Jennifer Nichols: Three-Time Olympic Archer
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a world-class coach for both recurve and compound bows. Alexander’s techniques and training don’t just produce better shooters, they produce NATIONAL and WORLD CHAMPIONS! Training is available for Archers, Coaches, and Pro-Shops.
For 2014, PSE is offering a choice of two different schools at the PSE training center in Tucson, AZ to cover all aspects of archery. These schools are designed for all archers, coaches and pro shops. The first of these is a two-day shooters school for both compound and recurve archers. The second school is a one-day Technical school. For those that choose to participate in both schools, an instructor’s certification test will also be offered.
2015 Class Schedule
October 22nd – 24th
December 3rd – 5th
The shooters school will cover aspects that will be beneficial to both compound and recurve archers. The agenda will consist of the proper way to shoot a bow, back tension, bow tuning, what it takes to shoot high scores, and building tournament confidence. For compound we will also cover how to use your body for consistent shot execution, “Holding Steady”, shot control, the solution to “punching the trigger” and target panic, as well as how to properly shoot different types of release aids. For recurve archers, we will cover how to properly pull through the clicker and what it takes to be a 1300 shooter and much more. To top all of this off, your shot will also be analyzed using the latest video analysis software from Dartfish. Every archer will be video taped and then analyzed using this program. This allows us to catch all aspects of your shot allowing us to see mistakes in slow motion from multiple angles so that we can efficiently correct it.
The technical school will cover everything you need to know to be successful running your Pro Shop, archery classes, or to simply be a better self-reliant archer. We will teach how to properly build different bows from the parts up. This will include different cams, such as two cams, hybrid, one cam, and split limbs with PSE X-Technology. Also, how to properly set up the bow including how to make string serving, tying the string loops, installing peeps, string silencers and more. Once the bows are built properly we will cover the following: proper limb and cam alignment, wheel timing, how to find the center shot, arrow selection, super tuning and much more. As a bonus we will have one of our technicians on site to assist and answer all of your questions. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions to the engineering staff.
All participants will get certificates for the schools attended signed by PSE President Pete Shepley and Master Coach Alexander Kirillov.
