USA announced today that the Coach Education Grant Program will continue with at least 70 individual coach grants in 2010. This program proved to be a success in 2009 as more than 40 USA Archery member coaches utilized the program in 2009. The available funding is made possible by USA Archery and the Easton Sports Development Foundation.
"The USA Archery Coaching certification program is one of our larger initiatives over the next several years," said Denise Parker, USA Archery CEO. "This enables USA Archery the opportunity to provide a consistent coaching platform to all coaches."
The purpose of the grant is to help subsidize the cost of transitioning from the previous Coach Education Program to the new USA Archery Coach Certification Program. All USA Archery coaches, who have a current membership, are eligible to apply for one of the grants.
A large emphasis is placed on the grassroots coaches active in the JOAD program. These individuals will be given first priority to receive funding. The Community Coach grant will cover course fees up to $250. The Transition Regional course grants will help offset travel costs for individuals up to $100 and course fees up to $250.
All coaches will receive approval of their grant request prior to attending any of the scheduled courses and reimbursement will be provided upon completion of the course. There are a limited number of grants available for 2010, so apply early.
