This is a fundamental program of structured drills & skills practice. The games of archery (ie. outdoor, indoor, 3D) are introduced and students are prepared for participating in official WORLD ARCHERY tournaments (the “Sport” of Archery). Students participate in our monthly TAIL shoot (last Sunday of month) to experience tournament scoring, rules, conditions and earn advancement levels before moving on to ACADEMY.
ACADEMY – USA Archery certified instructors work with shooters (all equipment included, acceptable personal equipment may be used, minimum age 10 years old) using OAS (Olympic Archery in Schools) curriculum as foundation and several organizations as a league of play.
