Want to give archery a try?

Lessons are for Olympic style recurve bow, focusing on form and safety , giving students basics that will get them safely shooting, and offer a general feel for archery. Classes review  range rules, safety gear (finger tabs, arm guards, sling, etc),  and size the bow and arrow to the archer. All equipment would be supplied.

Classes teach the National Training System. This method has been established as the method of training by  US Olympic head coach Kisik Lee. This training form is filtering down through all N.A.A. JOAD & adult programs nationwide. (JOAD =Junior Olympic Archery Development)
