Scott Tuchel has been hired as youth archery coach by the Bainbridge Island Sportsmen’s Club.
He will start his new job on Nov. 5, and club officials said classes will begin in early December.
Tuchel, who currently oversees fly rod production at Sage Manufacturing, has been an archer since he was 8. He has lived on Bainbridge along with his wife and two young daughters since 2010.
The Bainbridge Island Sportsmen’s Club had a grand opening for its archery range two months ago. The series of youth classes is expected to be announced within the next few weeks, with instruction beginning the first week of December.
Tuchel also wants to start a youth archery club early next year.
“I want to see the archery range as a place where kids and families feel welcome,” he said. “I am so pleased to have the opportunity to introduce kids to such a fun and rewarding sport.”
The club also noted it will host two representatives from the Washington State Archery Association on Nov. 3 to conduct basic archery instructor training.
