Youth at YES were recently given the opportunity to experience the sport of archery thanks to the generosity of the Easton Foundations and archery partner, On the Mark. Youth learned how to integrate key concepts of the shot process while facing unique challenges that helped them to engage with the sport. For many young people, this was their first time experiencing the sport.
