Hi, all Texas archers:


Texas routinely provides excellence to the USA Archery movement.   We have a history of national and world competitors that call Texas home.  Many of the members of past junior dream teams are Texans, and many more will be as well.

There are a number of High Performance coaches from Texas, all certified by Kisk Lee and the USA Archery training system.  Unfortunately, many Texas archers have not had the benefit of coaching by HP coaches.

TO FIX THIS:  There will be a series of short shot clinics  (try saying that 5 times real fast) held during the SENIOR tournament for *ANY* archers wishing to learn how to be a BEST archer.

Rome is not built in a day.   But in just a few minutes, one of our HP coaches can watch you shoot and draw conclusions about how to improve your shot cycle and methods so that you can be a better, happier, and more successful archer!

Particularly, but not only for the kids:   Just a quick note and an invitation for your consideration.  Many of you already have High Performance coaches at your JOAD, and are on the path to being BEST archers.   However, if you do not have a HP coach then I wish to offer an opportunity for you to get some experience in the BEST method, by participating in a mini-clinic during the weekend during the senior tournament at UT.

We will work with any archer (and parent/coach) that is interested in reviewing form and shot technique, and make some recommendations on what you and your coach might want to focus on in order to have more success in archery.

The cost would be a $10 donation to the UT Archery club, and the offer is contingent on your current coach granting permission to participate in the clinic. (this permission is required!!!)  It would be best if she/he were there also, but it is not necessary.  Parents are welcome as well.   I will probably limit it to no more than 5 archer per HP coach at any given time.   The archer MUST be done with alll shooting in the tournament in order to participate - it would not make sense to participate in a clinic just before competing!

If you are interested in this, email me back and I will coordinate a time with you.   The clinic will be in one of the side rooms of the gym, right near the range.  The faculty will include (at least)  me, Ron Carmichael, as well as Tom Barker.  Paralympian medalist Lindsey Carmichael will also be there to help.   All other HP coaches in the state are welcome to attend and assist.

If you don't enter by the deadline you may not get a spot! Your check will be HELD until after the deadline for two purposes. Should you need to cancel simply notify us and we will shred the check. More importantly by holding the check till after the deadline the funds remain in your bank till then so there is no reason NOT to register and pay for your spot now!
This online submission enables the Tournament Director to plan on your attendance, order trophies, etc... and helps you get a reserved slot in the event. Space is limited and later registrations MAY not be accepted if all slots fill up. Please check the CURRENTLY REGISTERED page before registering, to verify that the time you want still has openings. If you send a registration for a time that is already up to 40 then you will be notified by email so you can select another time. The CURRENTLY REGISTERED page is not always 100% realtime, so there may be a small chance of this. Reserved slots are not guaranteed until the check has been received and your email confirmation has been sent to you.

If no more than 20 archers sign up for any given time, that line will be shot as a SINGLE LINE.

Instructions: To secure your desired shooting times, pre-register via email by filling in the required fields below and then clicking on the SUBMIT button. You will then be emailed a copy of the entry information, and the tournament director will send you a reply confirming your registration after it has been reviewed. YOU SHOULD PRINT THE SCREEN THAT APPEARS AFTER YOU PRESS THE SUBMIT BUTTON. Make 2 copies if you want one for your files and mail one copy with your registration fee check.
You must mail the registration fee (check or money order) together with the form, postmarked by the deadline to avoid a $15 per event late fee and to complete the registration. If you forget to print it before sending, simply "go 'back' using right-click on the mouse. Email registration will help us plan the tournament. (send one copy, keep one copy)
