| About the Lessons:
DRB archery lessons are taught by certified USAA/NFAA Level II coaches and are held at our 17-lane indoor archery range. Three courses are available to meet the needs of most any archer* wanting to improve their scores.
* Ages for our students are from 8 to 88. We like students to be at least 8. Younger students sometimes have trouble pulling our bows. We also want our students to have suitable comprehension and attention span to fully benefit from the instruction and enjoy their experience. We have taken students as young as 6 when a parent is also signed up to take the class with them.
1) Intro to Archery is our entry level course. It introduces a beginning archer to the elements of safety, terminology, history, and uses for basic equipment followed by an hour of shooting time supervised by the coach. Students only need to take this class one time. If you want to try out archery and see if it's for you, this is the course for you.
Archery 101 re-emphasizes the
safety aspects taught in Intro to Archery and teaches
basic shooting elements including: stance, alignment, bow
grip, anchor point, release, follow through, and more.
Class may be taken as often as you would like. The amount
