Kat Davis

President of Central Texas Archery
USA Archery Level 3 NTS Coach
USA Archery Level 2 instructor trainer

Kat is a USA Archery Level 3 NTS Coach. She was raised just north of Austin in Liberty Hill and she has spent almost her entire life in the Austin area. Kat received her bachelor’s degree at Texas State University in San Marcos. She then taught in the public schools before devoting herself full time to homeschooling her three children.

Kat owns a custom cake design business and has worked as a cake decorating instructor. She became involved in archery in 2012 when her two sons took a homeschool archery class with friends. As one son progressed to a competitive archer, Kat began traveling with him throughout the country for archery tournaments and clinics.

After seeing the amazing programs and facilities that are available in other parts of the country, she soon realized that the Austin area needs a more developed and versatile archery program. Collaborating with Eric Davis and Jessica Schmer, Central Texas Archery was born, spreading the love of archery throughout Austin, Texas.

Jessica Schmer

Vice President; Secretary of Central Texas Archery
USA Archery Level 2 Instructor

Jessica, along with her parents, planted roots in the Austin area back in 1984.  She obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1999 and progressed through a career in Custom Residential Construction and Project Management.  She is a wife and the proud mother of her two kids.

It was her daughter who, back in 2014, asked for archery lessons and thus began her adventure into the great world of archery!  Seeing a need for a program that is all inclusive and wanting to share her love of archery with others in the central Texas area, she is thrilled to be working alongside Kat and Eric to establish an archery program that is safe, fun and educational!

Eric Davis

Treasurer of Central Texas Archery
USAA Archery Level 2 Instructor Trainer
USAA Certified Continental Judge

Eric began shooting archery in his teens as part of Boy Scouts and 4-H. His family began teaching archery courses to various organizations when his mom got her level 1 certification and his dad a level 3 certification. He is a father of 3, including a son who is a nationally ranked archer and is on the USAA Regional Dream Team.

He enjoys coaching and judging because it allows him to help others to improve and learn about the sport. Eric is excited to work with CTA for the same reason. He wants to share archery with as many people in Central Texas as he can and let them achieve whatever they choose in the sport. Eric believes that archery is supposed to be fun, teach discipline, and build a community of family.
