7th and 8th Archery

Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow. While archery is facing a resurgence in popular culture and youth sports, it is filled with a rich history and tradition enjoyed safely by all ages and sizes regardless of physical ability. Target Archery: This type of archery is featured in the Olympic Games and consists of shooting at bull’s-eye type, multicolored target faces at a distance. Generally, target archers shoot 18 meters (about 20 yards) indoors and between 30 and 90 meters outdoors, depending on the archer’s age and equipment style.

West Wing is proud to offer this special program to its seventh and eighth graders.
