NTS Seminar

Amherst Archery offers an additional NTS Seminar on the Thursday leading into the Level III Course.  Attendance is not mandatory.  We do recommend you strongly consider attending the NTS seminar if advanced training in NTS is new to you.  Attending the seminar will increase your exposure to NTS allowing you to absorb more during the actual Level III Course and ultimately allow you to walk away from the entire experience with greater knowledge and skill.  NTS Seminars are held from 1:00-6:00PM on the Thursday prior to the start of every Level III Course at Amherst Archery.  Additional fee required.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I came to this course with years of experience of shooting and instructing as a Level 2 coach. I left this course with an unprecedented amount of new information and techniques. Coach Kyle is an amazing coach and has a vast knowledge to draw from. The amount of information that is presented in this course gives me the confidence and strengths to be the best coach I can be for my archers. Coach Kyle presents it in a way that it is easily understood and remembered, plus offered new ways to present this information for many different scenarios.

    There is also a pre-course on the NTS system that I highly recommend. If you have limited knowledge on the NTS system or need to increase your own knowledge I highly recommend taking it. It helped me understand the NTS system even more so during the Level 3 course so I was able to grab the information that was presented much easier than if I had not taken it.

    Also Kyle, and Sarah Rose made myself and all the students feel very welcomed at Amherst Archery Academy. They have built an Archery Academy that is first rate. The whole team here is warm and welcoming.

    I highly recommend this course from and Amherst Archery Academy.
