A Chat with The Great Olympian Indoor Archery Range & Learning Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Offering one of the largest and nicest indoor archery ranges in the Midwest! We offer 40 lanes for rent—34 lanes at 20 yards and 6 lanes at 10 and 15 yards. Plus, we offer…archery coaches and equipment rentals to [help visitors] learn archery. Plus, we offer Archery Tag (a mix of dodge ball and capture the flag).
What is the experience customers can expect?
A warm, friendly environment with wide open space to learn archery with [internationally] certified coaches, or bring your own equipment and rent a lane…to practice archery. We offer Archery Tag from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays–Thursdays and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Hourly lessons (including equipment, lane [rental], coach) Tuesdays–Saturdays.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We outgrew everywhere else we taught archery because the demand for learning archery has become high…due to Hollywood…, state, national, and international tournaments, and the economy. We taught our sons how to shoot and found all ages want to learn or become better archers!
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the kids so excited about hitting the target! No matter your age, you can shoot a bow and arrow. This doesn’t feel like a job. Archery is our passion! Plus, we have excellent staff who share our passion and love the sport of archery as much as we do.
