  • Archery & Esports

    What could be more fun for your teenager than a morning of archery and an afternoon of esports? And what two sports could better complement each other? Archery gives kids a chance to safely wield a bow and arrow and gain all the associated benefits of coordination, focus and pride in the skill of archery. The majority of each class is just a lot of FUN practice, but with structured drills and practice. Students learn a neutral style of archery that builds the basics of a solid form, aim and reaction. Easy to use equipment allows every student to achieve skill progress, without emphasis on strength or gender. Esports builds on aiming and coordination skills and adds strategy and teamwork. We will practice League of Legends, Hearthstone, Rocket League, Fortnite, and other games guided by coaches who compete at the collegiate level. We also teach game ethics and safe gaming guidelines, using computers monitored for the security of all participants.

  • Archery & Esports Camp

    What could be more fun for your teenager than a morning of archery and an afternoon of esports? And what two sports could better complement each other? Archery gives kids a chance to safely wield a bow and arrow and gain all the associated benefits of coordination, focus and pride in the skill of archery. The majority of each class is just a lot of FUN practice, but with structured drills and practice. Students learn a neutral style of archery that builds the basics of a solid form, aim and reaction. Easy to use equipment allows every student to achieve skill progress, without emphasis on strength or gender. Esports builds on aiming and coordination skills and adds strategy and teamwork. We will practice League of Legends, Hearthstone, Rocket League, Fortnite, and other games guided by coaches who compete at the collegiate level. We also teach game ethics and safe gaming guidelines, using computers monitored for the security of all participants.
