Archery Canada announces change in high performance program leadership

OTTAWA, ON –Archery Canada regrets to announce that Alan Brahmst will be concluding his role as High Performance Director with Archery Canada at the end of August. We have been fortunate to benefit from the expertise and leadership that Alan brought to the organization since he was first contracted as an advisor for Archery Canada in 2014. The role of a High Performance Director was one that helped to introduce necessary strategic shifts, but earlier this year discussions began with the board and Alan to explore a new structure that would serve the needs of the organization and the organization budget. A full-time staff role will be implemented to support high performance programming.

“Alan has been a key contributor to the Archery Canada leadership” said Aaron Bull, President of Archery Canada. “He has been recognized as an accomplished sport leader, and brought years of proven success in leading transformative growth strategies in high performance sport, Alan has implemented sport system strategies in Archery that have been recognized as being gold standards in the Canadian sport system.”

There is no doubt that Alan has made a significant contribution to the sport across Canada. His expertise in sport systems and strategy, brought significant change to the Olympic program sport culture and these contributions will remain as guiding elements in the system.

Archery Canada expresses our gratitude to Alan. The organization is introducing a new high performance staffing structure which will be rolled out over the next few weeks starting with the hiring of a High Performance Manager who will manage and deliver Archery Canada’s National Team programs, specifically for the Olympic, Compound and Paralympic target archery programs. This position will be further supported by the Executive Director and through program staff and the program leadership pools. Through this process, the development of a transition plan is already in progress and Archery Canada’s immediate objective is to support the athletes and coaches in high performance programs as they complete the final major competitions of 2023 and prepare for the season ahead.
