What Is Centershot Archery All About?
Centershot Archery is an outreach ministry of the First Christian Church of Golden City and is open to anyone Grade 4 through adult. We offer NASP International Style Archery instruction and shooting that strictly adhere to all NASP guidelines and rules. There is no other sport growing faster than archery and here at FCC Golden City Centershot Archery we combine this sport with teaching solid biblical principles that will last a lifetime!

Centershot National Tournament:
Centershot Archy holds a National Tournament in May of each year. It will be held in Kentucky and it will be our goal to take as many archers to this as we can. After our fall classes we will hold several qualifying shoots to determine what archers have progressed enough in their to go. We will then have Advanced Courses to train for this great event! This will be explained in greater detail in our regular classes.
