KidSpirit Archery Program

Objectives

During archery, KidSpirit gets the chance to teach your kids about the ins and outs of the bow and arrow. They will learn the mechanisms and techniques that go into firing a bow along with proper safety precautions. We also build their knowledge and vocabulary by providing brief history lessons into how this fun sport came to be. Beyond its basic principles, Archery improves strength, patience, and hand eye coordination skills that participants will use every day.
