“The right shot at the right moment does not come because you do not let go of yourself. You do not wait for fulfillment, but brace yourself for failure.”
- Zen and the Art of Archery
Once you have completed the Intro Class you are able to enroll in our Beginner Classes.
We recognize that no two archers are physically the same and that some individuals have a different learning style and pace to others. Diversity is what makes life fun. For this reason, our classes use a self-paced curriculum and teaching style. Although archery can be competitive, it is ultimately a solitary sport of self-improvement. You are your own competition. Through the course of lessons with us, we will teach how to take responsibility for your own development through personalized curriculum, while our instructors provide coaching, correction and testing during each class.
By becoming a member, you will also have full access to our Archery Range outside of classes during designated open range times and access to our workshop where you can learn to maintain and repair your equipment.
Why we teach Archery
The bow is a weapon that allowed our ancestors to literally bend nature to their will; claiming a place in the world and changing the course of human history in the process. From the first hunters and foragers to the Olympic champions of today, archery remains one of the most defining skills of humanity for over 65,000 years.
It is one of the simplest and yet deeply rewarding ancestral skills one can practice. It is accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds and especially for those with disabilities.
By teaching this ancient art, our goal is to give you:
Focus and concentration
Motivation and honest self-evaluation
Clarity of mind
Strength and coordination
