 2.          Increasing Number of High Performance Archery Coaches in Canada

Archery Canada is in a stronger position from a coaching development perspective as it applies to the future. In the 2016 Advanced Coaching Diploma Program we have the following three coaches now enrolled: Kelly Chambers of Ontario, Trina Snooks of Nova Scotia, and Duncan Crawford of Prince Edward Island. Given that there are less than 40 Advanced Coaching Diploma (ACD) candidates in Canada, this is a major representation by Canada's high performance archery coaches. To gain entry as an ACD candidate requires a great deal of background experience, a rigorous application process, and is a two-year commitment to this self-funded Program.

The ACD is part of the new Competency Based Coach training program that is replacing the former Level 4/5 National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The ACD is said to be "The Pinnacle of NCCP Coach Training".  The ACD consists of four key themes: i) Coaching Leadership; ii) Coaching Effectiveness; iii) Performance Planning; and iv) Training and Competition Readiness.  The ACD is one step towards certification in the NCCP Competition Stream. To complete his/her full certification credit, the coach must contact his/her national sport organization to apply for the sport specific evaluation. 

Under the former NCCP system, Archery Canada has benefitted from the contribution of 10 Level 4 coaches and one Level 5 coach, all of whom have advanced high performance athlete development across Canada since the 1990’s. ACD and Level 4/5 certified coaches are recognized as being among the most qualified coaches and leaders of athletes and sport programs provincially, nationally and internationally.

The fact that Archery Canada has three coaches who have voluntarily undertaken this two-year commitment, along with the financial commitment and personal sacrifice, is a testament to the dedication and desire of our coaches to be among the best in the country and to develop themselves as professionals. This bodes well for the current and future Canadian archery athletes that are mentored by the growing number of Competition Stream coaches that are being trained and certified in the Competition Stream of the NCCP.

Archery Canada is proud to acknowledge the initiative of the three new archery coach candidates in the ACD Program and the contributions of the certified Level 4/5 archery coaches.

2016 Recurve Year in Preview

Recurve Olympic Year in Preview

Alec Denys, Chair of the High Performance Committee caught up with Alan Brahmst, Archery Canada’s High Performance Advisor, to ask 10 questions and gain a perspective on our High Performance program, and our plans for this Olympic Year.

1) What have you been working on to prepare for this important year?

The last quarter of 2015 was very busy with our annual planning meeting with Own The Podium and other key stakeholders. After our meeting in early November, we focused on the process for the implementation of our key programs and projects, as well as the assessment of our athlete and talent pool, and our technical leadership model.

2) What are the program goals for 2016?

All of our system work is guided by our objective of winning Olympic medals, now or in the future. So, we have to make some tough decisions with a limited budget. This year, essentially we are taking a two-pronged direction. First, we have a very targeted approach for our objective toward Rio. Second, we are now investing in our programming toward Tokyo 2020, and beyond.

3) What efforts are you taking now toward 2020?

We have developed a long-term performance program and called it “Target 2020”. Our key partners, Own The Podium, the Canadian Olympic Committee, and Sport Canada are supportive of our approach to invest in the long-term. The program focuses on the athlete group between Cadet and U-25. We will be investing in this model through a variety of avenues and our athlete and coaching pathways will have strong connections to Target 2020.

4) Do you have specific objectives for the Olympics?

Yes, based on what we have been doing over the past 2 years, we feel we have an opportunity to position for a medal in the men’s competitions. Our challenge at the moment is that only Crispin Duenas was able to win a single Olympic Quota spot for Canada at the 2015 Worlds, and we have only one opportunity left to win a 3-member team quota spot.

5) What is the status of the women’s program toward Rio?

Well, for the women, we are in a different place at the moment based on our performance gap to the rest of the world. For our women, we feel we have an opportunity to qualify a single archer, but we are not presented with the evidence at the moment that suggests we can qualify a team, or compete for a medal. Consequently, our investments are made on this basis. Nevertheless, we certainly want to qualify and compete. The Olympics are very important for our program, and they help to inspire the next generation of athletes as we build toward Tokyo in 2020 and beyond.

6) How does the year look in terms of the ongoing preparation?

2016 Recurve Year in Preview Page 2 v4 Jan 8, 2016 We will be communicating the detailed “Road to Rio” plans this January. We are in the first phase at the moment, where we have identified our athlete squad and will be staging two significant camps in February and April. From there, it’s the World Cup season and a focus on the individual programs. This year, it’s all about preparing to perform when it matters, at the qualifiers in Colombia and Turkey, and, of course, in Rio.

7) How will you select the Rio team and what is the process?

We will be applying our selection policy and process that was put in place in early 2015. As with other Olympic sports, and common to all Canadian sports, our top athletes are being evaluated on an ongoing basis. Our Internal Nomination Procedure has just been published, and the phased process is a little different for the men and women. In the end, any nomination will be based on how many quota spots we’ve been able to qualify.

8) The process you outline suggests that there won’t be a selection trials?

Yes, that is correct. A number of things must be considered to ensure we select the athletes best able to support our performance objectives, and a single competition does not achieve this. For our program, we are consistently assessing our athletes within the selection criteria, and then through their performance during identified events in 2016. Not holding a selection trials represents a change for Archery Canada, but, as part of our efforts to modernize our system and close the gap to leading nations, we simply have to continue to adjust our processes.

