Kids & Archery ...

Archery plays prominent roles in movies, TV shows and video games. Kids routinely see superheroes and Disney princesses shooting archery. They imagine themselves as Katniss, Merida and Hawkeye, and many ask parents if they can try the sport. Kids will think it's cool to shoot. Bows are featured in their video games after all! If archery intrigues your child, maybe it is time to sign him/her up for introductory lessons.

Archery is a great introductory sport for anyone of any age or skill. Many athletes shoot archery without having played other sports or honed any athletic skills. That makes it appropriate for any age. Archers must only focus on their form, not their individual strength or stamina. In addition, archery tournaments have age divisions for all kids who enjoy competing, so they can take their archery passions from the range to the tournament stage whenever they like.

  • Archery is the oldest sport still practiced today, and while the equipment has changed, archery basics is remarkably unchanged.
  • Archery gets your kids outside away from their phones/tablets where they can soak in that vitamin D and fresh air.
  • Archery can help your kids develop their ability focus, and concentrate.
  • Archery will strengthen your kids' confidence by giving them a skill that they can steadily improve upon.
  • Archery can provide a positive outlet for a competitive kid.
  • Archery can also be a great way for kids to develop new relationships like friendships with people of all ages and coaching relationships.
  • As a parent if you shoot archery as well, then you and your kids can bond more by being coached together.

Maybe archery is the solution you've been looking for. Ohio Archery Center can provide your child with the structured program that will improve his/her skills, focus and self-esteem. Today is the day to sign up for lessons. No equipment is required.
