Archery School of the Rockies Coach Bios
 
 
karinpicture2Karin Bock - Head Coach
Karin has coached cheerleading, volleyball, bowling and archery for more than 40 years.  Karin began the Colorado Springs JOAD club which evolved into the Archery School of the Rockies because of her love of teaching young athletes and helping them overcome challenges.  She is also a certified USA Archery Judge.  “I have coached various sports for over 40 years. Of all the sports, I love archery more than all the rest. For me archery is a ballet, symphony and a beautiful painting all rolled into one.  It requires a balance between the body and the mind and develops both in different ways.  Archery develops patience, self-control, organization, tenacity and a focus on details.  While archery is an individual sport it also encourages team work and can increase mentoring opportunities.  The goal as a coach is to be able to develop those qualities in our student archers while they are having fun so they take those skills forward the rest for their life.”

Mike Grover

Mike has been hunting and shooting competitively with a bow for over 30 years and has harvested both whitetail and mule deer while bow hunting. He has won archery competitions on many levels to include 14 South Dakota State Championships and one Midwestern Sectional championship.

“I remember thinking many times that I wish I had someone who could teach me the right way to shoot so I didn't have to learn it all on my own. After a little convincing from my wife, I finally decided it was time to give back to the sport I have enjoyed so much. I truly enjoy helping other archers avoid many of the mistakes I made along the way and I hope my students get as much enjoyment out of this sport as I have over all these years.”

 
dennishesspicDennis Hess
Dennis is a retired Army veteran and currently works in the construction field.  He has been involved in archery for over 20 years and particularly enjoys 3D competitions and has a passion for bow hunting.  Dennis has been a PSE Staff Shooter since 2007.   “I enjoy passing along what I've learned over the years to other archers.  I started shooting archery without any formal instruction and luckily, I met some knowledgeable and helpful people along the way who shared their experience with me.  From personal experience I know archery can be difficult without a helping hand so now it's time for me to pass the tradition and what I’ve learned on."

eriklandstrompicErik Landstrom
Erik is a lifelong archer who is especially passionate about learning and applying an analytical mindset to how all the pieces of archery (whether that’s the archer, arrows, bows, or other equipment) work together.  “My name is Erik and I am an Archeholic.  It has been three days since my last archery purchase...  All kidding aside, I am obsessed with archery and every aspect of it.  I started coaching when another archery coach in my martial arts class introduced me to the family that has become ASR.  The kids and adults that I have had the honor to coach and learn from are what keep me coming back week to week.  Watching those "ah ha" moments when something clicks and then seeing the archers week after week setting new personal bests is what it is all about.  Thank you ASR for giving me an outlet for my condition.”

I want to help others find enjoyment, growth, and passion through archery as it allows people of any age or physical ability to achieve their goals and find ways to say “yes I can!” It’s about something greater than just shooting arrows at a target.”

bradhagerpicBrad Hager
Brad Hager is a Level 2 NTS Coach from Colorado Springs, CO. Brad started his archery journey in 2006 when he began hunting for elk in the mountains and deer and antelope on the plains of Colorado with his bow. His love for the sport quickly spread to his wife and two kids making it a family sport and something to bring the family together. It was in 2013 when his kids joined JOAD that Brad had the desire to teach others the sport in an effort to help them experience the joy it brings him to draw the arrow back.
