    Default Memphis, TN - FREE - "faith based" Youth/Developmental Archery

    It has taken some time and doing but I am happy to announce
    Good Shepherd United Methodist Church's Youth & Developmental Archery Program is
    welcoming the public at large to join us in archery fellowship.

    We meet (most) Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 8pm.


    There is a brief scripture lesson from the Arrow Faith Curriculum developed by NADA and then we shoot.

    We shoot in the gymnasium if it's "too hot" or "too cold", raining/inclement weather.
    We try to shoot outdoors whenever it's pleasant enough outside.

    We are at:

    Good Shepherd U.M.C.
    6050 Summer Ave.
    Memphis, TN 38134
    (901)386-2212


    All coaches are NFAA Certified and/or NFAA State Champions or Ordained Clergy


    We have equipment to use, or bring your own.


    There is no cost to shoot, EVER!


    Hope to see you there!


    For more specific details,
    My personal cell number is:
    (901)283-5890

    THIS is getting down to the kids level...

    My daughter, (the current NFAA Cub Female Freestyle - State Champion ;-) coaching our youngest member.

    As you can see she's doing pretty well, for a 5 year old.
    We hope that she can compete at Nationals this year.

    This girl can SHOOT. She came to us about 8 months ago, never picked up a bow in her life, never even heard of archery until she say the sign on the church marquee (my avatar)

    She has aspirations of shooting in the State Championships next month. I think she has a chance....

    BTW she's shooting a 30# PSE Recurve

    here is young lady who is currently wheelchair bound and has been shooting with us for a while. she has found an activity and social setting where she can "stand on her own" despite her limitations.

    I'm happy to say she is doing QUITE well.

    She is currently shooting a 25# Browning and is really trying to build up her strenght to shoot the shiny red Mystic that used to belong to one of our member.

    Whe hope to get her out on the 3D range soon as the ground dries up enough to allow the chair to traverse the course.

    Here are Matt & Alan not related but I call them my "Ritalin Twins"


    And a poseur-shot one of my "rounds".



    Our "game" is you step to the line and get one shot, and only one shot on each animal. One of our critters is out being fitted for a wooden stand so we can shoot it inside and thus loose less arrows to the troll that lives in the woods behind our range and eats our arrows.
