Heather Pfeil – Academy Program Coordinator

My entire family and I have been actively involved in Archery for over 15 years.  My father gave me a recurve bow when I was eight years old to shoot recreationally in the backyard and from that moment on I was hooked. Shortly thereafter, we joined a local Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) club for lessons and to train with some of the nation’s best coaches and archers, including Olympian Jake Kaminski. I shot Olympic Style Recurve for 10 years at a national level allowing me to train as a Resident Athlete at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. In 2006, I returned home to attend college and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations. I have been competing in the compound division for 6 years nationally in both target and 3-D archery. Recently, I’ve obtained my Level 4-NTS Coaching Certification from USA Archery, with a goal of continuing my certification levels. I also enjoy spending time outdoors hunting and fishing with my fiancé. Before coming to Lancaster, I volunteered alongside my family to run the same JOAD Archery program that I started shooting with in order to share my knowledge and passion for the sport of archery.

The degree of overlap between those four topics can honestly be surprising. I started shooting Olympic Recurve when I went to college in 2008 at James Madison University. As I became more familiar with the sport, the coaches introduced me to the National USAT circuit, and I’ve been hooked on FITA-style shoots ever since. By the time I left, I had not only gained my first coaching certification, but had begun to compete regularly in state and national-level events. I’ve been with the Academy since 2015, and have continued to pursue my coaching and competitive careers while here. I currently am a Level 4-NTS coach, and still shoot the USAT circuit every year. I hope to see you on the range!

Haly Grine - Academy Instructor

ALIGN=”left” HSPACE=”50” VSPACE=”50”/ I have been involved in the archery world for about four years. Growing up, I watched my dad as a bowhunter and have witnessed his hunting experiences. I decided that I wanted to learn how to shoot a bow to hunt alongside him, and so my dad signed me up for lessons at the Academy. It wasn’t long before I grew a serious love and passion for shooting. I was then introduced to competitive archery and joined the Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) club. I have competed in national-level tournaments and am active in the 3D world of shooting. I am a certified Level 1 Instructor, and enjoy sharing and spreading my love and knowledge of archery with new shooters.
