Movement and Archery Club

For the second year, CSDB School for the Blind students participated in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) during the after school Archery Club. The students had a great deal of fun and improved their archery skills. Their scores were submitted to the NASP and CSDB placed in the middle of the field in the competition with other schools.

The Archery Club members talked about the program so enthusiastically other students asked permission to add archery to the Movement class during block 3. In February we had an in-class tournament, shooting 30 arrows each, from 10 meters. The winner was Carl, with a score of 26. Carl also shot a 47 out of 50 during a practice round.

A student shows off her bull's eye shot during Archery Club.

Bull’s eye!

Carl shows off his high score target.

Wow! Almost a perfect score!
