Introductory Family Archery
While sitting in the bleachers amazed by how much fun their children are having as they learn to shoot a bow and arrow safely, correctly, and on target, some parents and grandparents have wished they could join the class. Now they can, in our new “Introduction to Family Archery Class,” created and taught by USA Archery Certified Instructor, Robert Schaefer. In this 6-week course, everyone will learn how to shoot the Genesis compound-type bow correctly, with accuracy improving each week. This builds a solid foundation for advancement in any form of archery. Safety is emphasized continuously. The first class, held in a classroom, is MANDATORY. It teaches safety essentials, range protocols, equipment handling, shooting techniques, and more, supported by photos and diagrams presented in ways that both youngsters and adults will understand. The next five weekly shooting classes are held in the
Auxiliary Gym archery range. Ages 7 to adult family members
