Testimonials

“It's true you can teach an old dog new tricks even after many years in the sport. So happy with the clear improvement in my technique after only the first few sessions with Alec. Appreciate his cool calm and collected approach. He is attentive and clear with his instructions. Can't wait to see where I go from here.”

-Tania Sacco

 

We decided to invest in professional coaching after Alec struck an instant rapport with our son, who he has now been coaching privately for several months. We have been impressed with Alec's natural approach to instructional education and his ability to communicate so effortlessly with our son; from relating metaphors to technique to making jokes! His vast knowledge, impressive skill set, friendly demeanor and positive enthusiasm instills confidence in his students. I couldn't recommend Alec highly enough to anyone who is considering to pursuit this sport seriously.

“Recently I resumed archery after a break of more than 40 years. I was pretty happy the way it came back to me, and was shooting fairly consistent, good intermediate scores as I had done decades earlier. The scores were creeping up a little with a lot of practice. When my wife talked me into entering the World Masters Games as almost my first competition in 43 years we decided I should get some coaching for the first time ever. We found Alec and after 3 coaching sessions my scores leapt 30% in a couple of weeks. A few weeks later at the Games in Auckland I got a 5th and a 6th in Field and 13th in target! Way above anything I ever expected! More than worth the 5-6 hours travelling and few dollars for coaching.”
