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.
Archery classes will run April 7 - June 9 (Saturdays Only) (No class on May 26th for Memorial Weekend)
Saturdays 10:00am-10:50am (Starting September 24)
The KidSpirit Archery Program will be partnering with 4H this year. This partnership gives kids the opportunity to compete in monthly competitions to work towards competing at the State Competition. Theses competitions happen during the class time and only with KidSpirit's 4H members, the targets are then sent in to determine ranking. KidSpirit Archery kids who choose to do 4H will stay an additional 30 minutes after the normal class to learn how to keep an archery journal, and work towards completing their advancements. Our Archery supervisor is 4H instructor certified, all assistants are 4H volunteer certified, and all have gone through 4H training.
Classes will take place in the Langton Golf Cages, which is a covered area towards the south end of Langton hall, between Langton and Dixon Rec Center. Can't find them? Look at this map or contact the KidSpirit office. Pick-up will also take place at the golf cages once class has ended. Instructors will notify if classes will be at E.E. Wilson instead.
For safety reasons, non-participants will need to stay in the designated viewing area as specified by the instructor.
