Students are provided equipment and practice 3AR shooting techniques, while learning safety rules, range layout and etiquette – the goal is to achieve fundamental archery literacy and Range Certification (at 10 yards can put 5 out of 6 arrows in 12″ target!). This is a student’s first developmental step on the Learning Path. Clinic repeats weekly, same material.
