Archery

Registration for Beginner Archery Classes:

Beginner Archery Classes will be offered this fall through Eagle’s Nest. Lessons are taught using the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP).

Archery lessons are presented in a sequence that promotes safety and the learning of sound archery basics. Before learning to shoot a bow, the student will first learn how to maintain archery’s impeccable safety record. The new archer will learn the basics of form as taught by the String Bow and Eleven Steps to Archery Success. The student is guided through a demonstration of how a safe archery range is operated and how to properly shoot an arrow. For more information about NASP, visit www.archeryintheschools.org

Materials Provided: Only one bow is used in NASP, the universal-fit Genesis compound, and one type of arrow, the full-length Eastern Genesis aluminum arrow. Sights, release aids, and stabilizers are kept out of NASP. Equipment will be provided by the instructors.

Registration: June 8th at Eagle’s Nest Round Up, located at Crossroads Church on Hwy 154.

*If there are additional spots open after Round Up, registration will continue through September 1st. If the class is full at Round Up, we will begin a wait list. Please note that we do not provide refunds, if you decide to drop the class.

After Round Up, there will be a message posted to the ENCHEA yahoo email group to let members know if there are still spots open and how to send in registration.

Students must complete the beginner archery class to be eligible to try out for the Eagles Nest Archery Team, unless previously NASP trained or comparable, TBD by team coaches. In addition, students can take classes and choose not to try out for the team.

There will be a total of ten hours of beginner class, offered this fall:
