Enso Center Archery Program

Archery is one of the fastest growing activities in the US and an Olympic sport! Come try the fun challenge of Archery!

Our archery program was jointly started between Enso Center and Jay St. Charles of Pacific Yew Longbows. Jay is an archery professional with over 40 years of experience.

Tim Lemke has taken over primary instruction duties from Jay and has been Jay's student since 2008 and we are fortunate to have Sheri Rees teach Archery at Enso Center as well.

You will learn in a safe, positive and fun environment from USAA Level 2 Certified (Male and Female) Instructors passionate about sharing Archery with others.

Depending on specific conditions, you will shoot in one of four possible locations:

1) Outside on the Archery Field (part of our wooded 12+ acre property)
2) Inside the Cedar Dojang (outside, covered class area on the deck attached to the Enso Center main training facility)
3) Inside the Iron Dojang (outside, covered class area in the lower parking lot)
4) Inside the beautiful 4800 sq.ft. Enso Center main training facility (also providing Martial Arts, Yoga, Weapons and Tai Chi training)
