CA: DFG Offers Spring Outdoor Opportunity for Youth Archery

Instructors teach basic archery safety and technique

The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) will offer a spring youth
archery clinic to individuals who want to learn basic archery
skills and spend time outdoors. The class will include fundamental
archery instruction, use of various types of equipment and
supervised shooting time at a selection of stationary bull’s-eye
targets. A brief outdoor stewardship presentation will also be
included.

“There are many outdoor opportunities available in the sport of
archery and we hope that families and youth will be encouraged to
further explore archery and get outdoors more often,” said Lesa
Johnston, DFG’s Outdoor Education Coordinator. “Visiting some of
our state’s scenic archery ranges is a great way to enjoy the
outdoor landscape and maybe get a peek at some of our native
wildlife.”

The Youth Archery Spring Fling Clinic is scheduled for Saturday,
April 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Maya Archery Range in
Roseville at 750 Galleria Blvd. This range is partially operated by
the California State Archery Association and club volunteers.

The clinic is open to youth (eight to 12 years old) and teens (13
to 17). Participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The clinic cost is $15 per youth or teen, which includes the use of
the equipment, snacks and lunch. Parents and guardians also are
included in the lunch at no additional charge. DFG co-sponsors the
clinics with the California Bowmen Hunters/State Archery
Association.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Those interested
in attending may register online at
www.dfg.ca.gov/yo/registration.html. For additional information,
please call Lesa Johnston at (916) 322-8933.
