Instruction for any Level
Located outside Washington, DC in Northern Virginia (map), The Archery Program is an instructional program for all levels and interests in target archery – from beginner to serious competitor, using compound, recurve or traditional equipment. It is complete training for new and developing archers, and high-level coaching for competitors.
Archery is a precision skill, much more like a martial art than most sports.
Regardless of shooting style and equipment, archery is deceptively difficult. From the outside, it doesn’t look that hard – hold the bow, pull the string back, point it at the target and let go. That is one way to do it, but if you want to have a consistent pattern on the target, learning precise skills and focus required for consistency are necessary. There is a meditative quality about it, too. So there’s a lot more to archery than what you can observe.
