Archery Program

The sport of archery is a perennial favorite in all of our tent-camping programs, and is introduced at many SCORE events. Archery is integrated for all ages and disabilities, and adaptive techniques are used as needed.STRIDE installed a 30 meter competition archery range on the grounds of SCORE in 2013. Having an official range instead of a portable target makes the competition fierce! The range includes shooting distance markers for 10m, 20m, and 30m with four separate stations.

Now we are happy to announce a stand- alone program offering this fall! Spaces are limited.

Where: SCORE, 2182 Route 203, Chatham, NY

When:
Saturdays, September 19th – October 24th 
10- 12 pm ; Ages 8& Up

Cost:We require a $25 administrative fee for each registeredparticipant. If this cost is a hardship, please contact Megan Evans for scholarship assistance.  STRIDE works hard to keep our programs affordable, but donations are dropping during these difficult times. Please consider making an extra donation to help offset our many program costs and cover someone who cannot afford this fee. It would be greatly appreciated!

*A current (within a calendar year) STRIDE application must be on file at STRIDE to participate. STRIDE reserves the right to charge a full price cancellation fee if you make a reservation and do not attend.

Meet Our Program Leader:  
Tim McDonough

I have been a STRIDE WOUNDED WARRIOR since 2012 . A lot of why I am where I am today in my healing journey started at STRIDE. I have been involved in adaptive archery since 2014, both shooting and coaching. Some accolades include Air Force trials Gold Medalist X2; Warrior Games Silver medalist; I was the assistant coach for AFW2 leading our team to 13 Medals over 3 years of national Warrior Games competition and the INVICTUS Games. I took State Championship in freestyle recurve men’s open for Colorado state 2017 and a regional silver medal for the NFAA northwest region 2018.
Safety is absolutely paramount and my first coaching philosophy. This is our fun time, our free time and we shouldn’t be getting hurt or allowing anyone to get hurt while we are actively watching our line. My second coaching philosophy is “ have fun”; if you’re not having fun if you’re not feeling the excitement when you hear the “twang” of your bow string and watch your arrow   Thwack!” Even more importantly is when you pass the knowledge of archery onto the next generation of up and coming shooters!
I will break it down into these 3 things :
1- Be safe
2- Enjoy shooting your bow
3- Love teaching others even more !
 I am ecstatic to be back at STRIDE as the leader of our USAA Archery program, and have great plans to coach this program!
