For Beginners

Archery Lessons for Beginners in 2019

Flint Bowmen offers basic instruction for the beginning archer throughout the year at a minimal cost. We stress safety at all times when using a bow and arrow. Instructors teach the absolute basics such as how to hold the bow, how to load the arrows, and how to shoot properly. We emphasize the importance of proper stance and repetitiveness that is needed to shoot well and have fun with archery. These lessons are great for families, kids, ladies, or men who want to learn how to shoot a bow for the first time or anyone with very, very little experience and the desire to learn how to shoot a bow correctly. These lessons are not for someone who has been shooting for years and wants to get ready for the Olympics!

Please call or email Mike Alexander at lealexander@comcast.net or 224-423-2837 register for the class.  Pre-Registration is required so we have an adequate number of instructors on hand.  Registrations the day of class may not be accepted.

We start right at 6:00 PM so please come at least 15-20 minutes early to get signed up.

It makes it very difficult to conduct the class when students show up after 6:00 PM so you may be unable to join the class in progress. 

Classes can be paid by check or cash, we are unable to accept debit or credit cards.
