S3DA News & Tournament Results
In reaction to the continued growth of their youth archery program, Scholastic 3D Archery has named Scott Bennett as the new S3DA Louisiana State Coordinator.

Scott will also recruit and hire Regional Coordinators to oversee and manage these individual regions.

All of these features will come at no cost to the clubs and will help keep them at the forefront of archery tournament technology.”…..
