How Coronavirus Is Affecting Gilbert Archery
Although many places and events have been shut down to stop the spread of the Coronavirus, we feel, with certain precautions, we will be able to continue to offer some limited services at the Gilbert Archery Range.
Because of the lack of activities available during the pandemic, we would like to continue to offer Family Archery Sessions. These will give families, who are struggling to give their children something to do besides play on electronics, a choice.
We hope for good health for all and a quick solution to eradicating this virus.
Hey Women Want To Give Archery A Shot?

Gilbert Archery is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has a mission to use archery to:
"Through competitions and being able to coach younger archers, my communication skills have improved greatly. I have also learned how to stay calm under high pressure situations."
"Archery has changed my life because it has introduced me to so many new people and gave me opportunities that I wouldn't have had without it."
"Archery has changed my life so much because the whole archery community is amazing. Everyone is so nice and you"ll meet a lot of new friends"
"Being an archer has made me aware of the mental aspects of sport and has inspired me to study sports psychology. Archery has opened me to new opportunities and learning experiences by being both an athlete and coach."
Archery For A Better Life
There are a lot of things in life that capture the attention of youth today. Many of them, such as drugs and alcohol, are definitely destructive. Some of them, like video games and TV, have questionable value. Getting kids hooked on a sport however, is one of the positives. Guiding our youth towards positive activities is important, but group sports have seen a decline in participation.
What Has Led To The Decline
Several factors have lead to this decline. A higher level of competition at ever increasingly young ages, is a big factor. Kid’s can be made to focus entirely on one sport as young as age six. Another key component is the cost. Many families can’t afford the rising costs associated with playing in a team sport. Add the fact that there’s a lot more stimulation in sitting in front of a video console than there is sitting on a bench, and it’s not a surprise the number of athletes are on a decline. What are parents to do? Archery may be the answer.
