Bear Archery Continues Sponsorship for Scholastic 3-D Archery

Williamsburg, KY – Bear Archery has been a staunch supporter of S3DA since the inception of the program and the company has reiterated that commitment with the renewal of their sponsorship for three years. Bear’s support throughout the years has been instrumental in Scholastic 3-D Archery’s explosive growth across the United States and has directly contributed to the program’s ability to positively affect the lives of youth archers and their families all around the country. S3DA and Bear Archery will continue to guide the next generation of archers and bowhunters into a lifetime of enjoyment in the sport and the outdoors. Without the continued support from Bear Archery, S3DA would not be where it is today.

Bear Archery General Manager, Jonathan Lene stated, “Our team at Bear Archery is proud to support S3DA Archery and their great mission. Like our founder, Fred Bear, S3DA knows the future of archery depends on introducing young archers into this great lifetime sport. At Bear, our goal is still the same today, and that’s why we continue to build the most complete line of bows for all ages. We are excited to continue our partnership with S3DA and look forward to watching this program impact young archers across the country.”

S3DA Executive Director, Holly Helton, said, “The values of Bear Archery closely align with the program goals of S3DA and we are profoundly pleased that we can continue the solid foundation of partnership that was established so long ago. We’re quite sure that Fred Bear would be overjoyed to see the next generation of hunters and conservationists learning to enjoy the gifts that nature has bestowed on us all.”

About Scholastic 3-D Archery

Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) is a unique, family-oriented youth archery program which has grown exponentially across the United States as a next-step initiative to follow introductory archery programs. The mission of the Scholastic

3-D Archery program is to foster, educate and guide youth in the areas of 3-D, indoor target, and outdoor target archery as well as safe, ethical bowhunting practices. The goal of the S3DA program is to provide archery and bowhunting opportunities to youth in after-school settings, as well as with archery-affiliated clubs and businesses in the community. S3DA students participate in 3-D and target archery using compound and traditional archery equipment. Students can participate at regional, state, and national archery events and earn college scholarships from colleges and universities across the United States. S3DA addresses the need for a program to bridge beginning target archery experience and more advanced activities such as 3-D shooting and bowhunting. The program currently operates across the United States with hundreds of certified coaches serving thousands of young archers.
