REGISTRATION IS ON A FIRST-RECEIVED AND PAID BASIS.
This registration form must be completed and your payment received in order for you to be registered and a place reserved for you. You can register at any time during the semester for as many or as few classes as you like as long as there are places open. So, for example, you can register for the entire semester, each month, or sprinkle the days throughout the semester depending on your schedule. (Please bear in mind, however, you'll progress faster with regular attendance.)
Classes will be held only if there are 5 or more archers enrolled in the class.
If the class does not make this minimum enrollment requirement, you will be notified at least one week in advance, so you can reschedule. The instructor/coach at his/her discretion may decide to coach the class even if it doesn't make the minimum enrollment.
ATTENDANCE RECOMMENDATIONS (in order to improve and progress over time):
INDOOR 2 at 9m : 2 hrs/wk
INDOOR 3A at 13.5m : 3-4 hrs/wk
INDOOR 3B at 18m : 4-5 hrs/wk
INDOOR 4 at 18m : 6 hrs/wk
INDOOR 5 at 18m: 8 hrs/wk
HOW DO I ADVANCE?
You'll be trained in Indoor 2 at 9m until you score 230 pts and master certain NTS* Shot Cycle positions, then you'll move back to 13.5m in Indoor 3A until you score 230 pts and master more NTS Shot Cycle positions, and then to 18m in Indoor 3B until you score 200 pts. twice and master more NTS Shot Cycle positions. After that you'll be in Indoor 4: Advanced.! You can also decide to be in the Progressive Program (see PROGRESSIVE enrollment form), which requires a minimum of 4-8 hrs per week practice in group classes in the indoor range.
We provide all equipment necessary indefinitely at no extra charge. (Recurve bow, 3 arrows, armguard, finger tab, target)
When you are ready to order your own equipment, we pace and specify what you need and help you order it, so you buy the correct equipment for your strength and experience. Generally, we do not recommend anyone buys equipment before they have been with us for at least 8 hours.
All fees are payable in advance of the class to secure your place in the class.
$20 / class
+ Enrollment fee: $20 (always due once per semester)
REFUNDS, CREDITS, and SUBSTITUTIONS:
There are no refunds or credits for paid days missed JAN 7 - MAY 28, 2017, except in the case of injury, long-term illness, unforeseen move out of the Austin area, expulsion due to safety violations or if we cancel a class. If, however, you let us know that you will miss a class, you can substitute another class as long as there are places left in that class during the SPRING 2017 semester.
In the case of physical injury or long-term illness, we require a doctor's note saying the archer is unable to practice archery, and then a doctor's note saying the archer is fit to return to archery, before the archer will be allowed back in class or a refund/credit issued.
HOW MUCH DO I OWE?
Multiply the number of classes x $20/class.
Add the $20 semester enrollment fee.
HOW DO I PAY IN ADVANCE?
We accept checks or credit cards (+4%) in person at the indoor range.
