Attire: wear comfortable casual, if you are prone to chills from AC bring a light jacket perhaps. You will need note-taking materials, pens or pencils. If voice recording helps you can use that as well. Lindsey especially recommends the Livescribe Pen which helped her for years of college lectures so if you have one be sure to bring it!
Be at the classroom by no later than 4PM Friday 25th, ready to start.
Friday, 25th: 4pm - 9pm (eat dinner prior to course)
Saturday, 26th: 8am - 6pm (1 hour lunch break and frequent breaks throughout the course)
Sunday, 27th: 8am - 5pm
TO brush up on your basic skillset knowledge, take this pre-test from the Easton Foundation (and feel free to work through the modules!) to figure out how much you already know, and to prepare for the course. You will need to be able to name ALL of the parts of the bows and arrow diagrammed in the book before the end of the day<hint>.
You will be given a printed copy of manual and material first thing Friday.
You can bring your own bow, we will discuss tuning functions. We will have brief periods of shooting with gear as necessary.
MEMBERSHIP IN USA ARCHERY? The level 1 is the only USAA course where membership is not required, nor is a background check required. If you do join the USAA and pass the level 1 course you are afforded insurance coverage for your instructor archery activities. If you plan to obtain Level III Coaching certification, you will have to do both membership and the background check in order to receive USAA approval of your certification so you may wish to plan accordingly. Want to join USA Archery? Click Here to Go Straight to USAA Membership Services System. Click here for information on background screening.
Read the manuals from level 1 and 2 as thoroughly as you can - you will get far more out of the course!
If you need to contact Ron, send an email or text him, his mobile number is 512-797-4127. See you there!
This is a very information-rich course, success comes with proper preparation (and helps prevent mental overload!) so the more time you invest before the class the more you will actually get out of the course. This course is not a guarantee of passing - if you do not have the knowledge, demonstrate the skills and drills, and have a solid grasp of the Kisik Lee Shot Cycle components, you will NOT pass.
Once you have used Paypal to pay for the course, you will be sent an email with links to more digital study material. The size of the class will be limited, your reservation is not assured until payment received. Full refunds will be made up until the day before class starts if you need to cancel.
