About Ore Creek Archery

Ore Creek Archery was established in 2012 as a way to promote the sport of archery.

We at Ore Creek Archery believe that Archery is a unique sport that is available to anyone, regardless of ability, that wants to shoot an arrow at a target. It is our function as coaches to facilitate that desire through whatever means necessary. We are able to provide equipment to meet any special requirement given notice and time. Our coaches have a passion for the sport, and want to extend that passion to all who want to give it a try.

We are experienced in Adaptive Archery as well as the National Training system, the same system of shooting that our US National team learns. We are also certified as “Coach-Trainers”, meaning we can nationally certify coaches up to Level 2.

We specialize in helping start adult and youth programs for private clubs, municipal parks & recreation departments and private athletic organizations. We are currently working with the Parks and Recreation department of the City of Lansing, Michigan.

Regardless of if you have the passion already, or are looking for something new to try, Archery is the sport for you!
