Straight Shooters JOAD

Coached by Kevin and December Lewis, the Straight Shooters is a team with a wide range of ages and disciplines.  The team is 30% Compound shooters, 60% Barebow Shooters, and 10% Recurve Shooters.  Their coaching philosophy is based on evaluating each individual archer and identifying the area that needs to be worked on to produce the biggest impact to their scores.  The "feel" at team practices is relaxed and encouraging.  If you are looking for a "nothing but business" environment, then this team will not be a good fit.

The Straight Shooters boasts 3 State Champions, 2 Current Indoor National medalists, several state record holders, and the highest total medal count in the State of Colorado.
