Archery Club

The Big Bend Archery Club provides 5th and 6th grade students the opportunity to learn, practice and compete in the sport of archery.  Big Bend Elementary is a member of NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) which allows our students to compete as individuals and a team in NASP tournaments.  Practice times for the club are held during student recess time. The Big Bend Archery Club was made possible via grants and donations from the Wisconsin Chapter of Safari Club International and the Big Bend Parent Teacher Organization.
