Archery is safe, fun, and easy to learn. It is a sport that is geared for all ages and can be enjoyed by the entire family.

There is no limit to learning archery. The various programs we offer will help participants acquire the skills needed to learn archery, whether it is for the joy of the sport or to participate in the many archery tournaments offered throughout the country.

Benefits of Archery

Focus – Concentration – Goals

Participants learn that they must overcome distractions and obstacles, and have a plan of action. Archery provides fundamental relaxation qualities. The archer must be focused on the shot process and the overall outcome of that process. Archery is a self-challenging and rewarding activity that can help archers succeed as individuals or as part of a team. Archery helps our participants to succeed in multiple aspects of their everyday lives.

Our programs are structured to teach Olympic-target style archery to students 9 years of age and older.

Archery maintains its high safety level through the proper training and certification of archery instructors. Our classes are taught by a USA Archery NTS certified instructor, and adhere to the safety guidelines of the USA Archery Instructor Training program, the official training courses of the National Archery Association (NAA). The NAA is affiliated with the Federation of International Target Archery (FITA), which is the international governing body for Olympic style archery competitions. Our instructors teach traditional archers, recreational archers, and bow hunters in addition to target archers.
