We started coaching in 1995 in a bowhunting range in North Austin. There was no uniform, recognized way to shoot. We all just tried our best to gain and impart knowledge with guidance from local archers and range owners. There were almost no other Olympic target archers in Austin or the surrounding area. That's when we started thinking about our own archery training center, so anyone who wanted to improve in Olympic target archery or become a competitive archer could receive continuous qualified coaching and training using a consistent method.
In 2006, the U.S. hired Coach KiSik Lee to be the United States National Head Coach. He developed a biomechanically efficient method of shooting, now called the National Training System (NTS), and began introducing it to higher level American coaches by inviting them to learn it out at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. In 2008, we decided to coach this method. We believe it to be the most scientifically researched method available for shot consistency and accuracy, physical and mental strength.
