IMG_9794

We are excited that Brett Litzler has achieved his level 4 USAA coaching certification. Brett started with the Easton Salt Lake Archery Center in Jan of 2016 and has been a key part of our growth and program development.

Brett bought his first bow in November of 2011 and never looked back! He began learning under the instruction of Mr. Richard Tone, the former head coach of the United States Olympic team. In no time, he was hooked! The thrill of competition always keeps him fueled, as well as wanting more knowledge and experience in archery.

Brett has competed in many competitions, from small local shoots, to world ranking events. In 2015, Brett won the Arizona state Indoor Recurve Championship, and placed 2nd in the Arizona State Outdoor Championships to a 2-time Olympic Silver Medalist.

“I’m excited to learn, I’m excited to get a bow in people’s hands, I’m excited to teach them that this is fun, and you can really do anything you want in archery.” Brett states. Brett was the Program Coordinator for one of the first “Retail Archery Academy’s” in the country and his main goal is to, “grow and change the sport of archery”.

We are pleased to have him as part of the Easton Foundations. We look forward to his new knowledge and how it can help grow the sport of archery. Congratulations Brett, on a well deserved accomplishment.
