Aaron Austin Named S3DA Kansas Coordinator

Aaron AustinLouisville, KY – In reaction to the continued growth of their youth archery program, Scholastic 3-D Archery has named Aaron Austin as the new Kansas State Coordinator for Scholastic 3-D Archery. As the State Coordinator, Aaron will oversee all aspects of the S3DA program in Kansas, including tournaments, training and dividing the state into regions that will allow S3DA participants multiple monthly competition venues as close as possible to their home location. Aaron will also recruit and hire Regional Coordinators to oversee and manage these individual regions.

Aaron Austin is currently the Bowhunter Education coordinator and NASP administrator for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. To him, starting S3DA in Kansas was an easy decision to help Kansas youth naturally grow in archery. Aaron is an avid bowhunter and 3-D archer who understands that the Kansas 3D archery community is a great resource for new shooters, hunters and budding responsible outdoorsmen.

“Aaron’s employment and close ties with the Kansas Department of Wildlife are exactly what we need to get S3DA jump-started in his state,” says Michael Lundeen, National Director for Scholastic 3-D Archery.

“I look forward to Kansas leading the way in many new areas of S3DA development.”

Started in December 2012 by the Scholastic Archery Association, S3DA has grown exponentially as a next step program to follow introductory programs offered as part of 4-H or the National Archery in Schools Program. S3DA addresses the need for a program to bridge beginning target archery experience and more advanced activities such as 3-D shooting and bowhunting. The program currently operates across the United States with hundreds of certified coaches serving thousands of young archers from grades 3–12.
