The CBH Adult Archery Program (AAP) began just two years ago after interest was conveyed by club members. Similar to the JOAD program in the pursuit of achievement pins for distances and scores, this program is a bit more social in atmosphere and allows adult shooters of all levels to gather together and work on their shot with some of our wonderful club coaches.
While this program began as an experiment with a handful of participants, it rapidly grew and now includes 20+ adult archers. These archers come from varying backgrounds, disciplines and experience levels, from beginners to national competitors. These archers support and encourage each other as they learn and improve their skills, practicing together in impromptu gatherings between official sessions and competing together locally and around the country.
The Adult Archery Program is a logical “next Step” for adult archers pursuing this lifetime sport. Membership in USA Archery’s Adult Archery Program provides unique benefits including the opportunity to make new friends, obtain a great upper-body workout, and the chance to build self confidence and learn team-building skills.
Whether your interest in archery is purely recreational, or if you want to pursue competition at the local, state, national or international level, USA Archery’s Adult Archery Program is designed to help you pursue all that archery has to offer.
CBH is a private archery club whose privileges are available to its dues-paying members. CBH AAP members must hold current membership in CBH, either through an individual or family membership. Information is available at www.chicagobowhunters.com.
As USAA (USA Archery) is the sponsor for all AAP programs in the United States, CBH AAP members must hold current membership in the USAA in order to participate in the achievement pin shoots. Information is available at www.teamusa.org/USA-Archery. Besides CBH membership fees and USAA registration fees, there are no additional costs to be a member in the CBH program.
For novice archers, equipment can be provided on a trial basis. However, once a commitment has been made to continue in the program, it is expected that the archers will provide their own equipment.
