Aim High and Let Her Fly - Archery 101
Archery is coming to Academy of the Holy Names! Coach Taylor and Coach Doyle are certified by the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) as archery instructors and will be following that curriculum.
Students are taught whistle signals, which are used to move to various taped lines on the range floor or ground to “get bows,” “shoot,” and “go get arrows.” They learn how to determine their “Dominant Eye” and make a “String Bow®” training aid to learn the “Eleven Steps to Archery Success”--archer form, shot execution, and follow-through. Finally, instructors will explain inspection, maintenance and operation of the bows and arrows.
First and foremost, in each NASP® school program comes safety. It just so happens that according to the National Safety Council, archery is safer than every ball sport offered in schools, except...table tennis. Safety and range set up is replete throughout NASP®. The program is safe and fun!
