Approved Coaching Registry:
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!
This registry will come into effect as per January 1st 2020.

Additional insurance available:
Directors and Officers insurance
The club’s Commercial General Liability policy responds to law suits which result
from a bodily injury or a property damage in which it is felt the club bears some
responsibility. Your policy covers this and also covers directors and others
associated with hosting club activities for these types of claims. However there
are other things for which a director or officer may be sued which have nothing to
do with a bodily injury or a property damage. Typically these law suits are the
result of a wrongful act by a director and are filed by another director, club
member or a financial institution. Director’s and Officer’s policies are separate
policies with specialized wordings to deal with these situations.
The CFMA board of directors is covered by the umbrella insurance, but because
the branch clubs have different directors than the parent organization, the branch
club directors aren't covered. This is what "Directors & Officers" insurance is for -
and it is separate from the general liability insurance because many clubs feel
they don't need the extra coverage, its just an add-on if they want it. Costs are
usually in the range of $100 - $150.
