Goals/Mission Statement.

To create a learning environment to teach archery for leisure, competition, hunting or as a sport-related activity. Archery is a great activity for people of all ages from 7 to 70. No matter what their physical ability, archery is a learned skill that can be accomplished and master by almost anybody. It is a very peaceful, relaxing activity that focuses the mind and sharpens an individual's physical dexterity without any of the stigmatisms that other shooting sports have.

Coaching/Instruction Format.

All students must have their own equipment. I do not have equipment to rent. My name is John Siebert, a USA Archery Level 3 NTS Coach. If you want to know more about me follow this link. Typically instruction fits into one of several formats:

  • Individual Tune-Up Coaching

    One-on-one coaching that is customized to the individual student. Sessions are typically 1 hour long and can be held once a week or several times a week for 3-6 weeks. This is ideal for an archer just wanting to straighten out form issues or for a hunter that wants to execute a better shot. This type of coaching can be used for beginners to more advance shooters.
  • Small Group Coaching (1-4 people)

    This type of coaching is best for beginners just wanting to learn to shoot. The session can be several hours long, taking the student through the basics of archery so that they can become capable of shooting a bow.
  • Individual Structured Coaching

    This is one-on-one coaching meeting once or twice a week for 1 hour with a structured program to achieve the highest level of skill that an archer is capable of with the ultimate goal of the student entering competitions. This type of instruction has skill training homework/practice meant to build the archer's abilities. We will also spend a great of time on the mental game of shooting/competing and tournament etiquette/preparation.

Coaching costs.

Structured coaching is typically bi-weekly or weekly for an extended period of time. Group sessions can depend on what the group/organization wants to accomplish with their coaching.

What people are saying.

I am 14 years old and have been working with John for about a year now. John is very helpful and is very flexible with my school schedule. I started out just shooting Saturday morning leagues with John. John is now my target archery coach, and has helped me improve a great deal. I look forward to each coaching session, he always makes it fun. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to start or get better at archery.

I recently retired. After more than twenty years,I wanted to get back into bow hunting. I was fortunate to find John Siebert. He was very accessible, and willing to answer all my questions. Helping tune my bow and focusing on the basics. His training prepared me well for the hunt. I would highly recommend John and his training.

I shot leagues and other events for a number of years to just be with the guys. Never shoot too well until I had John coach me for six-weeks. He upped my game in no time so that I was shooting much better and consistently. Now shooting leagues and 3D archery on the weekends is more enjoyable and not frustrating. When I want to take it further, I'll be going back to John to get to the next level.

Our two daughters began working with John Siebert a little less than a year ago with a goal to become better at target archery. With John's years of knowledge and commitment to technique, and form, he has helped them reach an intermediate competitive level. John is extremely flexible to our schedules as a family, has a great deal of patience, and pays close attention to detail while keeping it fun, coaching both of our daughters. John also helped us with economical equipment suggestions and selection. It's been a pleasure working with John, and we would highly recommend him to any one looking to improve on their archery skill level.
