The HAA Coaching Group aim to run a number of workshops every year which give coaches in the county opportunities to learn and develop their skill set. These workshops also count as CPD for those coaches needing to achieve CPD points in order to renew their coaching licences.

If you would like to suggest or offer workshops, please contact us and let us know.


There are limited spaces available on all workshops, please ensure you are able to attend before booking.

Please email to book a space on a workshop.

Please note: Unless stated otherwise there will be a £5 charge for workshops to cover the costs of tea, coffee, biscuits and venue hire. Please pay on arrival via cash or card. Some workshops will include hand-outs for you to take away, but we recommend that you bring pen/pencil/notepad for making notes if you wish.

Coaching Archers with Hearing Loss - Southampton Archery Club

Saturday 2nd March 2024 - 1pm until 4pm

This workshop is for coaches who want to increase their abilities and confidence in communicating with archers who have hearing loss. If you regularly coach, the chances are that you have coached people who have hearing difficulties already; one in five adults in the UK are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. This figure may sound surprising, but many people feel uncomfortable discussing their hearing difficulties and there may be no visible signs. Whether or not an individual chooses to disclose their hearing loss with you, there are steps you can take as a coach to reduce participation barriers and improve the accessibility of archery at your club. What's more, the strategies and techniques that you will learn in this workshop will help you be a better communicator, not just for archers with hearing loss, but for all the archers you work with.

This workshop will be held at Quicks in Waterlooville and there will be no tea-break and therefore no charge for this workshop. If you have attended this workshop before, Quicks ask that you do not attend again and allow other coaches the chance to attend as space in their shop is limited.
