We Facilitate Personal Growth, Empowerment & Fun
Through The Practice of Archery
Our Vision is to be the #1 Destination for Learning the Science, Philosophy & Art of Archery, in a club culture that encourages the freedom to be ourselves in a safe & fun environment.
Insight From Hindsight
There are many ways to learn, including by making mistakes on our own. We can also learn from others, such as teachers & books written by successful people who have documented their learning journeys to help others. And we learn from those who have not become successful by avoiding what they've done.
Reading is one of my favorite ways to learn because it's the least painful. Gaining insight from hindsight is more painful, but also a great way to learn because it's so personal. As archers who strive to get closer to the "bull's eye" at the range out in our world, reviewing what we've done so we can learn from our mistakes is a powerful tool. Making a mistake means we're trying. Repeating them & expecting a different result is the definition of insanity but learning from them is genius. Let's all practice our genius!
Reviewing what we've done, the coaching staff & I are excitedly working on new curriculum for this upcoming year! And based on our insights & hindsight from last year's practices, we're also developing JOAD & Little Lions Club-specific newsletters! These will be more valuable to you, the archer, as well as the parents of these club members.
We're engaged & excited about all the fun & growth we'll experience at archery in 2023.

Again, Congratulations to all of you! We're honored to have you representing our club!
Tis the season, friends! The breath of Frosty-Aire is upon us, effortlessly nipping at our noses. This is a magical time, where the chipmunks pack their beds & the snowplows rejuvenate the roads... in one of those northern states of course. There will be no hibernating in Dunwoody!
In fact, everyone that enrolls in our upcoming Archery 101 Winter Session will be too excited to sleep until class starts January 8th! During this 10-Week introduction course, you'll not only learn about one of the first Olympic sports, you'll discover things about yourself while acquiring a skill that will last a lifetime!
Please help us spread the word about this life-changing experience to your friends & family by sharing our newsletter!
As if they were keen on our seasonal change theme, USArchery recently felt the need to change their logo because it was "showing its age."
Being historical is a badge of honor, however, there's nothing wrong with approaching 2023 with a fresh modern energy!
That's exactly what they did.
Here are a few shots of the new look:
Don't worry about having to update any of your previous awards or pins though. USArchery has encouraged everyone to have fun mixing the old logo with the new ones. Achievement award pins will be updated ongoing, so we'll most likely see them slowly implemented one at a time.
& Start earning your pins/awards like our other club members
PS - Our adults love competing just as much as our youth archers!
