The Green Creek Archery Club, with the generous support of Norris Archery in Shelby, N.C., and the Green Creek Community Center, is pleased to announce its formation.  Started by Level 4 National Archery Coach Jim Vennera, the group is now accepting members.

The club will sponsor a money league, amateur league shooting and open shooting in the largest indoor archery range in our area.

The range has five shooting lanes with room to expand.

The current schedule is for open shooting/amateur league on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m and children’s shooting on Saturday mornings at 9 a.m.

Coach Vennera is a nationally-ranked archer, as well as being a Level 4 coach who has been involved in the training of Olympic archers. He has shot professionally and been involved in the ownership and operation of archery shops so he knows how to get the most from both the equipment and the archer.

Whether you shoot recurve, compound or long bow, come join the group Wednesday evenings in the gym at the Green Creek Community Center (the old Green Creek Elementary School) for some friendly shooting.

If you are interested in archery but don’t have your equipment yet, Coach Vennera will be able to recommend a bow that suits your size, strength, goals and budget.
