The club formed in 2007 with an archery equipment grant from Whitetails Unlimited. The club was supported by high school teacher Tom Wilkinson who taught NASP units in German classes and had a small group of students who practiced before girl’s basketball games on Friday nights in the MVHS gym. The First Street Community Center has welcomed and become the home of MV Archery. Over time the club has gained members and success through the support of parent coaches, community sponsors and grants. The primary goal of the organization is to give kids an opportunity to participate in a unique lifetime sport. The club measures its success through character development, teamwork, personal achievement and service.
