Pacific High School Army JROTC (Pathfinder) Sponsors Archery for Pacific High School.  Archery at PHS was established in June 2021.


Our goal is the advancement of the Olympic Sport of archery by nurturing existing archers, cultivating new archers, and advancing the sport through caring coaching and leading by professional example. Our team members consist of Pacific High School Cadets who consistently display academic excellence with a commitment to exhibiting sportsmanship like conduct on and off the range.


We utilize Genesis Original Bows w/Easton hollow arrows.  Genesis Original Bow kits can be found on Amazon for around $170.

The program outcome of the Pathfinder Archery Team is to give cadets an opportunity to participate in an alternative sports program other than the standard football or basketball.

The coaches are CSM Topasna and SFC Williams. Cadets will receive training on the basic fundamentals of shooting.

The initial training consist of the following lessons:

  • Introduction - The History of Archery

  • Range Set-up and Safety

  • Determining Eye Dominance

  • String Bow training

  • Eleven Steps to Archery Success

  • Archery Journal Entry

  • Safety Orientation

  • Range Operation

  • Scoring

  • Etiquette

  • Targets

  • Bow equipment 

  • Arrow equipment

Practices TBD

The practices are tentatively weekly afternoon from 2:30 to 3:30 at the Pacific HS multipurpose building (School Cafeteria).  Due to the pandemic competitions or tournaments are TBD, and pending the arrival of the archery equipment will determine the training and team selection. We anticipate the training to start in the 3rd quarter.

The practices will change to accommodate our tournament teams. The teams will participate in local tournaments and the state National Archery in the Schools and NASP region and state tournaments, with the opportunity to qualify for the National tournament. Once the team is chosen additional practices will be necessary. 

There are no dues to join the Pathfinder Archery team; however, funds may be required during the school year to help cover the cost of the equipment, supplies, t-shirt, and tournaments fees. Each team may be tasked and assigned a goal of how much they must raise for the team to meet expenses during the school year (TBD).
