Coach Steve's Philosophy:

As an archery coach, I will teach anyone who wants to learn.

I will do my best to ensure a positive and engaging learning environment for my archers.

I encourage. A lot.

There are little successes in each lesson, leading up to occasional huge successes. I want my archers to look forward to their lessons, and to look forward to practicing archery in general.

My archers’ goals are my own; I will expose my archers to various aspects of archery in enough detail for them to make sound decisions, and then let them choose their own path.

I also recognize that archers’ goals may change over time.

I will continue to learn and grow as an archer and as a coach. If I don’t know the answer, I will find out. I will use any and all appropriate teaching techniques to ensure that my coaching and my attitude provide value and have a positive impact on my archers’ performance. I will tailor my coaching approach to my archers’ needs to the extent possible.

I will treat my archers, their families, and my fellow coaches professionally and with respect. Each person is an individual with concerns, aspirations, challenges, and experiences.

I recognize that it’s not about me. It’s about my archers and their successes that I have the opportunity to affect. When they succeed, then I have succeeded.

Coach Ahnika's Philosophy:
Why do I coach?

• To share my love of archery.

• To experience the joy and challenge of assisting a person on their mental and physical journey of learning a skill, starting from wherever they are in the process.

• To continue to grow and learn from other people (students & coaches) and to improve my skills as an instructor and archer.

Coach Brandon's Philosophy: 

I want to create an environment where archers feel comfortable making mistakes. I would like to instill my students with the same love and enjoyment of the sport that I have. I will teach anyone who wants to learn to the best of my ability. I believe that archery is for everyone, it’s just a matter of meeting the right people. To quote an author I really like, “Do your best until you know better. Then, do better."
