Archery/Physically Challenged

Archery for the physically disabled is designed for athletes ages 6 and over who are interested in learning the skills necessary to target shoot independently.

Athletes will learn how to draw the nock the arrow, draw it back, aim and release. In addition, many athletes will learn how to score their shoot. Athletes may use adapted equipment such as the bow stand (attached to the wheelchair arms to hold the bow), trigger releases, mouth releases, etc. In addition, there are divisions for both the recurve bow and the compound bow.

Practices run from January through April. Equipment for Archery is provided but potential archers are encouraged to bring or develop their own adapted equipment. There is no charge for the Archery program.
