Kathleen Millar was asked to return to Archery Canada’s coach certification programme on April 02, 2017 to train NCCP coach evaluators from across the country for the Competition-Development context.
She was involved with the pilot of this programme in January 2014. This training session was part of a larger 4-day event hosted in Hamilton by the Coaches Association of Ontario. Many sports were in attendance, with the archery delegation being one of the largest. Archery representatives attended from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba and British Columbia.
A coach evaluator is an important part of assessing coach competency after appropriate training. The evaluator’s role is to ensure that the coach is competent, but also to suggest future learning opportunities and areas to strengthen. If the coach is found to be competent, then certification is granted.
Kathleen has been involved in the national coach certification programme since 1976.
