Starting an Explore Archery Program can be completed in five easy steps!


1. Find an Instructor

USA Archery requires that all instructors for the Explore Archery program be certified at minimum as:

  • A current USA Archery Level 1 Instructor (Range Pass Required) 
  • National Archery in the Schools Program BAI, BAIT or BAIT-S (Range Pass Required) 

Visit the USA Archery instructor locator to search for an instructor or learn how you can get certified as an archery instructor.


2. Register Your Explore Archery Program

There is no fee to register an Explore Archery Program


3. Purchase the Explore Archery Instructor's Guide and Achievement Awards

Visit the USA Archery Shop to purchase the Explore Archery Instructor’s Guide and Achievement Awards.


4. Find a Safe Place to Shoot

Basic archery ranges can be safely set up in a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces. If you do not have access to a permanent range, consider converting an existing recreational space to a temporary archery range. Visit the program resources page for more information on archery range development.


5. Get the Equipment

USA Archery sells beginner archery equipment kits that can accommodate archers of all sizes. Visit the USA Archery shop for equipment options.
