LEVEL ONE - THEORY LEVEL - For Archers and Coaches
Involves attending a three-day seminar to fully understand the basics of the KSL Shot Cycle. To obtain a Level 1 Certificate you are required to pass a multiple choice theory exam. The pass mark is 80% or higher. Level 1 Certification does not allow you to coach as it is theory only. This course is for the benefit of archers as well as potential coaches. Upon successfully passing Level 1 a Level 1 Achievement Certificate is awarded and signed by Mr Lee. An entry is also maintained in the International register.
LEVEL TWO - PRACTICAL LEVEL - Coaches Only
Can only be achieved after passing the Level 1 theory exam. A 12 month wait is required after first attempting the Level 1 exam before Level 2 training can commence. To pass Level 2 you are required to sit a refresher Level 1 course combined with Level 2 training followed by a rigorous practical test one-on-one with Kisik Lee. On successfully passing Level 2 a Level 2 Coach Certificate is awarded and signed by Mr Lee. An entry is also maintained in the International register of qualified Kisik Lee International Coaching Certified (KLICC) Coaches.
LEVEL THREE - TOP LEVEL - Coaches Only
Equivalent to a Level 5 in the USA and only awarded by Mr Lee to outstanding coaches who have demonstrated their ability to coach archers to high standards in the KSL Shot Cycle. A Level 3 coach must also be able to demonstrate they can ‘coach the coaches’. Level 3 is only awarded directly by Kisik Lee and can only be applied for after 3 years of coaching using the KSL Shot Cycle. On successfully passing Level 3 a Level 3 Coach Certificate is awarded and signed by Mr Lee. An entry is also maintained in the International register of KLICC Coaches.
Jon Barnard, President of Australia’s largest target archery club, Sydney Olympic Park Archers, became dissatisfied with the lack of management and coaching of the sport in Australia following Mr Lee’s exit to become the USA Head Coach. The problems particularly became evident when Australia did not even have a Head Coach leading into or at the London Olympics. Jon founded World Archery Australia in an effort to improve standards. He contacted Mr Lee to speak at a seminar he was organising in Sydney in December 2012 and was thrilled when Mr Lee accepted the invitation. The seminar proved to be very successful and immediately received interest from other parts of the world as it quickly became evident there was also a lack of coaching structure in other countries. From this the idea was also born to establish a worldwide recognised coaching and certification system using Mr Lee’s modern archery coaching techniques. KLICC is now rapidly being adopted throughout the world. Ricci Cheah from Sydney Australia recently became the world's first level 3 coach, 22 Coaches have already attained Level 2 Cetification and over 70 hold Level 1 certificates. These coaches are up-to-date with the world's most advanced coaching techniques from the world's most successful coach and are in high demand for their knowledge and qualifications with some receiving good remuneration.
