Things We Do For PE in our Homeschool - Archery

We're just wrapping up our seventh year with a local homeschool co-op.  SEVEN!  Wow.  We've taken part in some classes at co-op that can count as Phys Ed.  This year, and three years ago, Xavier has participated in an archery course at a Pro Shop with indoor and outdoor archery ranges.  For just a few dollars per lesson, he has learned safety and accuracy with a bow from trained individuals with a passion to keep the sport alive.  Our co-op has offered archery for as long as we've been there and longer.  They have built a great partnership with the archery shop and we certainly have benefited from that.

 Aaaaaand, I have no photos of Xav at archery
 that don't show faces of everyone else, sooooo...
*insert imaginary photo here*

Ask around for co-ops that offer PE courses (and be open to the idea that you may need to teach courses at the co-op in order to participate).  Also, check with local pro shops that specialize in one or two sports and see if they have a driving or shooting range and offer instruction.  Your own local community is a great place to find resources!
