THIS SESSION IS BOOKED FULLY. If you are interested in signing up for group lessons, please refer to Session #4 at the same time.
Beginner Youth classes run for 6 weeks, one hour per week, covering The Ten Basic Steps to Good Shooting for archers ages 6 to 10. South Nation Archery supplies all the equipment. Students should bring indoor shoes and wear snug-fitting clothing on the upper body.
It is highly recommended that students take this course 2-3 times before considering the youth advanced courses. Parents and students should discuss this progression with Kathleen Millar in order to ensure that it is appropriate.
