Easton Salt Lake Archery Center employee earns his Level 4 USA Archery Coach Certification

By Trevor Thornton
December 18 2017

We are excited to announce 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.

December 2016

The Easton Salt Lake Archery Center has been as busy as ever! We’ve seen classes, corporate events, team visits and more the last few months.

We held a level I and II coach certification class the first week of August and people came in from all over Utah as well as Montana, Oklahoma, New York and even Turkey. They spent two days learning in the conference room, shooting in the indoor range as well as touring the library and the rest of the center. Everyone left happy and we got a few glowing reviews on Facebook from this course.

probar-partyThe following week we had ProBar, one of our corporate members, utilize everything the facility has to offer during their summer staff party. They took a break from their workday and came over to shoot the Olympic distance, compete in archery tag, shoot at glowing targets in the cosmic room and try their hand at skeet archery. We really enjoyed having them in the center and love getting the chance to show people just how much fun archery can be!

Also in August we had a JDT camp at the center. They worked hard indoors all week and spent one afternoon letting loose and playing archery tag and shooting skeet. TOP Archery Canada also spent a week with us. They spent time in the classroom with guest lecturers, range time with coaches and they also made time for archery tag while they were here. We love hosting these youth camps and watching these kids learn and achieve their goals.

rural-water-association-team-buildingSeptember and October were filled with corporate team building groups. Departments from Clearlink, Intermountain Healthcare, Rural Water Association of Utah and more have come in to learn a new skill and come together as teams to figure out how to best achieve a common goal during our team building round.   We also saw several birthday parties in the center.   Everyone who comes in for any of these activities is invited to come back and join us for our “FUN”damentals classes.

We’ve had several staff changes in the center the last couple of months. Trevor Thornton was promoted to Center Director. Trevor has been working at the center since the beginning and is passionate about the Easton Foundations and is striving to continue moving the center in a positive direction.   Alli Rutland was promoted from Administrative Assistant to Center Manager and Wendy Brimley was hired as our Events Coordinator. Wendy will be taking over all aspects of the events we hold in the center and has brought a positive energy to the center that everyone loves. We also hired Amber on as a receptionist after over a year of working for us through a staffing service. We’re excited to have her on as an official part of the Salt Lake team. All of the staff here at the center are looking forward to working together to help the center reach its full potential.

August 2016 Newsletter

By Lynn Stuart

Aug 2016.2The Easton Salt Lake Archery Center has been focusing on promoting the sport of archery in a variety of ways. Archery Tag is now part of our repertoire. There has been an enormous amount of fun had by all those that have played. We started Archery Tag off one evening with a youth group for a couple of hours.  Ever since then, word has spread that we have this new element at our center. We know this as we were challenged to a competition by another company in the area to have an Archery Tag battle against them.  Our corporate members; Woulf Engineering, Hoyt and Easton have been here taking advantage of this great way to get some exercise, work together, devise team strategies and ultimately take down the opposing team.

Aug 2016We have had several big events here and it was an honor for us to be a part of the 36th National Veteran’s Wheelchair Games. Over a hundred archers competed against each other and the competition was evident. One of the athletes competing during the games was Happy Barton. She served in the Navy as an electronics technician and radio repairman. Happy was injured while serving in Desert Storm.  She has been training at our center with her coach; our own Coach Brett Litzler.  Her coach said “When Happy came to us she stated; ‘I want my Gold Medal!’ During the games, Happy stayed calm, cool and collected.  We worked on some mental training and focus. These aspects really paid off for Happy. She ended up shooting over 50 points higher than she did last year at the games. Happy received the Gold Medal in her division.”  Happy said that she was completely shocked and thrilled.

We welcomed the Bow Hunting Roundtable for a couple of days and this hard working group decided to compete against each other as they played Archery Tag in our indoor range. They also took advantage of our archery skeet machine and had several rounds of target practice on our outdoor range. There is some great video of this on our Facebook page.

Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife held their annual banquet in our center for the second year in a row. Our indoor range provided all the space they needed for target practice, shooting 3D animals and skeet. It was fun to see the wide variety of people and their families enjoying themselves as they perused through the huge selection of auction items, placed bids, and waited to see what they won.

We hosted the Big Sky Open and the weather was fantastic. Hundreds of people came from across the country to be a part of this. Both our indoor and outdoor ranges provided plenty of space for the variety of shooting distances. Not only was this a great few days for shooting archery, but also vendors were able to utilize our Embrasure room to showcase their products. We look forward to being a part of this event next year.

We celebrated Olympic Day by opening the center to show support for the upcoming Olympics. Everyone was welcome to spend time in the center, free of charge. This was a fantastic way to showcase the center. Shooting the Olympic distance was a highlight of the day and many people were amazed at how difficult it is to hit any part of the target from so far away. In addition, we offered Cosmic Archery inside and Archery Skeet and Archery Tag on the outdoor range. Many people took advantage of the indoor range as we had a Try Archery class for those that were interested.

We will have Team Japan at the center as they prepare for the Olympics and this is an honor for us to be their training facility. The USA Para team will also utilize the center in preparation for the Olympics.

USA Archery Board of Directors held their Board of Directors meeting at our center. Corporate groups reserve meeting space and then end their time with one of our archery options. We had PRO BAR shoot skeet and Salt Lake Community Action Program play Archery Tag on the outdoor range. Fidelity Investments & Golden Living Senior Citizens group came here to do a team-building round on the indoor range.

We have an Archers Group, once a week, where archers can come and socialize and shoot without any pressure. In addition, our coaches are providing private lessons. Birthday parties are a popular event especially in our Cosmic Archery room. Scout groups are coming in to finish up a merit badge or shooting for fun.

Our summer camps have included groups from the National History Museum and Camp U from the University of Utah. These young archers enjoyed themselves as they were taught about safety and shooting technique, and shot arrows from 3 different stations throughout the center. Each camper was given information about our “Fun”damentals course and they were invited to return and join this great class.

We continue to have a great interest in our Try Archery, “Fun”damentals, 18 + Fundamentals, Intermediate and Brass Tacks classes. Those archers spending time each week, in these courses, not only learn about archery, but they are having fun as they spend time together.  These weekly classes will take place for the remainder of the summer.








Updates from the Easton Salt Lake Archery Center

By Lynn Stuart

The Easton Salt Lake Archery Center was awarded the “Best of 2016 in Salt Lake City” in the Archery Ranges category. This makes it 2 years in a row and has placed us in the Business Hall of Fame for Salt Lake City.  We are very proud to accept this honor and will continue to keep the center at this level.

The center has been busy with site tours, birthday parties, scout groups, youth groups, members, and general public using both the indoor and outdoor ranges. We have had a wide variety of activities that have helped grow the sport of archery, which include; team-building activities for many organizations as well as private lessons, a winter league, and weekend practices for JOAD. We hosted the Beehive – Wasatch Bowhunters youth league, a spring fling shoot, try archery, and basic 2 and basic 3 classes. We anticipate an increase in the intermediate class coming from basic 2 and basic 3 shooters.

IMG_0226.1During January and February, a 3D league was held in our indoor range for HOYT and Easton. These shooters spent a few hours together each week and they were in charge of the set up and take down for the 6-week league. It was great to see everyone working together as they created the indoor 3D landscape as the animal targets were put into place throughout the range. In March we were pleased, once again, to have the opportunity to host the 2016 JOAD and Indoor Nationals.  Hundreds of archers participated and the energy level was evident from the start. It was great to see our center full of competitive shooters and help them have an awesome experience.  As the weekend event progressed the center transformed into a community of shooters, meeting new people and being reunited with friends and family. The judges and staff put in many hours and did a fantastic job in facilitating these events.  The pictures on our Facebook page have captured some great aspects of the national experience. Our Facebook page reaches so many people and is a true showcase for the versatility of the center.

