Archery coach recommendation?
« on: May 08, 2022, 05:52:57 PM »
Iím interested in getting some archery coaching somewhere in the Puget Sound region.
Goal is to have an experienced eye observe my form and offer up areas for improvement.
Anybody have any recommendations for me?
Been to the usaarchery.org site and they have a long list of coaches with level 1-3nts(?) but Iíd really prefer a ďpersonal ď referral.
Thanks!
Jim

Great northwest archery, Sean used to do some coaching.

Or see if you can get a lesson or two from Joel turner at shot IQ.

 :yeah: Joel just retired from the PD and was planning on moving to MT; so I'd reach out to him soon.

Are you just a hunter looking for tips to make sure your doing it right?  USAA is a lot of competitive Olympic archery focused. Sean Vincent up In Skagit county is a good shooter, nationally ranked and competed for the USA for the Worlds. several other really good shooters that could train you up depending on what part of the Sound you are in, a little more detail on location could be helpful
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

In reply, yes, main focus is hunting. Not a beginner. Killed a number of elk, but Iíd like to increase my confidence and more importantly, my accuracy beyond 40 yds which has always been my personal limit when hunting. Donít get me wrong, I donít see myself taking a first shot at 60, but I would like to stretch to 50.
Im happy to travel as far north as Bellingham or as far south as Chehalis.
I know of Joel Turner, but I suspect his private lesson rates will be a little higher than Iím looking to invest based on some of the group lesson pricing Iíve seen.
Im looking to approach this like I do with golf, find and utilize a good instructor. Practice those instructions a few weeks and meet with said instructor again and repeat up to 3-4 times over a period of a few months.
Thanks for previous and future replies!

Normally, if you're shooting well with good form at 40, I would say that to shoot well at 60 just means practicing to 60. There's a great bow shop in Lacey with nationally competitive shooters who give lessons - Archery World. I'm not sure the length of the range, but it's likely 30 at most and more likely, 20. I haven't been to the Lacey shop but I know the people.

I recommend giving Lance at Obsession Archery (Bothell) a call.  He helped me a lot with my form and introduced me to Shot IQ and Archery Strong.  Lance is a good resource.

I just talked with Chris at Archery World. They have 10, 20, and 30 yard targets.

Thanks all for the tips. In reply to your comment Pianoman, it was while I was shooting from 60 to a 100 yds that I started questioning my form! Iíll check out archery world along with the others.

So where are you in the sound area?  I might be close enough to get together if you want to shoot longer distances up to 90M I have a setup in my yard.

you're close to nockpoint in Montlake terrace.  if Bobby is teaching that would be my recommendation.  He has all the super slow motion 360 camera stuff to help you get a visual record of your form.  A check in like that every 30 - 60 days would be prefect for you
