Our friendly instructors have experience shooting all types of archery – traditional, Olympic recurve, compound bow, longbow and crossbow – and are eager to share their expertise and passion for the sport.
Our group archery classes primarily focus on developing proper shooting technique. As you advance, you will learn to tune your bow for maximum performance, score a competitive archery round, build an individual training plan and shoot with advanced archery techniques.
We see ourselves as more than just a place to go and learn to shoot a bow and arrow. Our mission is to help shape archers who will be positive ambassadors of the sport to their friends, family and the Tampa Bay community.
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.
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 shooting them.
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.m.
LAKE PARK ARCHERY RANGE
Tampa Archery School meets on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons at the Lake Park archery range located at 17302 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Be aware, there is a $2 fee to enter the park that is collected at the front gate.
The range is outdoors, so classes may be cancelled or postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

"You can walk in from the street with zero experience, or have some experience years ago, and they will teach you the proper form of archery. They are great with kids and adults beginners. I've never seen them use negative feedback. It's a welcoming, positive, and fun atmosphere to learn."
