HOW DO I ADVANCE?You'll be trained in Indoor 2 at 9m until you score 240 pts and master certain NTS* Shot Cycle positions, then you'll move back to 13.5m in Indoor 3A until you score 240 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 at any time after you reach Indoor 3A at 13.5m (see below under Progressive Program). Please note that mastering NTS positions relevant to each level will be required to advance to the next level. Advancement will no longer be based on scores alone.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE "RECREATIONAL" AND "PROGRESSIVE" PROGRAMS?
In order to improve in archery, archers need to practice more as they advance. All archers who join USA Archery can advance indoors through the Bronze, Silver, and Gold JOAD Olympian levels awarded by USA Archery.
RECREATIONAL PROGRAM: There are no attendance requirements for our regular Recreational archers, however AISD OCPE students are required to attend 5 hours/week. All Indoor 2 archers at 9m are considered recreational. At any point in the semester, archers at or above Indoor 3A (13.5m) can change to the PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM by signing up for it, and committing to the required hours of practice in the range.
PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM: This semester is the FIFTH semester of this new program, which is for archers in Indoor 3A (13.5m) and above. It sets time/attendance requirements in the range to help fast-track archers into the Competitive Archery Program (CAP) with Coach Alex. Progressive archers must continuously meet the time/attendance requirements to remain in the Progressive Program. AISD OCPE students enter at 5 hrs/wk, but must earn the Archery Training Center's requirements at 9m and 13.5m before progressing to Indoor 3B at 18m. Progressive archers will participate in tournaments in Indoor 4 - just for experience and fun! - and will also receive special "Progressive" tags rewarding them each week that they meet the time requirements.
The Progressive Program min. time/attendance weekly requirements are:4 hrs/wk - Indoor 3A at 13.5m - Time to make an appointment with us to order your own bow !5 hrs/wk - Indoor 3B at 18m (up to 200 pts. twice) 6 hrs/wk - Indoor 4 at 18m (201-250 pts.) 8 hrs/wk - Indoor 5 at 18m (251-270 pts.) - Time to try out for CAP in September each year !10 hrs/wk - Indoor 6 at 18m (271-290 pts.)
Progressive archers will be eligible for recommendation to USA Archery Level 4 NTS* and JDT* Coach Alex Meyer's Competitive Archery Program (CAP). The CAP Program is for those who want to be competitive archers and shoot in both indoor and outdoor tournaments, who have shot at least 250 pts. at 18m, have a MQS (minimum qualifying score) of 240 pts. at 18m, know and can shoot the NTS Method, compete in the Draft CAP Tournament annually in Sept./Oct., and have at least 10 hrs/wk to dedicate to archery.
