What is AIMS
The Archery in Mississippi Schools Program, better known as "AIMS," is a program designed to introduce 4th-12th graders to the sport of archery during their Physical Education class. To date, over 217 schools representing 45 counties statewide have adopted the program. Nationwide, over 3 million students have safely participated in the program. Find out how your school can get involved today!!
AIMS is structured for 4th thru 12th graders in our great state, so what will you do after the AIMS competitive season is over and school is out, or even worse if you are graduating school this year. Listed below are links that will enable you to continue your archery career as a "back yard recreation" or up to a professional shooter or even to the Olympics. The sky is the limit!!! Mississippi offers the greatest bow hunting, bow fishing, shot gunning, turkey hunting, and many other outdoor activities that are not only fun, but will keep you physically active while enjoying our Mississippi outdoors.
If you really want to take archery to another level, think about volunteering for archery work with our AIMS program. Schools need instructors and a lot of schools are glad to use para-professionals for the archery program. Or better yet, make contact with one of our District Coordinators and be a volunteer for Coordinator/ school project. Remember what archery has done for your life and realize what you can do to repay the sport that is "Changing lives, one arrow at a time."
