Archery Styles We Teach
This style of archery includes longbows and recurve bows shot without a sight or other aiming aids. It is one of the purest forms of archery and a great place to start learning fundamentals.
However, it’s not just for beginners…there are world champion archers that shoot this style in competition.
traditional bows and related equipment are available as rentals for new archers.
In this style, a recurve bow is shot with the addition of a sight, stabilizer, clicker and other shooting aids.
As the name suggests, it is the type of bow that is shot in the Olympics and requires physical, mental and technical precision to shoot accurately. Olympic recurves are typically “tuned” the individual archer.
Students must have their own olympic recurve and related equipment for lessons.
A compound uses a cam system to allow the archer to draw and hold the full power of the bow with less effort, resulting in greater accuracy.
Compounds are shot with the aid of a sight, stabilizer and trigger device, and require the archer to be mentally focused, technically precise and have a bow that is uniquely “tuned” to the individual.
Students must have their own compound bow and related equipment for lessons.m.
A crossbow consists of a bow-like assembly mounted on a frame that is held in a similar fashion to a long firearm. Crossbows shoot arrow-like projectiles called bolts.
Similar to a compound bow, the crossbow requires sharp mental focus and meticulous technique. Each crossbow is uniquely “tuned” to the individual shooter.m
Students must have their own crossbow and related equipment for lessons.
