What we believe in
Working with organizations across Maine to build safe and fun archery programs.

Who we are

Maine School of Archery instructors and coaches are passionate about teaching archery. Through positive reinforcement, we motivate students to raise their standard of performance while focusing on the process rather than the result. Participants of all ages will find the skills practiced during class will build confidence, boost self-esteem and stay with them long after they leave the archery range.

Where we are

At the Maine School of Archery, our team of dedicated instructors and coaches brings the sport of archery directly to you, teaching at numerous locations across the state of Maine. Our unique approach of not being confined to a single physical space means we can offer our programs in a variety of settings, making archery accessible to more people. This flexibility enables us to work with hundreds of archers annually, bringing a high level of experience to every program we run.

This winter we are teaching group lessons at Portland Recreation’s Reiche Center on Brackett Street in Portland and private lessons at Lakeside Archery in North Yarmouth. Contact us if interested.
