Youth Archery

Mechanicsburg Sportsmen's Assocation has hosted a Youth Archery Program since 1992.  The program was started by Mike D. Rider.  The program is designed to allow youth to explore the aspects of indoor archery.  As a youth, I myself participated in the program and it launched me into my passion for the sport.  After college, I helped out with the program for a few years and I officially took over as the Youth Archery Director in 2006. The program has evolved through the years.  The program has students that participate in local shooting events, as well as PSAA State Championships throughout the year.
