members should know. The course is based on the methods used by Olympic
Coach Kisik Lee. After completing the online course, you will
receive a provisional certification. A 30-60 minute practical portion
must be completed. The practical portion will be available at USCA
workshops, certain USCA tournaments, or through USCA Coaches who are USCA certified.

equipment tuning. All club officers should take this certification
course. Just as the USCA Judge program is open to all USCA members, the
USCA Coach certification course will also be open to all members. Best of
all -- it's free, it's easy -- and it's online!
For those members who attended the USCA workshop in November and received your

The USCA Coach Certification program is exclusive to USCA members and is not
part of any other certification program. USCA will recognize its
certified coaches through its Coach pin program where coaches receive USCA
Coach pins for their service of 3, 5, 7, 10, 15 years and beyond. At
USIAC, coaches are also recognized for their service with plaques.
USCA encourages all members to get involved with your organization by getting
certified as Judges and Coaches. The benefit is not only to your club and
school but also to you as an individual athlete. Knowledge is power -- and USCA
strives to provide as much archery knowledge as possible.
