JAMES CITY COUNTY — James City County (JCC) Parks and Recreation is offering a class for adults interested in learning archery.

JCC Parks and Recreation’s Archery for Adults class, for ages 16 and older, will teach handling and shooting recurve bows, with a focus on proper technique and upper body strength. Those interested can either be beginners or those wishing to sharpen their skills.

The classes will run in a four-week session on Saturdays, April 16 through May 7 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Upper County Park, 180 Leisure Rd., in Toano.

JCC Parks and Recreation has held archery lessons for both youth and adults for the past several years in the spring and fall.

“For adults, it’s a chance to either learn a new shooting skill, or revisit a fun experience from their past,” Wayne Randolph, archery instructor, said. “Many adults have positive memories of shooting in school, summer camp, or scouts. They like doing it again at a safe, controlled archery range, with equipment supplied, and an experience coach to sharpen their skills, or just get started.”

The fee is $50, and participants can register online here or by calling (757) 259-4200.
