Yale Nogin

Head Coach - NTS Level 4

Head Coach Yale Nogin has over 35 years of experience shooting archery, with over 8 years of experience teaching archery and is a USA Archery NTS Level 4 Coach (National Training System). As the founder of the Atlanta Archery Club, Coach Yale seeks to instill a love of this most empowering, art and sport in every student. Yale has taught archery lessons in Atlanta to children as young as 5, children with special needs, teens, adults, grandparents and even a few great grandparents! Coach Yale's many achievements include being the Associate Professor of Archery at Kennesaw State University Department of Health Promotion and Physical Education and a BSA (Boy Scouts of America) Archery Merit Badge Counselor. Yale's unique approach to teaching and coaching the philosophy, science and art of archery comes from combining his interest in archery, background as a chiropractor, 25 years practicing yoga and meditation as more recently Pure Barre. What Coach Yale loves most about archery is sharing the beautiful and life-long skills the sport offers to all ages. Preferred bow: Olympic Recurve Bare Bow because it melds ancient style with the modern technology. I enjoy barebow because it is challenging to aim without a sight and at the same time rewarding to aim without a sight. What drew you to archery? When I was a boy, the beauty of the bow drew me in as well as Errol Flynn's portrayal of Robin Hood. After all of these years practicing, it is the art and discipline as well as the self-empowering experience shooting a bow offers that continues to draw me in.
