Registration Deadline is October 23, 2023
The registration period has ended.
To be eligible - your child must be in grades 4-8. WE WILL WORK AROUND OTHER ACTIVITIES!!!!! Our season is from mid-October - May/June, so we are very flexible. Our first practice is scheduled for October 23, 2023 at 5:00 pm at Sarto Catholic Center. Elementary will practice 5:00 –5:45, Middle School will practice 5:45-6:30.
- Practices are Mondays from 5-6:30pm and Thursdays from 6:30-8pm at Sarto Catholic Center. Archers are encouraged to practice for at least one-half of the time most convenient to them. Typically, the elementary team practices the first half and middle school practices the second half of the practices. Sibling families practice whichever time is most convenient to their family. Practices are NOT mandatory but are strongly encouraged.
- There is a fee of $40.00 per archer to cover expenses of the program. This includes an archery team shirt which can also be worn on spirit days. A fall spiritwear store will also open at the beginning of the archery season so archers and their families can purchase additional spirit wear.
- Bows and arrows are provided by Good Shepherd or archers can purchase their own equipment. Only the Genesis Original bow may be used. Please talk to a coach prior to ordering a bow!
- Meets occur approximately 4 times per month and usually on Friday or Saturday (1 hour in length). The meets are mostly local (surrounding coun-ties) with the exception of the State, National and “Open” (formerly World) archery meets for which we must qualify. Meets are optional. The only required meet is in January and is the qualifier for the State tournament. There are fees to participate at each meet which are typically $6.00 - $9.00 per archer (depending on the school).
THE NEW ARCHER MEET AND GREET SESSIONS WILL BE HELD AT SARTO ON OCTOBER 12 OR OCTOBER 17 AT 6:00 PM. ATTENDANCE IS NOT REQUIRED.
THESE SESSIONS ARE FOR ALL FEEDER SCHOOLS AND ARE DESIGNED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT ARCHERY FOR PARENTS CONSIDERING OUR PROGRAM. A PARENT QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION WILL ALSO BE HELD AT GOOD SHEPHERD ON OCTOBER 18, 2023 AT 6:30 PM
