About the Coaching Registry

 

The CFMA Approved Coach Registry (ACR)

Horseback archery in Canada is relatively new but expanding quickly.  Entering the sport is best done through the guidance of a good teacher with experience in the sport.  The CFMA Approved Coach Registry offers newcomers a list of Canadian horse archery educators who the CFMA deems to be well-suited to coach students with high standards of ethics, professionalism, skill, experience, and safety.  This will keep us on track for a bright future in Canadian horse-archery.
