the unique ingredients that make archers feel motivated and empowered. This is a really important question because not everyone reaps the positive benefits that archery can bring. Rather than helping them feel better about themselves, playing sport can damage some people’s sense of self-worth. As a result, many people drop out of sport.
This research is the first of its kind in archery, and it will help us to better understand the many factors upon whether archery is experienced as positive or negative. Using the findings, we will be able to help coaches and parents to understand empowering principles and develop their own strategies for creating a more empowering climate. The purpose of commissioning this project is to help archery to be engaging, enjoyable and empowering for every person taking part.
The research will be led independently of Archery GB by Professor Joan Duda, who is recognised worldwide for her expertise on motivation psychology and coaching.
are undertaking a review of the licence renewal scheme. We want to ensure that it is both meaningful to coaches and members.
We would like to hear from coaches (including those who have used the scheme and those who haven’t), as well as those responsible for renewing coaches locally including CCOs, RCOs, and renewal panel members. Based on the feedback and ideas we receive we will begin to identify how this may be changed for the future.
Two online surveys are now open until the end of August.
Coaches can take part in the consultation here.
