Youth Instructional Leagues

Flint Bowmen provides several youth “instructional” leagues throughout the year to help kids develop an interest in and a desire to grow in archery.

We have a number of USA-Archery Certified Instructors and we’re not afraid to use them!

While the #1 goal of the league is safety, it’s followed closely by Having Fun!  New youth archers and experienced youth archers are able to progress and work their way from the 5 yard line to the 15 yard line.  Everybody starts at 5 yards and by hitting certain scores at each shooting line they are able to move back.

League Philosophy

We take care to balance instruction with just having a good time.  Many times too much structure will dull their interest and not enough will prevent them from progressing and we work hard to maintain that balance.

Fall Youth Leagues

For the Fall Youth League, pre-registration starts on August 1st and
it’s critical to pre-register and pre-pay to hold however many spots needed.

These leagues fill up very quickly.

There are three time slots for fall 8 week youth leagues –

Saturdays, October 8 – December 10, 2016 (banquet)
9:00-11:30 am or 1:00-3:00 pm

Thursdays, October 6 – December 8, 2016­  (banquet)
6:00 -8:30 pm

Members $48, Non-members $56      *League fees do not include bow rental*
Bring your own bow or bow rental available – $16 for the 8 week session

Kids sign up for only one of the time slots.  If you don’t have a waiver on file for the current calendar year, you must download one and provide it before your kids can shoot at the club.  (We suggest mailing it with your registration!)

    Can my 5 & 8 year both do this together? Is there an age minimum?

      There isn’t an age requirement, per-say, though there is a maturity requirement. Generally 5 would be the youngest and if your little ones are able to follow instructions, it should be fine. The instructors will keep an eye on the younger shooters and if they believe there is a safety issue due to somebody just being “not quite ready”, they will take the appropriate steps.

    So pleased with the volunteers and the instruction provided by Flint Bowmen to youth.
