If you’ve ever wanted to test out your Katniss Everdeen skills, now is your chance. The public is invited to try archery as part of the USA Archery’s Outdoor Nationals at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, Indiana.
The Try Archery Event will be at 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on Field 22, and the community is welcome.
Participants will sign a waiver and receive a brief tutorial from a USA Archery instructor before shooting. All participants must be 8 years or older and will receive an event bag with a water bottle. The community event is part of the National Target Championships – the first-ever archery competition at Grand Park. More than 1,000 archers, including Olympians, World Champions and youth athletes, will compete. Fans will get to see the U.S. and Junior Olympic Archery Development (youth program known as JOAD) National Target Championships, which are used for National Ranking for U.S. athletes and the selection of the national U.S. Archery Team. The competition is free and open to the public. On Saturday evening for the U.S. Open Finals, tickets are available for purchase.
