Texas Archery Academy’s certified coaches helm programs to help everyone from budding bowmen to expert marksmen improve their shooting proficiency. Drop-in clinics instill the fundamentals through group-based practice, drills, and friendly competition, including distance challenges and air-guitar battles to the tune of the “William Tell Overture.” During drills, the coach elucidates the textbook progression of anchor, alignment, aim, and release, a system that not only increases confidence and sharpens ability but also breeds safe training habits. Drop-in clinics occur 5 p.m.–6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at the TXAA State Archery Training Center.
The 30,000-square-foot TXAA State Archery Training Center immerses archers in an indoor shooting sanctuary complete with climate-controlled ranges of up to 55 yards. Bow wielders can send their arrows zipping at a variety of bull’s-eyes, including stationary, three-dimensional, and tax-return-shaped targets.
