Archery Instructor Course:
Common Ground Center is excited to work with USA Archery and archery instructor Ron Kumetz to offer both a Level 1 and Level 2 archery instructor course. Ron Kumetz is a National Archery Association Level 3 Coach. He trained at the US Olympic Center in Chula Vista, California.
Individuals looking to be certified as an instructor will find the Level 1 training to be informative and practical, preparing you to run a beginner's archery program at a camp, recreation department, school, or other organization. The Level 2 program includes the Level 1 training and adds the ability to certify others as Level 1 instructors.
The Level 1 course takes place on Saturday, June 4th, 9:00am-5:00pm
The Level 2 course includes the course on Saturday plus Sunday June 5th, 9:00am-5:00pm
