Rod Garrison has been named as a new Georgia S3DA Regional Coordinator. As a Regional Coordinator, Rod will oversee the development and operations of S3DA within the western region, including educating and recruiting parties interested in forming new S3DA clubs and teams, coordinating with the S3DA Georgia State Coordinator, Jake Martin, and when possible attending and assisting with National S3DA events. Rod stated that he looks forward to helping in the development and growth of Scholastic 3-D Archery in west Georgia.
Rod has had an interest in archery since he was first introduced to the sport in elementary school. Over the past seven years, his love for the sport has evolved. Rod currently teaches, coaches and advocates for the sport of archery in Coweta County, Georgia. Rod states, “My wife and I saw a need for archery in our area and we became certified BAI instructors under the Georgia DNR. We began a NASP team for homeschooled children and have since grown into a competitive team winning two (2) state titles in 2019, as well as competing in national and world events.”
Rod, and his wife, currently hold USA Archery Level 2 certifications, as well as S3DA Basic & Advanced Instructor certification. Rod will be starting his own S3DA team in Coweta County called the West Georgia Outlaws.
