Archery programs for beginners, women, girls set at Lake Elmo Park Reserve in June
Whether a beginner or advanced archer, join the experts from A-1 Archery to advance your skills with a two-part Introduction to Archery, starting June 5 and June 19, or a four-part series of Women & Girls Archery, starting June 5, both at Lake Elmo Park Reserve.
Newcomers will learn archery basics, safety, and technique; participants with existing skills will be able to fine tune their technique and learn how to score a spot target.
The program will be led by Dana Keller, NASP, 4H Archery Shooting Sports, and Level 2 USA Archery Instructor.
The cost for the introductory lessons is $25 per person, and includes both dates and all equipment provided. Participants may choose sessions on June 5 and June 12, or June 19 and June 26; sessions are 6 to 7 p.m. All vehicles must have a valid parks permit, which is $7 daily or $30 annually.
The program is for those ages 8 years and older, and minors must be accompanied by an adult.
This program meets at the Lake Elmo Park Reserve – Outdoor Archery Range. In case of rain and inclement weather, classes will move to A-1 Archery's Indoor Range. No vehicle permit is required here.
Women & Girls Archery will meet four times 7 to 8 p.m. June 5, 12, 19, and 26. The cost is $50 for the four-part series. Registration includes four nights of shooting, and equipment is included. Those with their own equipment may stop at A-1 Archery a few days before the class to check over the equipment and make sure that it fits you properly and that arrows are the correct length/spine.
