"Our kids are on fire! They are having so much fun!
At the same time they are reaping the crucial lifetime benefits
of focus, discipline and confidence."

Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary.

Evansville Archery Academy is designed for kids grades 4-12. Adults are also welcome to participate, but must use the same bows and restrictions as youth.

Equipment: Genesis Original and Genesis Mini bows are used at the Evansville Archery Academy. We do not use sites or releases. Arrows are Easton 1820 aluminum arrows with 3-inch plastic vanes. This makes a level playing field for all.

Cost is $15 per session. On a student's first visit, coaches outline safety and range rules. Evansville Archery Academy provides handouts for archers to take home for review. Upon competion of the basic archery class, archers join the other archers on the shooting range.

Focus. Discipline. Confidence.

Teachers and parents around the U.S. are reporting huge benefits, both in the classroom and at home, when their children participate in the sport or discipline of archery.

Students tend to gain better focus, become more disciplined, and enjoy more confidence and self-control in the classroom. Why? Because the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is designed so that nearly every student can enjoy success in archery, whether or not they are the tallest, fastest, or strongest. The sport or discipline of archery is highly inclusive, and designed to propel students of all genders, abilities and backgrounds to flourish in every area of life.

Nationally-certified by NASP, award-winning head archery coach Joe Lagenour and his Evansville (Indiana) Archery Academy associates tailor individual instruction specifically toward each age group (grades 4-5; 6-8; 9-12) and each ability level.
