This 5 week special focus archery program allows children with Autism to participate in a sport that fosters confidence, social interaction, problem solving and team work.

For students ages 8-18 years.
We will meet on Thursday nights starting April 12 from 6-7 PM.

These two person teams will combine their scores using a handicap system to make the league fun, fair and competitive. Students ages 7 years and older are invited to participate. All levels of experience are welcome. You may use your own equipment or use ours.

I am excited to announce a new program we are offering at On Target Outfitters this winter --- an Archery Club. It is similar to our Archery Team where we provide coaching in proper form and technique, but it will be more like a league where students shoot for the pleasure of the sport, time with their friends and for the fun challenges that they can have. The Archery Club will focus more on these elements rather than on preparing for the next tournament. We will shoot for score on a regular basis (the league element) but will also play a variety of games and challenges.
The archery club will meet on Monday nights (6-7:30 PM) starting November 13 through December and on then on Saturdays (2-3:30 PM) in January, February and March.
The club is open to students ages 8-16 who have their own archery equipment. Genesis equipment is allowed for the club. (If Santa was going to bring your child a bow for Christmas, students can join after the holiday at a discounted rate of $75.)
We will be offering a 5 week instructional archery league this fall for students in grades 2-8.

Each week will be a blend of instruction, challenges, and a time to shoot for score (to measure personal growth).
This program will conclude on Saturday November 4 with a fun and friendly Genesis Tournament. Trophies will be awarded for 1st & 2nd place for all age brackets.
The instructional League will take place on Monday nights. The range times are based on grades.
Grades 2-4 from 5:30-6:45 PM
