Club Information:

Archery Club runs from October-January. We practice through those months for our regional tournament that usually occurs on January 4th. The Archery Club will also compete in multiple in-house tournaments. Additional/optional tournaments may occur that may include additional fees. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays this year from 4pm-5:30pm in the school’s cafeteria, and sometimes in the gym. Students do not need their own equipment to participate but are welcome to bring their own regulation bows. The club fee covers a t-shirt, equipment upkeep, and tournament fees.

Club members are expected to attend most practices, attend the regional tournament in January, to be picked up on time, to pass all classes, and to have no major discipline issues.

Club Fee: $50 (additional tournament fees may occur)

Time: Tuesdays/Thursdays from 4pm-5:30pm

Where: YDMS Cafeteria

         

The YDMS archery team is based on the National Archery in the Schools Program [NASP®]. It is international, Olympic style target archery. The program is highly structured with close and direct supervision. To be clear, this is not a hunting program. Per NASP® regulations, the sport focuses on safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration, physical fitness, and self-improvement. Students are encouraged to focus on 11 steps to archery success, based on form and shot execution; it’s more than just arrow scores. Students shoot indoors at 80 cm bulls-eye targets placed in front of an arrow curtain. Shooting distances are 10 meters and 15 meters.

This is the sixth year for the program and the major focus is building the interest and skill for archery with intent to compete locally and at the state level or higher!
