4-H Archery Club

The 4-H Hamilton County Archery Club invites all Hamilton County youth in grades four through 12 to join the club this month. The 4-H Archery Club offers young people the opportunity to learn the sport of archery and to improve technique and accuracy by participating in archery practices held twice a month (October through April). All practices are led by 4-H-certified archery instructors. Archery club members compete at the state level by grade level and bow type in the spring.

4-H Archery Club members also participate throughout the year in 4-H club activities such as public speaking, service projects, and the annual 4-H Piggy Bank and Art Poster competitions. Club members learn record-keeping skills, as well. The 4-H portfolios they create can help them win awards, trips and college scholarships.

Two meetings for prospective new members are scheduled: Saturday, Aug. 16 at 2 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 23 at 3:30 p.m. Those interested in joining the 4-H Archery Club should attend one of these meetings, both of which will be held at the UT & TSU Extension - Hamilton County Office. The address is 6183 Adamson Circle, Chattanooga, TN 37416 (right next to the Bonny Oaks Tag & Title Office).
