Williamsburg, KY – Amanda Adcock has been named as the S3DA Northeast Arkansas Regional Coordinator. As a Regional Coordinator, Amanda will oversee the development and operation of S3DA within the northeast region, including educating and recruiting parties interested in forming new S3DA teams, working with the State Coordinator, and when possible, attending and assisting with National S3DA events. Amanda Adcock’s son, Gillen, started showing interest in archery and joined the local club Nock On Nea. Over time, Amanda became interested in shooting a bow and took the S3DA Basic Archery Instructor Training course to become a coach. Amanda states, “My goal is reach out to the community and find youth and adults in my region interested in archery and educate them on what Arkansas S3DA is all about. I am going to visit schools that already offer archery programs to showcase how S3DA is the next-step for competitive archery and possibly collegiate archery.”
