Conservation is everything.
The R3 Initiative is a program put on by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Its purpose is to help steward America’s natural resources. The stewardship is all about conservation. One way to achieve this type of stewardship is by implementing a program that promotes sportsmanship and recreation.
Recruit. At Archers USA Foundation, we live and breathe all things archery. Our goal is to make any new archers successful in their first experience with archery and to reduce less successful instinctive shooting process. Our goal is to make our reach to anyone, regardless of ability, to make them a successful archer!
Retain. We’re aware of the difficulty that comes with learning to shoot a bow. It takes patience, practice and a driving spirit. We’re also aware that in order to retain archers, there has to be some sort of immediate satisfaction, otherwise the new archer could get bored and never pick up a bow up again. We’re not willing to lose even one!
Reactivate. Some archers have started down the right track of archery but have left the sport due to being unsuccessful or finding a new activity they enjoy more due to their success in it. By reaching out to State and Game agencies, we’re able to participate in programs to reinstate lapsed recreationists get back into the sport of archery!
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.
Every bit helps.
