Club President Nico Gallegos is an “old school” traditional archer who shoots a made-in-the-USA hand crafted wood recurve bow “off the shelf.” Nico shoots in the instinctive style (that does not mean he doesn’t aim!).
The best way to take advantage of Nico as a coach is to participate in his Barebow Archery Development (BBAD) Program. Nico has written a number of blog articles about shooting – check them out on the Ohlone Archery Blog – type “Nico Gallegos” in the blog search engine.
Nico spent two years shooting an Olympic Style Recurve bow competitively, two years shooting a Freestyle Compound Bow competitively, and is trained as a USA Archery Level 3 NTS Coach. He is very familiar with technical, competitive Barebow archery as well. He can bring that background into your training, and recommend one of the other coaches if you want to go in a different direction.
Nico also offers archery consulting services: he can help you open your own archery club (like Ohlone Archery!), and teaches USA Archery Level 1 and Level 2 Certification classes.
