Archery

Archery Range
The Greater Springfield Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) provides young men and women the opportunity to learn and compete in the sport of archery with recreational shooting up to the possibility of competing in the Olympics, Paralympics or World Championships. 

Pathway of Development lays out the approach that we use to develop the athlete from just learning the sport to becoming an elite archer ready to compete nationally.

We have both indoor and outdoor sessions. These programs provide strong fundamental foundation techniques for the archers to learn the sport correctly and safely. Archery is a lifetime sport.
