The GF&G Club Youth Archery Program is based on The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) which was developed to achieve specific educational benefits of improved motivation, attention, focus, and behavior and to support wildlife conservation. NASP® is the largest youth archery program in history and currently serves over 2 million archers.  

Program Structure:

GF&G Club instructors are NASP® Trained and Certified as NASP® Basic Archery Instructors. Our instructors will lead classes which include set up, operation, and supervision of a safe archery range. The archery curriculum will be modeled after NASP® recommendations and will consist of training that is comprehensive and current. Over the course of the program students will learn:

  1. The basics of equipment and range overview, how make a string bow training aid, and the eleven steps to archery success. Students will receive positive coaching and, most importantly, learn safety.

  2. Individual coaching and instruction for shooting refinement.

  3. Fun and friendly competition through games and contests.


All equipment will be provided!  Archery Equipment used in NASP® is highly standardized to be safe, durable, economical, and most importantly, a universal fit for almost every student. The only bow used in NASP® is a Genesis® compound bow which has no let-off and is adjustable from 10-20 pounds in draw weight at any draw length. Only full-length aluminum arrows are used and to preserve NASP®’s perfect safety record. Finally, students are taught to shoot at an international 80-centimeter target face. While students start learning at a distance of 5 yards, we will move to more competitive distances of up to 15 yards.  

Any questions, please contact John Holt

Prerequisite:  All students must sign a waiver and be able to safely hold and pull a 10 lb. draw bow.

The youth committee will be teaching another NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) beginner archery class this fall.  Dates to be announced, but expected to be four classes in mid to late October. All classes will be held on Sunday mornings while ranges are closed.  This is open to new shooters and those that have already taken the course and want to do it again as well as non-members.  All participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for each class.  Parents are encouraged to participate as well.  Cost is $40 for all four weeks.  To register for this course, contact John Holt at 

The club now has its own NASP archery equipment!  The Youth Committee would like to thank all members and the BOD for this purchase and investment in our future.  Having this equipment enables us to be more flexible with classes and scheduling.  We are looking into and hoping to have access to an indoor range in the future so we can offer classes during winter months.  Stay tuned for future communications.

Youth Pheasant Hunt

Youth Pheasant Hunt
Our club will be sponsoring a youth pheasant hunt, in partnership with Mass Wildlife, to be held on a WMA (wildlife management area) in our area.  These hunts are a great way to introduce young adults to hunting.  Open to ages 12-17, the program stresses safety afield and provides an opportunity to interact with others of similar age having the same interest, interact with hunting dogs, to learn basics of upland game hunting, conservation, land management, and field preparation of game.  

The cost is free! This hunt is open to members and non-members.  A hunter safety certificate is required prior to the hunt, and all youth must be accompanied by a licensed parent/guardian. There will be a class prior to the hunt to review safety and what to expect on the hunt itself.  Tentative dates are expected to be Saturday October 7th, or September 23rd.  Those interested in participating should contact John Holt at for more details.

So come along, join in, have your child bring a friend, neighbor, cousin etc. and enjoy a day afield with them!
