Archery Programs in Arizona
Arizona Archery in the Schools Program
This program is a physical education curriculum designed to teach international-style target archery in grades 4-12. The core content covers archery, history, safety, techniques, equipment, mental concentration, and self-improvement. In addition, the curriculum provides interesting and creative possibilities for integration with core content in social studies, mathematics, visual arts, history, and English/language arts.

Archery Loaner Equipment Kits
The Archery Loaner Equipment Kits include everything you need to have an archery activity at you event (bows, arrows and targets). The kits are available to groups having a leader with the required archery instructor certification (a minimum Level 2 archery certification from USA Archery or be a certified instructor through the Archery in the Schools program) and must provide a certificate of insurance. Kits may be signed out for one week. If the group leader does not have the required certification, the Arizona Game and Fish Department can provide that training for $40.
Bowhunter Education is available online with an accompanying field day. This course is intended for experienced bowhunters to meet the education requirements in 13 states.
