Sponsor: Lynn Treadway

 

We shoot several tournaments through the year at the local schools in the area.   We even won 1st place at our first ever tournament at Destin Middle School. We shoot at distances of 10 and 15 meters. Destin Middle School Archery is a club that is run according to NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) rules and guidelines.   We have two separate teams at DMS.   We have a 5th grade team and a 6th, 7th & 8th team.   We have this set up so the 5th graders can compete against teams their age.    NASP uses only Genesis Original bows and aluminum 1820 arrows.   We shoot outside and also in the gym.  Practices are usually on Wednesdays and Friday morning at 8:00 a.m.  During our season.  approx. August thru February
 
The head coach is myself.  Lynn Treadway, I have been teaching this class for the last three years.  I am a NASP certified instructor.   This year three of my parents become NASP certified as well and assist me with the class.  They are Jeff Tanner,  Sheldon Crabtree and Debbie Linton.  Safety is extremely important.  We have specific guidelines in place to prevent accidents.  This includes how the equipment is treated and maintained, our shooting technique and rules, proper ways to carry and pull the arrows.  At no time is anyone allowed to be down range when shooting is taking place.  In order to be on the team you are required you to meet a high standard of behavior.
