Try it First; See What It’s Like

Covid-19 Limitation: With the pandemic, The Archery Program is working to keep everyone safe. Introductions were 10 people with 2 shooting at a time, sharing bows. Obviously, that cannot work now. Also, they were held indoors, which is problematic with air circulation potentially spreading the virus. So for the time being, the General Introductions are discontinued. We will allow a 2-person Introduction held outdoors where it is safer. Social distancing, masks, cleaning of surfaces, equipment and hand sanitizer will be maintained. The description of a standard Introduction is kept here so you can get an idea of what it is like. At some point, hopefully, we’ll safely get back to that!

Covid-19 Update: With winter coming on, having the Introductions exclusively outdoors will not work for long. We are in the process of a permanent solution that will make the range safe for everybody. In any case, at the moment, the indoor range is empty in the mornings. So you will have an option of a Try-It session either indoors or outdoors, where partly weather-dependent, partly your preference.

There are a couple ways to initially experience archery through The Archery Program – General Introductions and Private Introductions. The Archery Program uses really light-weight equipment for these Introductions, which is critical for learning.

Original General Introductions – For those who have never shot, the Try It One-Time Introduction allows you to either experience what target shooting is like, or to assess the interest of a child. In a small group with 2 instructors, there is basic instruction, then each instructor works with one person as he/she shoots. So, for an hour, you and/or your child can experience what shooting is like and what instruction is like. Equipment is provided.

Gift Certificates for Introductions are available.

Original Private Introductions – For groups (Scouts, birthday parties, etc.) Private Introductions are possible. The format is the same, but it is just your group. Contact The Archery Program directly for information. While parties are more relaxed, the general format of a Private Introduction is the same as the General Introduction. We do the archery, you can bring what you want for the party.

General One-Time Introductions are regularly scheduled. The dates are listed on the registration form by month.
