UW-Eau Claire to offer archery instructor workshops to campus, community membersNovember 12, 2012
A Basic Archery Instructor Workshop will be offered from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Dec. 1 at the university's Environmental Education Center.
Daniel Langlois, assistant director of recreation and sport facilities, said the class is designed for people who envision themselves teaching archery in schools, summer camps, YMCAs, 4-H clubs or even to their family members.
"The certification is a great addition to any teacher certification credentials," Langlois said. "You don't have to be highly experienced and all the necessary equipment is provided."
The class is open to students, faculty, staff and the public. After completing the course, participants will receive their archery teaching certification.
Bobbi Marion, regional coordinator for the National Archery in the Schools Program in the northwest section of Wisconsin, will teach the class. Marion, who has participated in the sport of archery for the past 15 years, said the class covers the basics of shooting archery and equipment, as well as the objectives of NASP.
"The class is designed to teach adults to teach basic archery to youth in a fun, safe and successful environment," Marion said.
The cost for the Basic Archery Instructor Workshop is $75 per person, which includes training materials and instructional DVDs.
In addition to the Basic Archery Instructor Workshop, a Basic Archery Instructor/Basic Archery Instructor Trainer refresher class is planned for Nov. 30. Preregistration for the BAIT class ends Nov. 15, and at least 10 people must sign up for the class to be offered. The cost for the BAIT class is $30 per person, with half of the fee returned to class participants.
