USA Archery level 2 instructor certification. Qualified to teach junior Olympic archers . I have over 5 years of teaching experience. I am patient in coaching everything from traditional archery to Olympic recurve and compound shooting. I have a range of instructor experience from teaching people who have never shot a bow to advanced archers. I have been doing archery for over 15 years now. Archery may be intimidating for beginners due to equipment costs and safety requirements. However I am dedicated to lowering the barriers for entry into the sport of archery and providing travelers access to experience something that may not be available back home. I am passionate in advancing the next generation of archers.
