More experienced archers who are past the initial learning stages and have demonstrated skills beyond beginning aptitude may join the Intermediate Archery Class. The Intermediate Archery Class focuses on learning more advanced archery techniques than the basics and introducing competition level techniques. Archers who wish to join the Intermediate Archery Class must first demonstrate they are able to execute the basics of proper archery form correctly and consistently.
Intermediate Archery Class will be held weekly on Fridays from 7 pm – 9 pm, and Saturdays from 11 am – 1 pm. Students are expected to arrive 15 minutes before class starts to get their equipment set up.
Class members are required to purchase a Class Card to attend.
