I am a National Coaching Certified Program (NCCP) archery instructor with 5 years of experience. From traditional archery to Olympic recurve and compound shooting, I am experienced in coaching from complete novices to experienced archers.

Archery can be intimidating for beginners due to the cost of equipment & safety requirements. My mission is to lower the barriers to entry for this sport and provide travelers such as yourself an experience that might not be available to you back home.

I am supported by a family of talented folks who will be helping me with co hosting this experience.

Perfect outing with 10yr old child. Bryan instructed us well on safety and technique and then gave us ample practice opportunity with adjustments to our form peppered throughout.

Archery practice was superfun. They teach you about safety and correct form, and after that it is practice time! We really enjoyed the session and we highly recommend it.

Highly recommend, Bryan was an exceptional instructor. I was welcomed, offered water, gave me clear instructions. It was so much fun and I didn't expect to be good and get the target. Amazing time! The photo taking and videography by Bryan was top-notch. Bravo Vanessa & friends. :) I will recommend to anyone that listens.

What a neat experience ! we jumped right into the lesson, and the instructor gave good, continuous feedback. I really enjoyed it, and might even come back just to practice!

I really enjoyed this great and for me new experience. First I was a little scared of hurting myself or others, but Brain and the other crew memebers really made me feel comfortable and I had so much fun and learned a lot. They were always there and helping and explaining how you can get even better in this short introduction lesson. I would recommend it to everyone and if I would stay longer in Montreal I would definitelycome back here.

We got the pleasure of having Sam as our instructor. He really personalized the experience for everyone in our group. He took time to help every single one of us, whether it be adjusting our posture, or just helping us aim. He really made all our anxieties go away with his friendly demeanor and relaxed but professional instruction.
