Objectives

KidSpirit archery lessons give your child the chance to learn the ins and outs of a bow and arrow. In our archery classes, they will learn the mechanisms and techniques of firing, proper safety precautions, archery vocab, and history lessons about this exciting sport! Archery improves strength, patience, and hand-eye coordination skills that participants will use every day.

Join the 4-H Club to Compete: $35

This year, the KidSpirit Archery Program is partnering with 4H! This partnership gives kids the opportunity to compete monthly and work towards the State Competition. These competitions are during class times and only with KidSpirit's 4H members. After the competition, the targets are sent in to determine ranking. KidSpirit Archery kids who choose to do 4H will stay an additional 30 minutes after the scheduled class time 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 have gone through 4H training.
