USA Archery Level 1 Instructor Training

USA Archery Level 1 Instructor Training offered to Scout Leaders

The Alamo Area Council Shooting Sports Committee is pleased to offer a USA Archery (formerly National Archery Association) Level 1 (formerly Basic) Instructor Certification Course for adults who are CURRENTLY REGISTERED BSA MEMBERS. This is a full day course with a 50 question written exam and pre-shoot safety briefing that you must pass in order to obtain the certification.  Those who successfully complete this instructor course will be able to:
  • Run the Scouts archery range at Bear Creek or any BSA archery range;
  • Run a Cub Scout archery range at the District or Council level;
  • Teach the 4-hour BSA Cub Scout Archery Range Officer course, certifying other adult Scouters to run a Cub Scout archery range at the District or Council level;
  • Counsel archery merit badge for Scouts BSA; and
  • Qualify to serve on a National Scout Jamboree Archery Staff  (Jamboree staff application is a separate and unrelated process.  For more information about applying for jamboree staff, please reach out to our International Scouting Committee.)      
This is an instructor course, not a basic skills course. You should have some knowledge and experience in archery (ideally as a Cub Scout Range Officer) prior to taking this course.  However, this is also a good course to take to learn the essentials to improve your archery skills.  Certification is valid for three years, but may be renewed based on teaching experience without having to retake the class or re-pass the exam.  You'll learn how to set up and operate a safe short-term archery range or archery program, how to teach new archers, how to maintain your equipment, and learn common shooting errors and correction which may also help your own skills.  You'll also learn the BSA archery range rules and safety regulations, and the specific requirements and limitations imposed on archery events by BSA.
