Archery

Arma Dei Academy provides Friday afternoon PE classes for students, grades 4-8, and special movement classes for kindergarten through third grade.

Results from a 2016 survey conducted among 5th-8th grade students found that 94% of the 33 students surveyed participate in community or club sports for an average of three seasons per year in 2.9 different sports and have done so for 2.53 years.

This verifies that students and families seek out community and club sports opportunities regularly. It allows Arma Dei to continue to concentrate on what we do best (biblical worldview, academics, cultivating the affections of the heart, etc.) with the satisfaction of knowing students participate in community sports. It provides opportunity for salt and light interactions, etc.
About the Club: 2 Corinthians 5:9 So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. In life, glorifying God is our TARGET. The Bible tells us that God wants us to aim to please him. In archery, our target is a small yellow circle and the children must aim to hit it. The children in the Arma Dei after school archery club are given all of the knowledge and training necessary to hit that little yellow target. Do they always hit the target? No. Just like we all often miss our spiritual target, even the best shooters often miss too.

While at archery practice we teach the children to keep trying and always strive to hit their target more often and more precisely. At the same time, we remind them that the same concept applies to glorifying God. We will not always be perfect, but we should always keep practicing, keep studying, and keep trying to live life for God more often and precisely.

While most of our focus is on fun and enjoying the sport of shooting, we also help apply their performance to their walk with Christ.

Classes are taught by the Youth Archery Academy

Coach

Coach Kevin is a USA Archery Certified instructor who has been teaching archery to young athletes for the past 6 years. He has taught over 1000 students using the same methods created and used by the US Olympic coaches. He acts as the head coach during most of our classes and is also the high performance specialist for those athletes looking to become very competitive in the sport.

“I think my favorite part of being an archery coach is when you help a young child shoot their first arrow. The joy and excitement on their face as they release that first arrow never gets old.”

Kevin’s daughter is in the 5th Grade at Arma Dei Academy.
