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 fifth 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!
