EFGA Archers Climbing ! 2013
Strength, Focus, Confidence
While not a part of the Easton Fish & Game Assoc.'s Archery Program, archers and their parents are invited to try
indoor "rock climbing" / top roping, or just "Bouldering" one or 2 feet off of the "ground".
This activity has been shown to build Confidence, Strength & Focus, the same qualities needed for high scores
in archery, and throughout life !
During the warmer months, we go to places like Allamuchy (NJ) Mountain Park for real rock Top
Roping and Bouldering ! ( SEE NEW PIX ABOVE )
If you would like to join us, you will need to let me know via fone or email. These will not be formal lessons, just an
outing and picnic.
