This Session is booked fully.  Parents have a choice of private lessons, or waiting until the 2024 indoor instructional system.

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.
