On Thursday Nights we offer an introduction to archery drop-in class. Designed especially for the new archer, this is the perfect way to experience archery. You are guided through the fun of picking up a bow for the first time (or in a long time), and leave with the confidence of having a well-rounded introduction. All equipment is included, or you may bring your own. The 90 minute session includes a brief discussion of safety and equipment, range etiquette, and the fundamentals of how to shoot.
This program is open to the general public, and costs $5 per person.
Our winter schedule starts November 5th and will run through the end of February. We have one session every Thursday night from 6:30 – 8:30. A parent or guardian must be present for all children under the age of 18. Children must be at least 8 years old to participate. For safety reasons we limit each session to a maximum of 30 active participants. Spots are assigned on a first come first serve basis. If you want to guarantee a spot please sign up via our online registration tool.
Prior to shooting, a brief safety video is mandatory for anyone who is new to archery or the Skookum range. The safety presentation will start promptly at 6:30 please plan to arrive early so you can get signed up before they start. If the safety presentation has started when you arrive we ask that you find a seat quietly and we will restart the presentation from the beginning to cover what you missed.
