NubAbility to Hold 3D Archery Clinic, Tournament

Adaptive training and open tournament for limb-different kids in Hermitage.

NubAbility Athletics Foundation will be holding an 3D archery clinic for limb-different children onย Saturday, August 12th through Sunday, August 13th, and a 3D archery fundraiser tournament on Sunday, August 13th.ย 

The clinic is for children ages four to seventeen with congenital or traumatic limb loss; the charity tournament is open to all. Both events will be held at the Old Hickory Lake Bowmen Club, 480 Shute Lane in Hermitage, Tennessee.

3D archery uses life-like animal targets placed along an outdoor walking path to create a real-life setting for developing archery skills.

โ€œWe are grateful to the Old Hickory Lake Bowmen Club and The Archery Den for sponsoring this weekend,โ€ said NubAbility founder and executive director Sam Kuhnert. โ€œTheir generosity is making it possible for limb-different kids to learn the demanding sport of archery while gaining a greater appreciation of the outdoors.โ€

The 3D archery clinic will take place from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Sunday.ย 

NubAbility is bringing in limb-different coaches from across the country to provide instruction. Registration is $149.99/child and $49.99/adult for the clinic.ย Scholarships are available at


The 3D archery tournament will start at 9 a.m. on Sunday with check-in and onsite registration starting at 8 a.m. The tournament is a fundraiser open to the entire community.ย  The tournament will offer three divisionsย โ€” adult male, adult female and youth (under the age of 16). Fifty percent of registration fees will be divided among the division winners as prizes. The remainder will go towards expenses from the previous dayโ€™s clinic. This tournament follows ASA scoring and is open to compound and recurve bows. No crossbows or broadhead arrows are permitted.
