Explore Archery Program Highlight: City of West Hollywood Recreation Services Division

As back-to-school activities are in full swing, new Explore Archery programs are popping up around the country. Implementation of a new Explore Archery program can be the perfect way to engage new participants and grow your business this fall.

The City of West Hollywood Recreation Services Division is in the process of implementing two new archery programs through the support of a USA Archery Explore Archery Grant from 2018.

Their adult archery program, Bows of Fury, starts this September and is a weekly drop-in program on Friday evenings in a local park.  The program will include a mandatory safety course, and themed nights, such as 80’s night, superhero night, and paint night. 

A program for teens, Bullseye Archery, is also starting up this fall. Welcoming teens from their Teen Center, new participants will follow the Explore Archery Curriculum, encompassing safety lessons and the fun and engaging activities. Teen Center staff are hoping to host a tournament in which they will invite teens from neighboring cities to compete later this year. 

Dana Abel, Recreation Coordinatorfor the City of West Hollywood shared: “West Hollywood (WeHo) is a unique city, in which its residents enjoy the arts, positive social environments, and a little friendly competition. WeHo Archery will be an awesome addition to the City’s offerings, and we are looking forward to expanding and continuing the program year round.”

Abel added: “The WeHo Recreation staff have truly found a passion for archery. A few of our staff love archery so much, that a few of us bought our very own bows! Since I am certified as a USA Archery Level 2 Instructor, I was able to conduct three (8) hour trainings for 19 staff members. We now have 19 staff who are USA Archery instructors. Four of them will be running the archery programs. I will be coordinating programs and staff.

“On behalf of the City of West Hollywood, thank you for providing the opportunity for the members of the community and our WeHo staff. We look forward to a successful program.”
