The new educational materials for Level I and II from USA Archery are excellent and we augment your learning experience by integrating the USA Archery Mobile Coach videos into the Level I and II courses. In Level II Courses, while covering the steps of the National Training System (NTS) for recurve and compound, we use coaching tools such as the Coach’s Eye movement analysis App to understand NTS from all angles. We use a variety off instructional techniques with the goal of catering to all learning styles.
