Course Reviews

"I am now fully confident in conducting fun, safe, and valuable archery classes for youngsters and adults."

  • "In taking the USA Archery Level 1 and Level 2 instructor certification courses from Coach Racae, I am now fully confident in conducting fun, safe, and valuable archery classes for youngsters and adults. Coach Racae’s instruction was thorough, concise, and well paced. Not only did I learn the skills required to instruct archery, I also became a better shooter in order to properly demonstrate the shot process steps to students. I would highly recommend taking these courses from Coach Racae."

"It was such a pleasure taking this course from Coach Racae"

  • "When I saw the virtual training, I immediately signed up. It was such a pleasure taking this course from Coach Racae and I can truly see what makes her an amazing coach. I learned so much from her in such a short time and was sad to see the course end."
  • - Sher B. (UT)

"Even as someone who went through the JOAD program, I found there to be a lot of valuable information."

  • "Just wanted to write to you and let you know how much I enjoyed the Level 2 course that I just completed. Even as someone who went through the JOAD program, I found there to be a lot of valuable information. I appreciated the flexibility in the course whereby you covered all of the material in the book, but also allowed more time on subjects that weren't as familiar to me."

"Coach clearly has a gift for teaching and working with archers and it shows in her positive attitude and encouragement through the course."

  • "I had the privilege of having Coach Racae as my virtual instructor for the USA Archery Level 2 Instructor Certification course and she did an AMAZING job! She was patient, answered all of my questions, was flexible with time offerings, and really made me feel relaxed and capable, despite not being right beside me. Coach clearly has a gift for teaching and working with archers and it shows in her positive attitude and encouragement through the course. I am so happy that I was able to meet and learn from her - anyone who uses her as their instructor will be pleased and increase in confidence."

"Coach Racae did an excellent job reviewing the material in the book"

  • "Coach Racae did an excellent job reviewing the material in the book and expanding on the information when I had questions in order to explain it in a different way or to put it in context. I am happy with the level of instruction, and I cannot think of anything that could have been better, short of taking the class in person."

"There is a 100% guarantee that you will learn from Coach Racae."

  • "My experience with Coach Racae has renewed my love for the sport and for coaching. That is what I am most grateful to her for. I am certain that the understanding I gained from Coach Racae's perspective on the basics will make me a better instructor and a better trainer. Training with Coach Racae has opened my eyes to new possibilities for our young archers and the things I can share to help them develop their skills along the way. The material presented in the training manuals is top-notch but they only contain information. Coach Racae's passion and enthusiasm, accompanied by her experience and knowledge brought the information to life. It is apparent that she loves to teach and I learned. I needed Coach Racae's perspective and insight to rekindle my spirit. There is a 100% guarantee that you will learn from Coach Racae. Her experience with archery is far different from what we have in my area and her guidance through this process is going to help me and our club offer a much more enjoyable and diverse experience for the youth and families we work with. Quality training from a quality trainer inspires and motivates. The online training format created a terrific opportunity for me, and Coach Racae Meyer helped me make the most of it."
