Eleven dedicated Adult Volunteers from the Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force (ACF) recently participated in a comprehensive two-day Archery Instructors Course at Holcombe Moor Training Camp. Led by experienced instructors Helen from NFP Archery, with assessment support from Bryan, the course aimed to equip the volunteers with additional expertise in teaching cadets the art of archery.

The significance of archery as an Olympic sport cannot be understated. By providing training in this discipline, cadets have the opportunity to develop essential skills that could pave the way for their future involvement in the world of competitive archery, and potentially even lead them to become future Olympians.

Under the guidance of skilled instructors, the two-day course delved into various aspects of archery instruction, covering essential techniques, safety protocols, and effective teaching methodologies. Through hands-on practical sessions and comprehensive theoretical modules, the volunteers acquired the knowledge and expertise necessary to confidently teach cadets the intricacies of archery.
