Want to get your kids outdoors and teach them a new skill? Then you should check out the Evansville Archery Academy. They specialize in teaching youth ages 8-18, and they offer a year-around archery "academy" that shoots out at the Vanderburgh Co. 4H Center.

Their classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30-7pm. According to Coach Joe, “You can ‘come as you are,’ because we supply everything needed. We shoot indoors and out, and even take ‘field trips’ to surrounding 3-D archery tournaments. We believe archery to be a great family sport, and encourage family participation. We believe our $15 per person per evening fee is very reasonable compared to other activities for youth. We have a great coaching staff, and we have a lot of fun! Archery is safe, builds confidence, helps develop greater ability to focus, and teaches discipline. No pre-registration is required to join us.”

Award-winning head archery coach Joe Lagenour is nationally-certified by the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®), and his program is tailored towards giving individual instruction to kids in the following age groups: (grades 4-5, 6-8, 9-12) as well as varying ability levels.
