Tune-Up Coaching • Youth Coaching • Adult Coaching
All students must have their own equipment. I do not have equipment to rent. Typically instruction fits into one of several formats:
Individual Tune-Up Coaching
One-on-one coaching that is customized to the individual student. Sessions are typically 1.5 hours long and can be held once a week or several times a week for 3-6 weeks. This is ideal for an archer just wanting to straighten out form issues or a hunter just want to be a better shot. This type of coaching can be used for beginners to more advance shooters.
Small Group Coaching (1-4 people)
This type of coaching is best for beginners just wanting to learn to shoot. The session can be several hours long, taking the student through the basics of archery so that they can become capable of shooting a bow.
Individual Structured Coaching
This is one-on-one coaching meeting once or twice a week for 1.5 hours with a structured program to achieve the highest level of skill that an archer is capable of with the ultimate goal of the student entering competitions. This type of instruction has skill training homework/practice meant to build the archer's abilities. We will also spend a great of time on the mental game of shooting/competing and tournament etiquette/preparation.
Instruction is done from Geauga Bow in Middlefield, Ohio.

Here is more information about our coach, John Siebert.
What people are saying.
I recently retired. After more than twenty years,I wanted to get back into bow hunting. I was fortunate to find John Siebert. He was very accessible, and willing to answer all my questions. Helping tune my bow and focusing on the basics. His training prepared me well for the hunt. I would highly recommend John and his training.
I shot leagues and other events for a number of years to just be with the guys. Never shoot too well until I had John coach me for six-weeks. He upped my game in no time so that I was shooting much better and consistently. Now shooting leagues and 3D archery on the weekends is more enjoyable and not frustrating. When I want to take it further, I'll be going back to John to get to the next level.
Our two daughters began working with John Siebert a little less than a year ago with a goal to become better at target archery. With John's years of knowledge and commitment to technique, and form, he has helped them reach an intermediate competitive level. John is extremely flexible to our schedules as a family, has a great deal of patience, and pays close attention to detail while keeping it fun, coaching both of our daughters. John also helped us with economical equipment suggestions and selection. It's been a pleasure working with John, and we would highly recommend him to any one looking to improve on their archery skill level.
