Archery

Registration for Beginner Archery Classes:

Registration: June 30th at Round Up.

If there are additional spots open after Round Up, registration will continue through August 1st. If the class is full at Round Up, we will begin a wait list. We do not provide refunds, if you decide to drop the class. After Round Up, there will be a message posted to let you know if there are still spots open and how to send in your 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 ten beginner classes, fifty minutes each, offered this fall:

Students: Min 8-Max 15 students per class, 4th-12th grade

*Please consider waiting to enroll smaller 4th/5th grade students who may have difficulty pulling the bow back or shooting from 15m. Also, consider that 4th and 5th graders, who make the team, are not guaranteed a position to compete at all team tournaments since our team mostly competes as a high school team.

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
