Posted by on Dec 1, 2017 in Archery in Schools | Comments Off on Archery for Kids – GOOD REASONS TO GET KIDS INVOLVED!

Archery for Kids is a great sport! I think you can agree that extracurricular activities at school provide a safe environment for adolescent growth while preventing students from starting bad habits like smoking and drinking. Kids want to be with other kids, but let’s try to make this a positive thing!!
