After you have attended our Intro to Archery clinic (prerequisite), we provide a learning path of weekly classes delivering Archers Quest rank advancement in Texans Archery Club’s USA Archery (JOAD); Adult Archery Achievement (AAA).
Classes are structured around curriculum of ArchersQuest.info – a self paced rank advancement program for archery. Program prepares for equipment choices and develops a competitive, educated ARCHER!
Certified instructors teach age appropriate skills based on rank level. Each rank has online homework and quiz that includes quest and shooting requirement. Each class session uses a worksheet in preparation to pass the online quiz and shooting score. Separately, Students are also encouraged to participate in our monthly (TAIL) shoot, the last Sunday of each month, for additional USA Archery performance awards earned under tournament conditions. Students develop archery skill and knowledge, while enjoying FUN activities. The program is curriculum based, with focus on individual growth in physical, mental, and leadership confidence. Equipment provided at initial levels is appropriate to age/program (minimum age 9 years old). Personal equipment is not required or allowed in some cases. The program offers the opportunity to tryout different styles of equipment prior to making a purchase decision. Assistance is available with purchasing specifications. This program develops educated and proficient archers ready to try out for competitive team archery or fully explore individual archery recreation! Adults or those with advance gear may choose a private lesson to be assessed for program level admittance.
Parents are welcome to be involved – once comfortable, youth may be dropped off for class session by parent. Safe Sport policies enforced.
Students progress through the four available ranks delivered in these classes. The first 3 ranks complement NASP and other youth program shooting distances. Most students complete the ARCHER level within 6 months.
