THE MISSION OF LONG ISLAND ARCHERS IS TO:
•PROTECT, ENHANCE, PERPETUATE AND PRESERVE THE SPORT WE ENJOY BY TEACHING THIS GREAT SPORT TO OUR YOUTH ON LONG ISLAND.
•TO MENTOR AND TRAIN OUR YOUTH TO BE SAFE AND ETHICAL NOT ONLY WHILE AFIELD BUT IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE.
OUR RIGHT AND PRIVILEGE TO HUNT IS BEING GREATLY CHALLENGED BY THE ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS AND WILL GET ONLY WORSE AS THE DAYS GO BY.
DON’T PASS THE BUCK! GET INVOLVED!
IF YOU ARE AT ALL CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE IN THE NEAR FUTURE AND ARE A SAFE, RESPECTFUL AND ETHICAL ARCHER/HUNTER, THEN WE WANT YOU TO BE APART OF OUR EFFORTS.
