Team USA Archery head coach teaches class at Georgia Southern Shooting Sports Education Center
The USA Olympic Archery Team’s head coach, Kisik Lee, recently taught a Level 4 National Training System certified archery course at the Shooting Sports Education Center (SSEC) on the Georgia Southern Statesboro Campus. Lee’s course was one of only two classes per year, and it was the first of its kind held outside of the USA Archery facility in Chula Vista, California.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase our high-caliber facility to Coach Lee and other aspiring coaches,” said Matt Horst, SSEC director. “We are extremely proud to host this course which brings 40 archery coaches from across the country to see what Georgia Southern has to offer the archery community. It is a great example of how we are able to contribute to the region’s economic impact.”
The SSEC aims to provide a hub for the shooting sports in Southeast Georgia. Through instructional programs, training classes, recreation, competition, and special events, it serves a variety of individuals including youth, adults, students, law enforcement, hunters, first-time shooters, elite athletes and all groups interested in participating and learning more about firearms and archery.
