Archery’s safety record is exemplary; so much so that *most school insurance policies provide coverage under existing policies that cover all other recreational activities. It is almost unheard of for a person to injure himself/herself or another person while shooting bow and arrow.
When one puts a ball in the air and kids get running, jumping and spinning around almost anything can happen. You expect injuries whether its turned ankles, twisted knees or torn ligaments. Archery allows students to be taught a safe, lifetime skill they can practice almost anywhere.
The range is designed with safety in mind. The space is divided into shooting and non-shooting areas. Only instructors and student-archers get close to the shooting line. No one can get close to the shooters to distract them and create a potential safety problem. All entrances and exits behind the shooting line are closed and secured.
