It Takes a Village
We’re in on this together.
Pre-Covid, manufacturers were starting to feel the squeeze of declining archery sales. The sport needed a booster shot if manufacturers were going to survive. The majority were looking for ways to improve customer’s attitude towards archery, hunting and other outdoor activities.
Recently, due to Covid-19 inconjunctions with the laws prohibiting social gatherings, manufacturers are finding themselves swamped with orders trying to fulfill the need of outdoor activities. While the majority of the archery business is thriving, will be short-lived. Once restrictions are lifted, people will resume their lives, archery could once again fall to the wayside.
It is imperative that we take action now to help encourage archers to use advanced equipment. Once they are trained on how to use a sight, release, stabilizer, and peep-sight etc. they will have a greater knowledge of the accessories that keep our manufacturing jobs relevant. It will take the involvement of all manufacturers to show their support in educating our youth about advanced archery in order to maintain their businesses for future generations.
Currently, Archers USA Foundation has implemented a pilot program with North Dakota, Oklahoma, Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Just recently adding on the states of Kansas and Montana. With ten schools in each state (with the exception of Oklahoma sporting 59 schools) we are equipping with advanced archery equipment from Archers USA to help in the training process. By the end of the school year (where applicable), archers will have learned how to shoot a bow, receive their state’s hunter ed card, and be able to go on a mentored hunt.
If you’re interested in getting Varsity Archery in your state, please feel free to reach out to us. Our partners have generously provided funding for schools in your state to implement advanced archery into their program.
