ENROLLMENT IS ON A FIRST-RECEIVED AND PAID BASIS.This enrollment form must be completed and your payment received in order for you to be enrolled and a place reserved for you.You can enroll 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 enroll 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, AND and the attendance requirements below must be met at each level for you to remain in the Progressive Program.)
MINIMUM ENROLLMENT:Classes will be held only if there are 3 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 can agree to coach the class even if it doesn't make the minimum enrollment.
HOW DO I ADVANCE?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.
You'll be trained in Indoor 4 at 18m until you score 250 pts and master most NTS* Shot Cycle positions. You'll then be in Indoor 5. At this point you'll need to consider whether you want to become a competitive archer or remain recreational.
If you decide to train for competition, you can apply to Coach Alex's Competitive Archery Program (CAP). After you complete the Draft Tournament held annually in September with a minimum qualifying score (MQS) of 240pts at 18m, he will conduct an evaluation with you, expect you to be able to explain to him and shoot the NTS method, and dedicate at least 10 hours a week to archery.
Alternatively, if you are in the Recreational or Progressive Programs, you will continue to work on your NTS form, mental management, and strength to eventually graduate into Indoor 6 by shooting 270 pts at 18m, into Indoor 7 by shooting 280 pts., and then Indoor 8 by shooting 290 pts. Under the conditions below, you'll SHOOT FREE at Archery Training Center forever! Indoor 7 and Indoor 8 are the levels that are usually occupied by state and national champions!
You can also opt to become a USA Archery Level 1 NTS Instructor when you turn 15 years old, and a Level 2 when you are 18 years old, which bring additional privileges and responsibilities.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE "RECREATIONAL" AND "PROGRESSIVE" PROGRAMS?
In order to improve in archery, archers need to practice increasingly more as they advance. All archers can advance indoors through the Bronze, Silver, and Gold JOAD Olympian levels awarded by USA Archery. We will also award USA Gold Star Pins when you shoot six 10s in a row at 18m!
RECREATIONAL PROGRAM: There are NO ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS for Recreational archers. All Indoor 2 archers are considered recreational. At any point in the semester, archers at or above Indoor 3 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 program, which is for archers in Indoor 3 and above, sets time/attendance requirements in the range to help fast-track archers into the Competitive Archery Program (CAP). Progressive archers must continuously meet the time/attendance requirements to remain in the Progressive Program. Those who fall short of the weekly time/attendance requirements will automatically be considered Recreational, and Recreational class fees will apply. Progressive archers will be expected to participate in tournaments in Indoor 4 - just for the experience and to have fun! They will also receive special tags showing each week that they meet the time requirements. The tags will be issued on Saturdays for the preceding week.
Progressive archers will be eligible for recommendation to USA Archery Level 4 NTS* and JDT* Coach Alex Meyer's Competitive Archery Program (CAP), which 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.

(You need to be at least 15 years old and a CAP archer.)
PERSONAL COACH ASSIGNMENTS:To more carefully and appropriately structure your training, you will be under the guidance of an Archery Training Center PERSONAL COACH of your choice. Your Personal Coach will be responsible for your private lessons, creating a training program with you, and informing you and the other coaches/instructors what you need to work on each week, so that even when you are in a class coached by another coach there will be close coordination and consistency among the coaches.

REFUNDS, CREDITS, and SUBSTITUTIONS:There are no refunds or credits for paid days missed during the semester, except in the case of injury, long-term illness, unforeseen move out of the Austin area, being expelled for a safety violation 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 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 any refunds issued.
