Archery provides a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages, sizes, athletic abilities, and physical capabilities to build developmental assets. It helps to create a framework for
growth in areas such as support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations, and constructive use of time.

The sense of community developed through participation in an archery club can be an effective means for attracting new members for other corps programs. Corps have used community based archery to expand and enhance day camp programs, women’s ministries (focus group), after-school and youth programs. The spiritual component based on the National Archery in the Schools Program model that works alongside community based archery makes this an ideal means of evangelism.
