Teaching Archery to the disabled would change the lives and the way many feel in this world drastically. As I see many disabled people that seem to feel hopelessness, the ability to try a new and uprising sport today, would help inspire them to reach their goals. These people include those who don’t have arms, are restricted in a wheelchair, deaf or blind. As a two time World Champion in the NETTA 3-D shot and the 600 round spot shoot, as well as many other local, domestic and international winnings, my many years of experience in the sport of Archery will guide me to make this a reality. I would also gather experts in these specific fields of disabilities which will help me better understand their abilities at a medical stand point to ensure not only their safety but the other participants as well. By researching and meeting with experts would prepare and aid me in the process of providing adequate attention to detail and a one on one training. This would allow for a unique Archery experience for not only the participant but for myself as well. Isn’t it time to give those who don’t ask for much an opportunity to share such a rare experience? Help me make their dream a part of my reality.
