What we're about

The San Diego Archery House Meetup Group is open to anyone interested in the sport of archery! This class goes over the basics to Traditional/Olympic recurve archery. Classes are taught by Tara, a Nationally Certified Archery Coach, 3X National Champion and former athlete of the US Olympic Training Center. Tara started shooting in 1991, began teaching in 2004 and launched this meet-up group in 2009.
It's great for people new to the sport and even those with archery experience. We host beginner and Intermediate classes. We have classes geared to both youth and adults. Throughout the year, we offer one-day options and on-going weekly classes. We cover range safety, proper equipment selection, and basics to shooting. All equipment is provided, but students are welcome to bring their own!
This group is a great way to meet other locals with the same interests. We shoot outdoors and know how to have a good time while learning a new skill! 
Give it a shot! Join us! You will love it!

“ My girlfriend and I attended the “one day adult” class and it was fantastic! Tara is an exceptionally good instructor not to mention a warm and welcoming person! She went over the rules and safety efficiently and gave us as much time to shoot as possible. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested of all ages, super beginner friendly! ”

“ They're a good way to learn how to shoot a bow. Even if you think you know how to shoot there is always something new to learn and having someone of her caliber check your form will undoubtedly provide a long term benefit. ”
