Archery is not just a job for Jeremy Oster, it is a lifelong passion that is helping him motivate and inspire individuals across the Stateline. Jeremy, President of Hononegah Archery Inc., founded Hononegah Archery to be able to share his passion and continue to make archery more accessible to all students, including those with special needs. Jeremy said, “Archery is one of the only sports where children with special needs can compete with their mainstream peers making it the breakfast club of sports.”
Jeremy is a USA Archery Level III (NTS) Junior Olympic Archery Coach, as well as a Nation Archery in the Schools program trainer. These qualifications allow him to train and license school teachers for grades 3-10. He wants to make sure all students have an opportunity to compete, earn their sport’s letter, and even qualify for a scholarship.
Hononegah Archery holds classes every Tuesday 6-7 pm in Settlers Park or at their new indoor range. They are preparing to hold their first fundraiser, “Julie’s Archers For Autism” to benefit the Waisman Research Center in Madison. The event will be held from 2-10 pm on July 14th at Settlers park. Jeremy asked that from 2-4 pm the event be reserved for those with special needs and their families. This is to ensure a safe and enjoyable setting for anyone who is impacted by sensory processing disorders.
