Leadership

There are a number of leadership opportunities within Trojan Archery:

  • Elected Positions
  • Appointed Positions
  • Instructors
  • Volunteers

Elected Positions – The President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Team Captain(s) and Director of Education positions are elected each year in March for the following academic year. These generally need more experience from within the club, or substantial leadership experience elsewhere, and may have prerequisites. Elected individuals serve from the top down, managing paperwork, organizing schedules and deadlines, fundraising, and delegating to teams.

Appointed Positions – Other positions are appointed by the elected Executive Board. These are still considerable titles, but tend to require fewer hours. Appointed Officers, such as the Social Chair, can lead Committees, but can also operate independently, such as the Armorer.  Appointed positions can be taken up by the Executive Board members when necessary. Positions can also be combined or newly created as needed by the club.

Instruction – Club members also have the opportunity to gain instructor certifications through the nationally recognized USA Archery program. Instructors are the bread and butter of the club, and all operations would cease without them! Only certified instructors are allowed to operate and manage an active range – we would not be able to hold practice without our wonderful instructors. Only certified instructors are allowed to teach the sport to ensure all archers are shooting safely, both for their own physical health and the safety of others on the range. Any archer interested in learning more and willing to either run the range (range rules, whistle calls) or teach basic technique is encouraged to sign up for the subsidized class, which it typically held twice a year. WE NEED YOU! 

Peer-to-Peer Instruction – While we stress learning directly from our Instructors and Coaches, if you and fellow archers are working on similar goals during a practice, you can lead each other through peer-to-peer instruction. While one archer shoots, a peer can watch and spot technique that can be improved, and take pictures and video which are hugely helpful to have on hand to review, and to allow Instructors and Coaches to review. Peer-to-peer instruction is extremely valuable because it is challenging for our Instructors and Coaches to focus on every archer. It is even more valuable if your peers are certified. (Instructors like to shoot, too!)

Volunteers – Even if you aren’t able to serve consistently in a position, any amount of help is valued, whether it is coming early to help set up the range, make supply runs, or cheer on club and team members, any amount of help is appreciated. We will sometimes ask for volunteers for a specific event, or you can reach out to us with an idea. Want to lead a craft at the start of practice to make banners? Want to schedule study days with your fellow members? Want to lead a stretch circle? These are all great opportunities to lead. Just contact an officer and let us know what you’re planning!
