Professional instructors guide students through arrow-flinging basics in beginner classes that cover both Olympic and compound bow techniques. Twanging strings and teachers’ voices echo throughout the 7,000-square-foot facility as aspiring bowmasters age 8 and older let loose shafts at distant bull’s-eyes to punish them for unfailingly winning staring contests. The schedule divides classes by age group and skill level, ensuring that each student gets the full benefit of general instruction in addition to individual attention. Mental focus and physical strength sharpen against the whetstone of the gentle, low-impact exercise as students test their mettle with the studio-provided recurve or compound bows.
