Archery and Travel

What does Archery and Travel have to do with Girl Scouts?

I fell in love with archery thru our councils archery club.  The opportunities have changed since I started.  And my mom and GS leader are both instructors.

Since I am going to Cyprus, Greece with Girl Scouts this summer -- I knew I needed to do a much as I could to help pay for the trip.  So I am helping them teach a series of classes.

ARCHERY with Troop 1587

Explore Archery Workshop

This 3 hour workshop follows the USA Archery Explore Archery guidelines and activities.  The youth will earn the archery badge for their age level.  Enjoy the workshop, all equipment is provided.  Students will learn their dominant eye, proper form for shooting, parts of the bow, how to score and how to be safe – yet have fun.  Bring your friends and family for a day of archery fun – grades 2-12.

We are Girl Scout moms and daughters who are top in the state ranked barebow target archers; Carrie Rogers Casey and Kate Woodward Young have enjoyed archery since they were kids shooting arrows at the family farm in the summer.  These GS leaders have trained over 40 adult volunteers in GSCTX and hundreds of girls.  When their daughters and troop wanted more – these moms made it happen.  Troop 1587 has 9 USA Archery trained coaches.  Kate, Carrie, Jennifer and Justin are trained level 2 instructors with USA Archery – they have been excited to share their new passion for the sport with young students around central Texas. Over 1000 kids  have benefited from classes with these coaches.  Currently, they coach a homeschool archery team in the Austin area.
