Join Union’s Archery Club! Come see what archery is all about in this introductory archery enrichment program. During the course, students will learn safety rules, proper handling of equipment, proper shooting techniques, learn scoring and play games designed to improve performance. Each student will have 6 weeks to practice and evaluate their skills while ending the course with a fun tournament during the final class. Students will meet each week regardless of weather. In the event of inclement weather, we will go inside and have classroom discussion on archery. Students will watch instructional videos and practice posture techniques with stretchy bands. We will watch the weather and go back outside as the opportunity arises. Two instructors will be teaching this course to ensure the safety of the students and a 9:1 student to teacher ratio. There will be two ranges set up with three targets in each range. This means that only 3 students at most will be at one target at any given time. This ensures student safety and plenty of shooting time! You will receive a newly designed awesome Archery Club t-shirt as well!
