Archery - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

Archery

Take aim in the YMCA Archery program.  From beginner to skilled competitive marksman…our program introduces archers to the joy of the sport recreationally while providing avenues to progress to the exciting level of competition!  Our goal is to equip each participant with the knowledge of range safety, respect of the sport, handling and care of equipment, proper shooting technique in an environment that fosters focus, improved accuracy, increased self-confidence and team building, while also progressing to the level of competitive archery competition.  We provide programs designed to serve both beginners (with little to no experience) up to the competitive level.  So sign up and aim for the bulls-eye under the watchful eye of our certified archery instructor staff.

All program equipment is provided for our participants.  First time participants receive a t-shirt.

$10 Archery Open Shoot Nights

Coming Soon!  Our $10 Archery Open Shoot Nights are a great alternative from hanging around the house and for you to get out and get in some extra open target practice.  We offer three one-hour times slots with a max of 6 shooters per hour.  So secure your $10 one-hour slot (by registering via our app or online using the link below), show up, take aim and get in reps in a archery focused space designed to improve your archer abilities.

Slots go quickly so please register online prior to arriving.  Registration will open one week prior to the designated open shoot nights.  Once all slots are filled for a time slot registration for that slot will close.  So register early and reserve your spot.  If you didn’t register early you can look at the offerings for that date via our app or the online registration link below to see if a spot is open with our minute-to-minute participant registration tracker.  Open to participants 8 yr old to adult.

Note: This is not a session clinic.  This is a single day, one-hour open shoot session.  An archery coach is onsite to oversee safety, give advice/pointers and oversee the archery lane (no designated or structured instruction is planned).
