***REGISTER HERE FOR THE CODP YOUTH ARCHERY CLASSES.****

NOTE:
Athletes are expected to advance from each level to the next in progression. Exceptions may be made only if an athlete can prove previous experience and abilities. The Director of Archery Programs will decide this. If an athlete doesn’t maintain the requirements of the competitive level class, they may be placed in the class equal to their proven commitment level thus far. If an athlete is not committed to using the shooting style used by the National Training System, then they will not be allowed to advance.
