Southern National Coordinator, Jeremy Blackmon
Phone: (850) 860-0917
Jeremy Blackmon was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, where he still lives today. He became interested in hunting at an early age by being around his dad and grandfather but really caught the archery bug at the age of 8 when he spent the first week of archery season camping with his grandfather.
Blackmon has spent most of his adult life in the archery industry, working in various roles from pro shops to manufacturing since 1990. The last few years he has worked as a product development consultant for companies within the archery industry. However, in 2017, Jeremy and his wife Kathy decided that it was time to really get back to what they loved about the archery industry that has been such an important part of Jeremy’s life, so they started Omega Archery Products, a company that creates high-end accessories such as carbon stabilizers.
Jeremy and Kathy have two married daughters, a son, and a grandson. They are active in various archery programs including ASA (Archery Shooters Association) and BHA (Bow Hunters of Alabama) and are very excited about the opportunity to become more involved with the S3DA program in the Southern states.
Northern National Coordinator,
Phone: (217) 341-7601
Kim Rigney currently resides in Springfield, Illinois. She got involved in hunting and archery in her twenties. Kim met her husband Gary at the local archery shop while sighting in her hunting bow and married him in that same shop 6 months later.
Rigney became a certified USA Archery Instructor in 2013, attended the National Coach’s Symposium, as well as worked with the MASP (Military Adapted Sports Program) serving as a Compound Coach for the SOCOM (Special Operations Command) Team for the Warrior Games, established in 2010 to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, ill and injured service members and expose them to adaptive sports. She attended one of the very first S3DA Basic Training classes in Monroe, LA in 2013 and started RSA (Rigney’s School of Archery) S3DA club shortly thereafter. Rigney felt the chance to become an S3DA club was very valuable because it was one of the programs whose rules were the easiest to decipher, affordable for students and coaches, offered insurance benefits and the ability to operate as a club outside of a specific school.
