REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2023 - 2024 CLASSES!
This is an introductory course to target archery and the core content of the program covers the history of archery, archery safety, shooting techniques, equipment, mental concentration, and development of core physical strength.
Aside from the primary goal of teaching the basic skills needed to learn a traditional, lifetime shooting sport, this course aims to improve student motivation, attention, behavior, and focus. The program helps students develop their micro- and macro-motor skills in addition to their listening and observation skills. Students will participate in strength training exercises and how to effectively use the stretch band and string bow to further their archery skills and endurance. This is a course that will be enjoyed by every age and is suitable for everyone!
All equipment is provided for this program. The bows we use are safe with a universal fit easy for the student to learn to use and identical for every student. We use the Genesis Original compound bow which has no let-off and is adjustable from 10-20 pounds in draw weight at any draw length and the Easton 1820 aluminum arrow. Students are able to purchase their own bow and arrows through our program.
Students will need to be able to listen and follow instruction. Students will wear comfortable clothing for exercise and be required to bring their string bow (provided by Velos) to every class. Closed-toed shoes are required and long hair will need to be pulled back during the time the student is at the shooting line.
