Explore Archery

The Explore Archery program is an introduction to archery for all ages. Each session focuses on a particular aspect of archery. Some sessions will focus on form, others on scoring, some on accuracy, and also safety. Instruction is done in the form of games geared toward each skill. Archers have the ability to earn up to five achievement medals for completing each skill. This class can be taken by any level of archer, as it works on the core skills needed to be successful. All archers will register separately with USA Archery for a free membership.
