How To Become an S3DA Coach

Scholastic 3-D Archery – Changing archery one smile at a time

Anyone looking to help the growth of our sport should consider becoming an S3DA instructor by taking their instructor course. S3DA has expanded their program to also offer NFAA Indoor and Outdoor target competition formats and has received the support of the Pope & Young Club, the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund and many of our own industry leaders.

Start-up equipment kits are available for public and private schools, government agencies and non-profit organizations through Scholastic 3-D Archery. The equipment kits may be purchased at a reduced price thanks to the support and generosity of several archery manufacturers and private donors.

Please note that the equipment purchased through this program is to be used only by the acquiring organization. It is not to be resold, or purchased for the benefit of individuals.
