The Easton Foundation

ABOUT 

Easton Sports Development Foundation exists to further the sport of archery by bridging the gap between first experience and elite experience.

Jim Easton | Founder

Created by Jim Easton, the Foundations support outdoor and indoor archery facilities at city parks, schools, universities and sports complexes throughout the U.S. and provides programs to train aspiring archers, trainers, coaches and administrators. The first Easton Sports Development Foundation was created in 1984 with the mission to introduce this lifetime activity and historic Olympic-style sport of archery to more people in Southern California. The success of that effort led to the formation in 2006 of a second Easton foundation, Easton Sports Development Foundation II.

Varsity Archery is designed to bridge the gap between introductory archery programs and other archery disciplines such as bow hunting, and many types of target archery. This is accomplished by teaching new skills, learning to use sights, rests, releases, and peep sights directly contribute to the success of these archers.

We grant ISC’s universal equipped compound bow that teaches students how to use sight, rests, release, peep sight, and stabilizer. All the equipment they would need to know how to use in order to shoot field archery, target archery, and hunting.

Progress

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.
