Warner Middle School Archery

Olympic Archery in Schools (OAS) has created a unique archery league for middle schools. Students at Warner Middle School that join the archery team can compete with other teams in the area. The program seeks to give youth the opportunity to participate and excel in Olympic-style archery, and thus open opportunities for them in the sport. Not only is archery safe and fun, but it is also a great way to develop focus, self-discipline, build self-esteem, improve hand-eye coordination, and much more. Our curriculum teaches the National Training System (NTS) which was developed by our Olympic National Head Coach, Ki Sik Lee. By teaching NTS from the beginning, we will be giving our archers the right foundation in proper biomechanics, shooting technique, and practice habits which will also foster a safe learning environment as they practice good form and safety before working with a bow. With this proper foundation, we hope that students will carry their passion for archery.
