Your Council needs more archery instructors! Many of you have experienced the wait times at our Scouting events at archery. The primary cause of this is a lack of instructors. To provide our Scouts of all ages experience in this event, a Level 1 archery course is being offered.

The USA Archery Level 1 Instructor certification course provides the necessary tools to maintain a high level of safety both on and off the archery range for camps and beginner archery programs. To successfully complete the requirements for this certification, students must successfully pass the USA Archery Level 1 Instructor Certification online course, including the online exam and register for and complete the "in-person" USA Archery Level 1 Instructor practical course to officially receive a USA Archery Level 1 Instructor certificate of completion.

The “in-person” practical course will be held at the Knox Scout Reservation on 6 November.

The USA Archery Level 1 Instructor will learn about range safety, range setup, the steps of shooting, equipment and repair, programs and lesson plans and is well prepared to teach beginner archery programs to people of all ages and abilities in a variety of disciplines.

Practical Course Length: 4 Hours

Practical Course Cost: $15

Certification Period: Three years from the date of the course completion

Minimum Age: 15 (A student who is 14 years old and within 30 days of his or her 15th birthday may take the Level 1 Archery Instructor Certification course. However, the instructor may not submit the Applicant Data form until the student turns 15 years of age.)
