|To all leaders of Arizona Archery Programs. |
USAA Junior Dream Team (JDT) Program Invitation:
The JDT is open to junior RECURVE archers between the ages of 12-13 and around 18 (ends at high school graduation). It is a high level archery training program led by US National Head Coach KiSik Lee. Local archers who have in the past, or who continue to participate in this program include Kiley Larrick, Nathan Yamaguchi, Karissa Yamaguchi, and Andrew Mateo. Coach Mel Nichols and Gary Yamaguchi participate as coaches in the program. All participants must agree to learn the National Training System (NTS), and to shoot at tournaments using the NTS system. Successful applicants will attend at least two week-long training camps at one of the Olympic Training Centers per year, as well as agree to document their training on a weekly basis, serve as representatives of USA Archery and the United States, and to compete in national ranking events. Typically, JDT archers place at or near the top of youth archery events in the USA, and many go on to become Resident Athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista CA, south of San Diego.
For 2012, the JDT Selection Camp will be held at the Chula Vista OTC from November 29th to December 2nd. Anyone who can meet the qualifications for the camp and who is interested in trying out for the team, please ask them to submit their application as soon as possible. Anyone who has questions can address them to Gary Yamaguchi at firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for submissions is September 24th, 2012.

The Park is on the NW corner of Ocotillo and McQueen. Class fee is $75 includes book, test, certification.|
A Level 1 Instructor is most closely associated with a "grassroots" program that is short-term in scope and focused on introducing basic archery skills to beginners. Such programs would include: camps, Scouting, 4-H, and Parks and Recreation. This class is great for JOAD Archers 15 years or older and Parents who want to help in club activities.
To register email Sandra at email@example.com. Note: Must be 15 years old to be certified, if you will be 15 soon you can take class and wait to send it into USA Archery. Any Level 1 Instructor who wants individual insurance coverage will need to become a member of USA Archery and complete a background check (you must be 18 years old to be covered).
|A level 2 Instructor Certification Class will be held on August 18 & 19th. |
A Level 2 Instructor works with a more established archery program such as J.O.A.D, A.S.A.P., college clubs and local clubs with a strong beginner component. Level 2 Instructors are also certified to teach Level 1 courses.
