Level I Archery Instructor Training

Aimed at leaders (18 and older) who want to teach Scouts BSA’s Archery Merit Badge, supervise a range at camp or Cub Scout Day Camp, or run a quality archery program for Scouts BSA Troops or Venturing Crews.

Students who complete the course and pass a written test will receive the Level I Archery Instructor certification (Basic Instructor) valid for three years.

Instructor candidates will learn to operate a safe yet fun archery range. The course will cover range setup and safety, proper equipment, aspects of good shooting form, and methods of teaching.

Previous archery experience is not required but is helpful. You do not need to bring your own bow as equipment will be supplied.