Shortly after the National events, The Junior Dream Team set up shop for a week and had an enjoyable time being coached while utilizing our indoor range for shooting and working on balance. Many of the team used our workshop for their bows, and our high-speed camera for technique and shot analysis. As a result, each team member heightened their individual skills as they worked together as a team. As their camp concluded they were the first group to have fun with one of our latest acquisitions; an archery skeet machine. Not only did the JDT campers shoot flu-flu arrows at foam disks in the air, but the JDT coaches did as well. It was great to see the competitive nature of the coaches’ surface.

New landscapingLandscaping modifications are evolving at the center. We are eliminating all of the grass at the back of the property around the outdoor field and replacing it with turf that will extend to the west and east sides of the property.  In the long run this will reduce the amount of money spent on watering costs, landscaping costs and controlling the mosquitos during the warm weather.  We are also adding rock to the back berm and clearing out all the berms on the 3D range to create one big open space. This area will be used as the practice field during the World Cup and will open up more opportunities to hold larger outdoor tournaments.  We will still be able to utilize the space for our 3D range and shoots. We now have the ability to create larger and different animal layout scenarios.

We are looking forward to opportunities to grow the sport of archery over the next few months and into the summer. Our center activities calendar is filling up and we look forward to playing archery tag as well as using our archery hover ball game and archery skeet machine.

Brazil Visits the Easton Salt Lake Archery Center

By: Lynn Stuart

Dedication Plaque

The Easton Salt Lake Archery Center has had a busy winter season that has seen a myriad of people within its walls. Every person that enters can now view the centers commemorative sign that has been recently affixed near the entry doors to the outside wall of this archery superstructure. The cold, wind and snow are no contest for the events that have taken place, thus far, including; a payback league, a group from Wounded Warriors and the first of many participants shooting arrows in the Embrasure room, which will soon be our Archery Academy.

We hosted the continental coach’s conference, which brought coaches from North, Central and South America. This diverse group of athlete mentors collaborated on a variety of topics, including; athletes health, diet, exercise, nutrition, goal setting, stamina, how to build an athlete, sport psychology, and set up for recurve and compound bows. Representatives from Hoyt, Easton and Gold Tip gave presentations during the conference as well.

Team BrazilTeam Brazil spent 7 days training, working on physical fitness, shooting hundreds of arrows and building team unity. This caught the attention of the one the Salt Lake City television stations and a story ran showcasing the center and team Brazil. There were intermediate archery classes, a winter league, basic I & basic II classes, and multiple companies meeting in the conference room.

Holiday events were held for our corporate members Hoyt, and PRO BAR. These companies had fun as they celebrated the business year, took pictures and spent time together shooting as groups. There has been a constant flow of people coming to enjoy archery and then returning again with their family members as a result of their experience shooting arrows. In addition, visitors have come for tours of the facility. Many private archery lessons have been held and the coaching has been well received. Birthday parties have taken place. Fun and archery have been the theme.

Throughout the holiday season, we participated in the Utah Food Banks “Holiday Food Drive”, fighting hunger statewide. Word got out quickly that if you bring a can of food to the Easton Archery Center, two hours of shooting in the indoor range would be the reward. The center had an after Christmas sale which brought in archers, as prices had been lowered & many people had new archery equipment which they used for the first time here in our facility.

Many youth groups have come to shoot in the indoor range. Several have never shot archery. Before shooting, they were taught about range safety and bow safety, including how to properly retrieve the arrows from a target. Teams were formed, including selecting a captain. After a practice round, a fun shooting game ensued, in which every arrow counted, and every member shot just one arrow. Team members encouraged each other, and this was great to see. It was fun to watch as the more arrows that each person shot, the more they laughed and joked with each other and became more relaxed.

Our Facebook page is a very rewarding and valuable asset. The posted information, videos and photos have reached thousands and these snapshots are being shared and liked. Those that spend time here are posting comments that express how much fun they had with insightful comments, which are appreciated. Please use our page to see what is being posted and to answer questions about classes, manager discounts, special prices, upcoming events.
