My Archery Story
I started shooting when I was 7 years old, in 2005. I started shooting with Hoops Archery, which closed down, after my father was showing me some summer camp ideas. He saw that there was an archery summer camp, which was when he asked me if I wanted to try it. I have never been around archery, other than what I saw on the TV, I said of course! He then proceeded to show me all of his old equipment which got me even more interested!
I still remember the first day of the camp.
The first time I touched and shot a bow.
The first time shooting a Bull’s Eye.
Which to everyone’s surprise was my first arrow!
I am a level 2 coach, working towards my level 3. I have worked with many different types of people, young and old. One of my biggest accomplishments as a coach was to help two students fall back in love with the sport. They were on the verge of quitting, but with some much needed help they were able to get back into the sport and find a coach and team that suited them. I was just the vessel to help them get too where they needed.
