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 orientation sessions. This orientation is mandatory for those students planning to participate in the ongoing classes or for experienced archers who wish to become members of 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. There is room for 8 archers in each class. We are unable to reserve or hold spots, and they will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive between 4:00 and 4:15 to fill out the paperwork. Orientation begins at 4:30. Late arrivals may not be admitted to the class.
