What is the X10 Archery Academy?
The X10 Academy is the premier training program in the Houston Area. The X10 Academy has developed archers from true beginners to National and State Champions, USA Archery Team Members (USAT), and USA Archery Regional Elite Development Team Members. When students choose X10, they get more than weekly lessons; they study under Texas’s most experienced instructors. X10’s Team dedicates itself to helping students achieve greatness.
Meet the X10 Academy Team
The X10 Team is more than Coaches; they are competitors themselves. The X10 Academy Team consists of Houston’s only USA Archery Level 4 NTS Coaches. The Academy is home to Former Team USA Members, Collegiate All American Athletes, State Record Holders, National, and State Champions, International, National, and State Medalists.
Why Should I Choose the X10 Academy?
The X10 Academy is more than an archery range or a training program; X10 is a community. At X10, each coach is committed to developing elite athletes and well-rounded humans. X10 archers learn more than how to shoot their bows. They will learn time management, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
