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.

Beginning in October 2022, Archery programming will move to the CK Newsome Center at 100 E Walnut Street Evansville, IN.
