ParaArchery

Archery is one of the oldest sports known to mankind. Archery is extremely accessible and easily adapted for most individuals with a disability. In most cases it comes down to technique and very little adaptive equipment is needed. If an archer does need adaptations we can provide bite tabs, trigger releases, and other equipment as necessary.

Archery helps develop focus, consistency, and strength in athletes of all ages. It is very simple to learn yet requires a lifetime to truly master this sport. It is both relaxing and competitive and it's easy for entire families and groups of friends to get together to enjoy this versatile sport.

Archery equipment is provided at both group and individual lessons. Our equipment is designed to introduce the athlete to the sport. Athletes are encouraged to acquire their own equipment as they become more involved with the sport to customize their bow to their unique shooting styles.

 


2020 Group Instruction & Shooting

The 2020 archery program is hosting a 6 week program on Tuesday evenings from October 6 - November 17 (excluding the date of November 3). We have secured the main gymnasium at Fairview Recreation Center from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. The cost is $60 for six weeks and includes instruction, equipment and facility access.

Each archer will need to wear a mask into the facility and throughout the session. Please check in with the screener at the Rec Center prior to entering the gym. Please do not arrive early and make arrangements to depart immediately after the session concludes. We will have adequate supplies for each archer to handle only one set of arrows throughout the session. Bows, if shared, will be sanitized between each use.  Please bring your own bottled beverage as water fountains have all been turned off and no drinking water will be available.
