The El Dorado Archers are proud to offer archery classes to the community. These classes are held on Saturdays at El Dorado Park. Classes may be canceled due to weather, other area events that shut down the archery range, and some holidays.

On your first visit,  you must take the safety class, taught at 11:30am. Sign up by at least 9am because it fills up fast. You can rent equipment for $5. 

Saturdays only
9:00 a.m. - 10:20 a.m. - Advanced
10:30 a.m. - 11:50 a.m. - Beginners
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. - Safety Class

Classes are one hour and twenty minutes long. You must have your safety card on you to take the beginning or advanced classes.

The archery range is off Spring St., north side, across the street from the nature center.  Parking fee is $7/car, annual pass is $50 (purchase at the nature center).  To avoid the parking fee, you can park in the neighborhood just west of the park. 

The safety class is held at 11:30 am on Saturdays and is open to anyone eight years old and up. We only have 15 spots available, and you must sign up the morning of the session. The sign up sheet is available at 9:00 a.m., however most people are showing up well before that time to make it on the list. If we are ready to open the sign up before 9:00 am and there are 15 people already waiting then we will allow them to sign up and not wait for 9:00 am, this is the case most Saturdays. Once we have 15 names on the list the class is closed.

After you pass the safety class, the beginner class meets at 10:30am. You achieve a score of 100 to move onto the advanced (at 9am).

The instructors are dedicated volunteers, very patient and knowledgeable.

For regular classes, contact Janet Dykman.  Ms. Dykman is a 3 time Olympic archer.
Children must be at least 8 years old.  The first five weeks is geared toward getting the student to shoot safely and consistently while the sixth week is a private fun shoot for the class with fun activities.  The cost for the session is $75, but you can save $20 by prepaying the $55 before the first class.  Class fee includes all instruction, equipment use in class, program folder, and fun shoot.  Class members also have practice privileges and equipment use at the other class times for Int./Adv. archers on Wednesday & Thursday

Want to learn to shoot, but need flexibility and can't commit to six consecutive weeks?  Save $15 off the daily rate by buying a six class punch card for $75 and use it any day class is being held.
