Oakland County Parks and Recreation hosts archery

Oakland County Parks and Recreation will host a five-week archery clinic for disabled veterans and individuals with disabilities at Rising Phoenix Archery in Troy. The program is for beginners and focuses on safety and shooting techniques.

“We are increasing our adaptive recreation programs to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities including disabled veterans. We are pleased to offer this inaugural archery clinic because county residents have included archery among their top interests in adaptive recreation surveys,” Recreation Program Supervisor Sandy Dorey said.

The archery program runs Jan. 27 – Feb. 24 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. Cost is $35/person. 

Part of a new Disabled Veterans Sports Initiative, the program is partially funded by a $20,000 Fueling Communities donation from BP. BP Fueling Community Grants are awarded as a means of giving back to local communities to support education, health, youth, food and housing.

Call 248-424-7077 for details or email adaptive@oakgov.com.

Rising Phoenix Archery is located at 3863 Rochester Road in Troy.