9) When you suggest a gap to leading nations, can you give us a perspective of where our archers rank globally?

Well, the top men shoot 675 and above, and most of the top 10 shoot 680 or better. From an age perspective, the top 5 men average 23.2, and the top 10 24.2 years of age. We have only one archer who shot above 680 in 2015 and only one other archer who shot above 670. But, for 2015, we also had a cluster of archers who shot in the 660 and above range, while we have a total of 8 archers who have shot 640 or better, including 2 juniors. So, there is certainly a gap, but we can see the top. For our women, the picture is a little different, and we need to rebuild and look long-term. The top women consistently shoot 660 and above. The average age of the top 5 women in the world is 21.4 years, and for the top 10 it is 24.4 years. Currently, in Canada we have 2 women who shot a 640 or better in 2015, and both are U-25. From there, only 6 archers shot above 600, with the average of their best scores at 613. We simply have to broaden the base of our athletes who are capable to compete at a world level, and that takes time and a requirement to improve our system and development efforts.

10) Thank you for this update – any last comments before we sign off?

We are looking forward to an exciting 2016 with the Rio Olympics, and the implementation of the initial phase of our Target 2020 program. To get to where we want to go, which is to consistently push for podium performances, the path will be difficult, and it will take time. But, I think we’ll continue to put the right building blocks in place to get us there in the next 5 years.

 2.   2019 3D World Championship Awarded to The Lakeland Archers of Lac La Biche, Alberta

 

Coming out of the World Archery meetings held this past weekend (December 12-13, 2015) in Istanbul, Turkey, World Archery announced those cities selected to host World Championships over the next 2 to 5 years. There was some very exciting news for Canada. The 2019 3D World Championship has been awarded to The Lakeland Archers of Lac La Biche, Alberta. Rene Schaub and a small team of volunteers prepared the bid package. Archery Canada provided its input throughout the preparation process and whole heartedly endorsed the bid.  

Congratulations to Rene and the rest of his team on this tremendous accomplishment!

 3.  Competition Development Coach Certification Context Approved by CAC

Archery Canada is pleased to announce that the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) has given final approval for our Competition Development coach certification context. This completes Archery Canada's transition to the "new" competency based National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). 

Archery Canada's approved NCCP programs are now available through its member Archery Provincial / Territorial Sport Organizations (PSO / TSO).  Coach pathways leading to certification in all the contexts are available on the Archery Canada website at the following link: http://www.archerycanada.ca/en/coaching/coaching-certification  .

Delivery of Competition Development in each of the PSOs/TSOs may be a format of small group or possibly individual mentor. Cross PSO/TSO training may also be needed depending on human resources in each province/territory. There must be an athlete/coach candidate pair to work together for a year in order to complete the Competition Development certification. The athlete should be in the higher levels of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD).

Coaches in the Competition stream usually have previous coaching experience or are former athletes in the sport. They tend to work with athletes over the long term to improve performance, often in preparation for provincial, national, and international competitions. There are three contexts of workshops for competition coaches that reflect the stages of athlete development: Introduction, Development and High Performance. The Introduction context of competition workshops are designed for coaches of athletes moving from the Learn to Shoot to the Train to Shoot LTAD stages. The Development context of competition workshops are designed for coaches of athletes ranging from the Train to Shoot to the Train to Compete LTAD stages. The High Performance context of competition workshops are typically focused on coaches of athletes in the Train to Excel stage of LTAD, although there is the possibility of some phasing in of a Train to Compete athlete into the High Performance level because of the fluidity of the stages of long-term athlete development. Coaches in this context require specific skills and abilities in order to meet the needs of their athletes.

Bruce Savage, Chair of Archery Canada’s Coaching Certification Committee has played a pivotal leadership role in the transition to and ongoing development and completion of the Competition Introduction and Competition Development contexts of Archery Canada’s NCCP. Bruce has been the lead in the development of the course resource materials and has facilitated a number of successful pilot courses. Sincere thanks and appreciation is extended to Bruce for the enormous time, effort and expertise that he has devoted to the development of our NCCP.

7.         WADA Publishes 2016 Prohibited List

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to alert the Canadian sport community that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the 2016 Prohibited List. The List will come into effect on January 1, 2016.

The 2016 Prohibited List, the Summary of Modifications, and the Monitoring Program are now available for download on WADA’s website in English and French.

There are very few changes to the 2016 List: the only additions are in the category S4, Hormone and Metabolic Modulators. “Insulin-mimetics were added to include all insulin-receptor agonists, and meldonium (mildronate) was added because of evidence of its use by athletes with the intention of enhancing performance.”

The List is an international standard identifying substances and methods prohibited in sport. It was first published in 1963 by the International Olympic Committee. Since 2004, WADA has been responsible for the preparation and publication of the List, which it updates every year.

Athletes can find out if their medications are prohibited using the following CCES resources, all of which will be updated on January 1, 2016, to reflect the new List. 

Athletes can apply for a medical exemption if they are prescribed a prohibited medication for the treatment of an illness or condition. The CCES Medical Exemption Wizard (www.cces.ca/medical-exemptions) can help athletes find out if they need to apply for an exemption, what to include in the application, and where to submit it.

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization with a responsibility to administer the CADP. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.
