It’s Time to Register for Centershot Archery 2016!

You don’t want to miss this exciting new season of archery at Common Ground!  Centershot is a Christian archery ministry aimed at teaching young and old the fundamental skills of archery.  We will learn the 11 step sequence for good shooting, safety and hunting skills from the Indiana Wild Turkey Federation’s “Jakes” program, and Bible lessons about God’s love for us.

Registration is only $55 and you DO NOT NEED TO OWN ARCHERY EQUIPMENT to participate.  You will using be our Genesis bows, our arrows, and our targets.  Our equipment is great for learners as our bows adjust to each person’s draw length.  There are even mini-genesis bows for the little guys and gals!

Shooters will be required to used the Genesis bows provided free of charge during the league.  If you have purchased a starter package (below), you will be allowed to use your personal Genesis bow. If you or  your student owns your own bow and want to use that bow during Centershot, you can bring your bow to the assessment day for evaluation.  You must prove your ability to shoot the bow accurately and the bow must pass a rigorous inspection for safety.  Centershot holds the right to deny the request to use a personal bow.

Centershot is open to Kindergartners through Sr. Citizens!  (Parents of Children 3rd grade and below MUST BE PRESENT with their children during Centershot.)   Centershot is also a great FAMILY event.  So, parents are welcome to register and participate with their children.

Different Leagues for Different Levels of Archery Experience!

This year we will offer two leagues.. Beginning shooters Ages 5 to 10 and Experienced Shooters Ages 8 to 100.  Students ages 8 to 10 will be evaluated for skill and recommended into one of the two leagues.  Skill assessment day will be held on June 25th from 9 AM to Noon.  We are happy to work with families to make sure all your family is shooting in the same league.
