The purpose of Archery Club - at O’Fallon Township High School is to promote student archers, the growth of the sport, introduction and participation within the sport, within the high school and throughout the community of O’Fallon. The club will have recreational and competitive sessions. This sport will teach the members more about the sport of archery both recreationally and competitively. Overall, this sport is meant for students to enjoy the sport of archery and represent the high school and community of O’Fallon throughout the state of Illinois.
Nearly everyone can succeed of at Archery, regardless of age, size, or physical ability.
Archery program encourages physical activity, in a controlled indoor environment and outside range. Excellent after-school activity. Archery gives the opportunity for anyone to compete as an individual and as part of a team.
