I’m a BAI – Basic Archery Instructor 🏹
I went to archery training through the NASP- National Archery in the Schools.
The class was from 8:30 in the morning and ended at 5:00- after some performance evaluations and a written test!
I have left eye dominance so I had to use a left handed bow. It was awkward at first – my aim was off and I shot a hole through their plastic banner! I guess I’ll be remembered forever LOL!
I improved, never hit the bullseye but got close enough! I learned how to run a range and teach a class of students how to properly and safely use the equipment!
I can’t wait to start a homeschool archery club 🏹 with my certificate!
Unfortunately, even though I took the class and passed, I don’t qualify for the grant because I don’t teach at a “real” school. Teachers from an established school (public or private) can get the grant and use it for an after school club, but not homeschoolers- even if they are part of an established co-op. The MDC did say we could borrow equipment until we get funding- which will be difficult but not impossible since I can try to get other grants through different organizations!
