Vanessa & Friends
I am a National Coaching Certified Program (NCCP) archery instructor with 5 years of experience. From traditional archery to Olympic recurve and compound shooting, I am experienced in coaching from complete novices to experienced archers. Archery can be intimidating for beginners due to the cost of equipment & safety requirements. My mission is to lower the barriers to entry for this sport and provide travelers such as yourself an experience that might not be available to you back home. I am supported by a family of talented folks who will be helping me with co hosting this experience.
- Recurve bows ( left or right handed, various lengths and pull-weights) - Quiver - Carbon fiber arrows - Armguard - Gloves
The experience will take place indoors at a venue that is equipped with AC, bathrooms, lockers & Wi-Fi. The facility is conveniently located in the trendy Mile-End area with many great pubs and restaurants nearby, and a Metro station within walking distance.
This experience is tailored to everyone's physical aptitudes. NCCP-certified archery instructors are very experienced in working with beginner archers. So please don't be shy :)
