Reserve Your Spot!

Everyone can enjoy archery, regardless of gender, age or athletic ability. It’s a great way to spend time together as family or with friends, and it’s a skill that can be used for hunting and fishing. 

Overton's Archery Center offers classes as well as comprehensive training in the sport of archery.

why should you try archery?

1.) It’s a lifetime sport

Anyone–regardless of age, gender or athletic ability–can shoot archery. Start by taking an introductory class, then grow from there. Who knows, you could be a future Olympic medalist. Or just someone who enjoys shooting bows and arrows with friends on the weekend. 

2.) Compete or shoot for fun

The choice is up to you! If you’re not the competitive type, archery is still your sport. Archery lets you go at your own pace, and you don’t have to keep score. You can enjoy it for exercise, or just for fun at the range with friends. 

3.) Archery builds confidence

Archery is a great sport for building confidence quickly. The feeling of shooting a bow and accomplishing your goal–whether it’s drilling a bull’s eye or executing a great shot–helps you build self-esteem and enjoy a sense of accomplishment. Archery is also great for improving focus, patience and even math skills. 

4.) Archery friends are the best friends

Whether you catch up at lessons and league nights or compete in tournaments, friends you make in archery can become lifelong buddies. Many of the country’s top archers have shot together on teams for years, and they’ve made new friends from countries worldwide. Archery is a universal language. 

5.) You have tons of equipment choices

Archery isn’t “one-size-fits-all.” You can shoot a recurve, compound or bare bow. You can even try traditional archery and go Merida-style. Or you can use sights like Olympic archer Khatuna Lorig, or shoot instinctively like Katniss Everdeen. It’s not just about bows and arrows. It’s about the amazing array of accessories you can customize to make your archery experience unique.
