The USA Archery Level 3-NTS Coach Certification Course is ideal for those coaches transitioning from group instruction to more individual athlete development. Students in the Level 3-NTS Course will be introduced to coaching philosophy, event preparation, mental skills, training cycles and plans, equipment tuning, and receive advanced instruction on the National Training System (NTS) for Recurve and Compound.
The Level 3-NTS Course at Sattva Center for Archery Training is taught by Level IV Coach Kyle Bissell. Coach Kyle is dedicated to coaching the very latest understanding of the National Training System. In order to remain current in NTS, Coach Kyle has hosted US National Head Coach Kisik Lee at Sattva every year since receiving his Level IV Certification in Chula Vista. Coach Kyle provides a deep understanding of NTS, and strives to challenge you to stretch your coaching abilities in ways that will make you a strong Level IV coach candidate. He works hard to guide your proficiency in the mental and physical components of NTS. If you are new to NTS, Coach Kyle offers an additional four hour in-depth NTS clinic the day before the Level 3-NTS course.
Certified Level 3-NTS coaches can be the lead Coach for JOAD/AAAP, Explore Archery, or Collegiate Archery Club programs through USA Archery. Level 3-NTS Coaches can also apply to be certified Level 2 Instructor Trainers.
