Students may attend Archery Club all of the days if they desire. I understand completely if students do not attend all sessions. Archery Club will focus on target archery. Archery is a lifetime skill and is safe, wholesome, and non-controversial.
The program is designed to give students in 5th grade an opportunity to practice archery skills safely with friends. Learning a lifetime skill at an early age will give the individual the ability to choose whether to continue target shooting or try other venues i.e. Olympic archery. Archery is a powerful inner wealth building skill. It caters to all people especially the niche of students who do not identify with team sports. Archery has nothing to do with strength or athletic ability. It teaches independence, motor planning, movement concepts, social and personal responsibility, communication, cooperation, respect for rules and regulation and fulfilling commitments to others and oneself just to name a few.
