This is where you will become familiar with the essentials of archery. The class has several areas of focus:
We begin instruction from the ground up, from stance to follow-through.
Whom is it for
All beginner students ages 9 and up must participate in one of our monthly orientation sessions. This orientation is mandatory for those students planning to participate in the ongoing classes offered by the Kennesaw Archery Club. If you are a Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) or Adult Archery Program (AAP) member of another club, this orientation may not be required.
The orientation class is also particularly helpful for those that have not shot in many years.
To find upcoming orientations, please visit the events calendar. Classes may last up to two hours. Please arrive 15 minutes before the session time to allow time to fill out paperwork and gear up.
Orientation sessions are held at our outdoor range in Acworth from April through October.
The cost of the orientation session is $20.
This fee is due upon arrival, payable in cash or check, made out to Kennesaw Archery Club, Inc. We are unable to accept debit or credit cards at this time. All necessary equipment and instruction is included. Your own equipment may only be used after orientation. You only pay when you come to shoot.
To sign up for the orientation, click on the event in our calendar to expand the entry. You will find a link to a Doodle poll to go register. It's usually posted about a week before the orientation date.
For each person attending, please provide the following information:
Also, please provide your email address and contact info when prompted. Be sure to hit "Save"!
The doodle poll will indicate how many students can be accommodated during that session. Those who register in time will be placed on the roster for that session and will receive an email a few days before the class asking them to confirm their attendance. Once filled, the Calendar page will note that session as "closed/filled".
Those who registered after the session was already filled will be placed on a waiting list instead of the roster. The wait-listed students will be notified only if an opening becomes available from roster cancellations, and will be placed on an announcement list for the next scheduled orientation.
For specific details on the orientation, send an email to email@example.com. You'll receive an instant automated response with everything you need.
Pre-registration is not available for unscheduled sessions.
Groups wishing to participate in an orientation may contact firstname.lastname@example.org as these are held as private group lessons, and available as the coaches' schedules permit.
Waivers must be signed by all shooters, or parents of minors, at check-in before getting geared up and shooting on the range. Please print the documents found in the following link and bring these to your orientation session.
