Lee’s Summit West Titan Archery Club
Sponsor: Logan Kelim
Head Coach David Winslow

The Lee’s Summit West Titan Archery Club is part of The National Archery in the Schools Program(NASP).

NASP Archery is a unique sport at West that doesn’t discriminate based on popularity, athletic skill, gender, size, or ability. Titan Archery is a team sport, open to any student.

We practice through the winter and spring sports seasons, from November through May. The regular tournament season runs from January through March, with State Championships in March, Nationals in May and Worlds in July. Our goal for the team is to compete in at least 8-12 tournaments throughout the season.

All students archers compete using the same compound bow. With all equipment being equal, the growth and exploration falls on the individual archer. While we work on basic to advanced shot sequence and steps, a great deal of focus and learning resides in mental focus, self-control, discipline and patience.

Although we have a history of being a very competitive team with several championship titles, many tournament wins, and scholarship opportunities, the Titan Archery Club is also a great social outlet for many West students who have forged many lasting friendships.
