Welcome to the 2015 World Archery Youth Championships! On behalf of our great city, situated on the wild and scenic Missouri River, we would like to welcome you to friendly Yankton, South Dakota, USA. It has been our dream, since the inception of the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center, to host an event of this magnitude. We understand the dedication and hard work it has taken for all participants to qualify and compete in this tournament. We are excited to provide, all of these deserving student athletes, the experience of a lifetime.
We expect your experiences in the community and at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center will be first class. We hope you will take advantage of our community’s restaurants, shops, and beautiful green spaces located throughout the community. If you have not walked across the historic double-deck Meridian Bridge to take in the Missouri River scenery from over the water, either on the lower or upper deck, then you are missing one of Yankton’s unique experiences. In South Dakota, the outdoors are not only a place to spend quality time with friends and family, but is a lifestyle that includes hunting, fishing, walking, running, biking, hiking, and of course, shooting archery.
The local committee is working diligently to offer all archers, coaches and spectators the full South Dakota experience. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we reveal special events that will be held throughout the week. We will continue to add exciting information to the event site over the next couple months, including post event excursions to Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. Registration will open on January 15, 2015.
We hope the Youth Championships are the first of many World tournaments that will take place in our community. We would love to welcome you back to our community in the future as you grow into adult archers competing for World titles!
We look forward to welcoming you in June. Best of luck in your training, preparation and travel for the 2015 World Archery Youth Championships!
