OWL Archery

The Open World Learning (OWL) archery team is comprised of students at Saint Paul's Open World Learning Community school, located in Saint Paul, MN. The team is only open to students enrolled at Open World Learning Community school.

The team includes OWL students 6 - 12 grade, with a wide range of abilities and interests. Some students join to try something new while others return because of the positive experience and success they enjoyed while participating. Archery offers a challenge at every level  - beginner, intermediate, and advanced - appeals to all genders and is highly inclusive.

Our team is unique because it is the only inner city archery team in Minnesota, our school is smaller than most of the schools that host our competing teams, and unlike suburban and rural teams, many of our archers have never held a bow before the first day of practice. Still, our dedicated and diverse team is highly competitive and boasts individual state champions in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2023 and 2024, as well as First Place High School State Champions in 2023.

The team follows National Archery in the Schools (NASP) curriculum and our coaches are Basic Archery Instructor (BAI) certified. Archers are instructed at practice four days each week and travel to tournaments on the weekends. Both the coaches and students agree that this is a sport everyone can excel in because it allows for individual improvement with every arrow shot.  

And as one team member says, "Join archery and get 40 new friends."
