More about the Course

This is an instructor course, not a basic skills course and some knowledgeand experience in archery will be helpful but is not a requirement. This is a good course to take to learn the essentials to improve your archery skills. You'll learn how to set up and operate a safe short-term archery range and introductory program, teach new archers, maintain your archery equipment, and learn common archery shooting errors and corrections. You will learn about the BSA archery range rules, safety regulations and opportunities for archery events by BSA and the Chickasaw Council. The three-year certification may be renewed with USA Archery based on adequate teaching experience without having to re-take the class. Volunteering for council and district archery events may not only satisfy the recertification requirement, but will hone your skills and support Chickasaw Council's shooting programs.

This 8-hour course fully prepares you to take the written exam and complete the safety briefing presentation the same day. Upon passing the requirements and completing your registration, your USA Archery Level 1 certification will be made available for downloading anytime and you will have access to online USA Archery Training Videos for you and your students.

Those who complete the instructor course and meet BSA requirements will be able to: (1) run a Scouts BSA and Venturing archery shooting event, (2) run a Cub Scout archery range at the district or council level, (3) check-out and rent council archery equipment (except LaPorte Machine which requires an additional sign-off), (4) meet competency requirements for Archery merit badge counselor for Boy Scouts and Venturing Archery Shooting Sports Elective.
