I am interested in signing up for archery lessons. I was hoping to get some additional information about the lessons. From the site, I see that they are packages for 1,3,5 and 10 lessons. I was wondering if the multiple lessons have a sort of lesson plan, for example the first lesson deals with X and Lessons 2 and 3 deal with Y. Or if you have a recommendation of how many lessons a beginner like myself should start off with.
Hello!Yes, I do follow a lesson plan - although it does sometimes vary from client to client. eg. Some clients want to learn how to shoot longbow, shortbow, compound or have specific goals in mind, which changes how lessons unfold. Depending on wind conditions some lessons will also deal with how to adjust for the wind.
Below is a typical lesson plan.
- Long Distance Shooting, either Field Archery or at 90 feet (possibly further depending on the relative skill of the student).
- Adjusting for Wind at Longer Distances. 90 feet up to 300 feet.
- Perfecting Form / Getting rid of any remaining bad habits, how to recognize bad habits.
- Shooting at Moving Targets / How to Gap Shoot.
- Precision Marksmanship at 60 feet - requires the student to have developed good form first.
- Instinctive Archery - but only if the student requests to learn that style.
- How to shoot while Kneeling + Alternative Stances.
- Varying Distances, Adjusting Aim based on minor Distance changes.
- 1 lesson for people who want to just try archery.
- 3 lessons for people who are thinking about getting their own equipment.
- 5 lessons for people who definitely want to get into archery, and possibly are already shopping for equipment.
- 10 lessons for people who want to get better at archery in a hurry and are definitely planning to purchase equipment.
