THIN LINE ARROW ARCHERY is a program hosted by Give2Those.org in collaboration with Reedy’s Archery in Middleboro, MA. 

 

The Thin Line Arrow Archery Program is aimed to help the physical and psychological well being of our Nations Heroes by introducing them to the world of archery. Our mission is to develop the skills of archery that allows them to enjoy the benefits of archery now and for the future.

In the future we will be expanding by introducing our Nation's Heroes children into the world of Archery. This will be in the summer of 2022. More information will be coming soon, here on our website. 

Benefits of Archery and Mental Health: 

 

Archery is a therapeutic sport which can help to motivate, empower, strengthen and renew our Nations Heroes through physical activity and social interaction.

Archery helps to sharpen the mind, improved sleep, reduce levels of stress, depression and the lessening of anxiety. It requires significant mental input, discipline, focus, concentration, motivation, self-efficacy and patience which encourages our Nations Heroes to look for new ways to change their habits and lifestyle. 

 

Archery as a physical exercise: 

 

Taking part in archery is a great way to improve your cardiovascular health. Strengthens the body, your shoulder, back, chest, arm, and core muscle groups all receive a workout when shooting a bow. 

 

What one will learn: 

 You will learn archery etiquette and safety rules, all aspects of using a bow and arrow, including, bow fitting, storing, handling, and shooting to include fixing any bad habits while developing your shooting form. For archers who already have some archery, Reedy's Archery provides the instruction and guidance to sharpen skills and improve form, focus, concentration and shot execution. 

 

Reedy's knowledgeable instructors will work with you to instill the basics of archery and to develop your confidence and competence on the range, creating a solid foundation of knowledge and skill that will allow you to progress in the sport of archery.

Plaque of Honor- Every year at the BBQ the previous years class will come out and pick up a Plaque of Honor, in Memory of the Hero that they picked to Honor. Then they will be the one to get the Plaque of Honor to the family or ask Give2Those to step in and help get it to the family. 

Reedy's Virginia Getaway in May for those who finish the Thin Line Program- Starting in May 2023 official date TBD, there will be an opportunity to get way on a four day trip to Reedy's Virginia located in the mountain tops in Virginia. This is a four day getaway will start on Thursday and end on Sunday. Everyone who completes the Thin Line Arrow Archery Program will be invited to attend. Once confirmed we will then email details as to where we will all meet. This weekend is about embracing the great outdoors, that means pitching tents, hang out by the campfire and enjoying stories with fellow Veterans and First Responders who understand what it means to serve and what comes with that service that only you can all relate too. This outdoor excursion is not formally structured, meaning it's a time to just relax and enjoy a peaceful getaway in the mountains where time is not a factor, but bonding with like minded men and women is. We looking forward to launching this in 2023 and will have More details in the future. 

We will also keep you posted via email on up coming events that have to do with Archery, as it truly is a whole nother world!
