Coach Brown, Coach Philip and Coach Roberta hope that all of you are doing well, are safe and staying healthy during this time of COVID-19.
Our Saturday Classes are sponsored by CAMBA Beacon and located at Eagle Academy IS/271. However, as this incredibly different school year begins, the resumption of afterschool programming is paused pending decisions still to be made by the Department of Education and, as it relates to our archery program, by CAMBA and The Children’s Aide Society. Once these decisions are made, we will have a better idea of what we can offer.
Our program’s number one priority has always been safety first, second and third. Rest assured, that when we are able to resume archery classes, we will do so with an abundance of caution and care for the safety and wellbeing of our archers and coaches. Stay tuned…
About our program:
These Saturday Archery Classes with Coach Larry Brown and Coach Philip are sponsored by CAMBA Beacon and held at IS 271/Eagle Academy.
The Saturday classes are structured to introduce students to archery and to support skills development. Eight session cycles will be offered to 15 beginning archers. The smaller class and concentrated time allows for more focused attention to the fundamentals of archery. Advanced students meet later on Saturday with a continued focus on honing their skills.
Some advanced students do become Center Shot Archers but this is not an automatic thing. It only happens as a result of the archer’s
- commitment to archery and to being a world class archer
- diligent effort (this includes school, home and community)
- hard work
- consistent practice outside of the Saturday class
- participation in local and national tournaments
- and in the best of worlds…strong family support.
