YYMCA Archery is a great way to get
local children excited about this sport. Participants will learn
about proper technique and safety of compound bows by shooting at
targets and various animal decoys. The final week, participants will
be taken to a wooded area for a realistic 3-D shoot, where they will
receive awards. The program is for children in third to 12th grade
and will meet on Saturday mornings. Registration deadline is Feb.
25, so don't delay.

As the weather warms up, the Y pulls out the paint --
Paintball, that is. This program is for kids 9-15 years old who
want to act out various action scenarios such as Mission Impossible,
Capture the Flag and 007. The YMCA supplies the equipment, so there
is no additional cost to parents. Paintball meets on Saturdays
beginning March 12. Don't miss out on this exciting program.
