2017 Summer Camps for Youth Ages 10 and Up
Our scheduled session this year is:
Limited Enrollment -- Rain or shine at the Kennesaw Archery Club outdoor range on Pitner Road in Acworth
Classes Conducted by Coach Shantelle Mitchell
USA Archery Level 3 NTS Coach
We teach using recurve bows and will supply all of the equipment sized to the individual archer.
This is a week long concentrated course covering the basics of archery, suitable for those that have never shot a bow, or those with limited previous experience. We'll cover eye dominance, archery safety and rules, warm-up exercises, proper shooting techniques "basic steps", grouping, consistency, and scoring. You'll learn new techniques and skills, along with tuning up your form.
Advanced Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) archers will focus on tuning up existing form and National Training System (NTS) form. We'll cover various techniques including breathing, timing, preparation, finger and string position, and getting into "the moment" of the shot. We'll cover equipment reviews, quadrant training, blank bale shooting, and why brace height is important.
You'll experience various types of archery, such as shooting in the field archery roving range and shooting barebow archery without sights.
We'll also have fun shoots, balloon shoots, animal plate shoots, tic-tac-toe, and quick shoots.
