USA Archery Level I Training, May 14, 2022

The course is aimed at leaders (18 and older) who want to teach the Archery merit badge, supervise a range at camp or Cub Day camp, or run a quality archery program for troops or crews. The course is being sponsored by Chickasaw Council’s Shooting Sports Committee, Boy Scouts of America. Students who complete the online course, pass a written test and practical exam will receive the Level I Archery Instructor certification which is valid for three years and may be renewed.

Instructor candidates will learn to operate a safe yet fun archery range. The course will cover range setup and safety, proper equipment, aspects of good shooting form, and methods of teaching. Previous archery experience is not required. You can download a P.D.F. flyer here, which contains the same information as below.
