Did you know that the bible mentions the use of archery around 160 times? The bow and arrow was a common weapon during the time the Bible was written. Trinity Sportsman Ministries pulls from this huge resource to teach the students biblical truth while teaching them the sport of archery.
We began hosting youth archery clinics in 2006. That first year we only had 30 youth participate in the program through our local Plant City YMCA and now we average 200 kids per year. The kids that participate in these programs are provided all the archery equipment to complete the course. Trinity Sportsman uses the same archery equipment as used in the National Archery in the Schools Program uses. www.nasparchery.com
Over the course of the last five years several organizations have joined us to make our archery programs the best possible. Organizations like Unity in the Community, Plant City YMCA, Central Florida Buckmasters chapter, East Hillsborough National Turkey Federation and Ducks Unlimited chapters.
The clinics are typically a 3-4 week course that meets weekly for an hour of instruction. Student’s have a choice to participate in the basic or advanced classes. Each course will build the skills needed to become a better archer. This is done through skill drills and games while providing biblical truth to the students. Archery equipment is provided although each student can bring their own equipment once one of our staff inspects it and sees that the shooter has a basic operation of the bow.
