Who We Are and What We Do

In our archery classes, we teach the mechanisms and techniques of firing, proper safety precautions, archery vocab, and history lessons about this exciting sport! Our instructors will work hands on with your child to help improve their stance, aim and focus. Whether you're a regular Robin Hood or have never picked up a bow before, we have a class for you!

Class & Pick-up Location

Classes take place in the Langton Golf Cages, a covered area towards the south end of the Langton Hall between Langton and Dixon Rec Center. Pick-up takes place at the golf cages once class has ended. Instructors will notify you if classes will be at E.E. Wilson instead.
