Junior Program Coach Allen Chatten

Allen Chatten’s interest in archery began as a young man, when his father started bowhunting.  He promptly purchased his first bow, started shooting 3D, and placed 1st in Hunter Class at his first local tournament.  Since 1992, Allen has competed in many archery disciplines, including Indoor 3D, Outdoor 3D, Indoor Target (including the World Archery Shoot in Las Vegas) and Outdoor Target Competitions.  He is also an avid bowhunter, with numerous big game species harvested.

Allen is a Certified National Intermediate Coach who loves to share his experience and knowledge with new archers.  He is passionate about the sport and uses his positive energy to keep archery fun for his students.  He coached the Alberta Winter Games Team in 2008 and 2010 and was Archery Chair of the Alberta Winter Games in 2012.  He has coached many young athletes who went on to attend International events and who were also awarded medals in National, Provincial and Local events. Allen is an Accredited Learning Facilitator for FCA Beginner Archery Instructors (Coach Instructor).

Allen has many other accomplishments as a head coach, judge, high performance member, instructor, pro staff member and staff shooter.  His personal competition accomplishments are numerous.  Allen has coordinated and coached the Junior Program at Parkland Bowbenders from 2005-2010 and from 2013 to Present.
