DNRE basic archery instructor courses scheduled at North Rockford Middle School

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment is offering free basic archery instructor (BAI) courses for teachers at North Rockford Middle School.

Each eight-hour session is for physical education teachers who wish to join the DNRE’s Archery in the Schools program.

Archery in the Schools introduces international-style target archery to students in fourth through 12th-grade physical education classes. The in-school curriculum’s core content covers archery history, safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration and self-improvement. To date, more than 360 schools across Michigan have implemented theprogram.

“Target archery is a safe sport, in which students of all skill levels can be successful regardless of age, size or physical ability,”said Mary Emmons, coordinator for the Archery in the Schools program.“Incorporating archery as a school sport choice in the physical education curriculum creates an opportunity to engage students who

otherwise may not participate in traditional athletics. For more information on Archery in the Schools, contact Mary Emmons at517-241-9477 or by email at emmonsm@michigan.gov. Information also is available online at www.michigan.gov/archery.
