S3DA’s Mission Statement
The mission of the Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) Program is to foster, educate and guide youth in the areas of indoor target, 3-D and outdoor target archery as well as safe, ethical bowhunting practices. The goal of the S3DA program is to provide archery and bowhunting opportunities for young people in after-school settings as well as with archery-affiliated clubs and businesses in the community. We provide an effective after-school archery program, focusing on Indoor 5-spot, 3-D and Outdoor Target archery and the certification and tools to deliver the instruction to youth. As a result, S3DA expects to see increased participation in 3-D and target archery by youth and parent archers using compound bows and traditional archery equipment while also helping to increase participation at local, state and national archery events. In addition, S3DA expects to help provide a basic understanding and respect for our natural resources, environment and nature, with a special emphasis on the modern wildlife conservation and regulated sport hunting.
Thunderstruck Archery S3DA
Thunderstruck Archery S3DA team was formed as a non-profit organization with a mission to educate and guide youth archers from the ages 8-18 in the areas of 3D archery and target archery both indoors and outdoors. Our club’s purpose is to help youth and young adults pursue recreational and competitive opportunities. Our S3DA competes in local, state and national tournaments. Our club has produced S3DA state champions as well as national champions over the years. Most of our S3DA archers are also USA Archery JOAD members, so team members practice alongside each other. This helps build up both programs and friendships among archers.
