Lancaster Archery Academy on Dec. 10 is hosting a Basic Instructor Course for coaches and educators interested in participating in the Scholastic 3D Archery program.
The popularity of 3D archery is exploding across the country, thanks to weekend club shoots and the annual tournament circuits organized by Archery Shooters Association (ASA) and the International Bowhunting Organization (IBO).
S3DA is a national organization aimed at helping young people get involved in – and be successful at - 3D archery, target archery and bowhunting. S3DA provides an environment in which archers can grow and develop as individuals and as teams within the sport of archery.
The Basic Instructor Course will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the S3DA program, the equipment used, range set up, basic archery form, safety in teaching the first shot and more. Participants also will learn how to build an after-school program or team in their area, and they will be able to work directly with the PA State S3DA Coordinator, Dan Schuller.
After finishing the course, a participant is considered to be S3DA certified. That certification is required by S3DA for a person to be an instructor in the program.
The Dec. 10 course will run from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Lancaster Archery Academy, 2195-A Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, PA 17602. Participants must be 18 or older and they must be members of S3DA. Participants can join S3DA during the course. Fee for the course is $80.
