We are a Non-Profit Organisation, run by a committee of volunteers who have practiced archery at International, National and State level. Committee members are available at the range on weekends. We are a FITA Club and practice Target, Field and Clout archery. We occasionally shoot 3D coupled with a Field shoot. The range is open 365 days to members from Sunrise to Sunset. Leagues are run every weekend, as well on 2nd and 4th Thursdays. It’s open to our club members, associate members and visitors from other clubs. League winners are presented Cash Prizes plus a Gift Voucher from our main sponsor Abbey Archery.

Northern Archers also offer coaching classes in Recurve and Compound style archery. If your keen to learn the sport or are a practicing archer, and would like to sign up with one of the largest FITA clubs in Australia, get in touch.

COVID HYGIENE

Please wash your hands & spray whatever you touch and be considerate of every other member & do not risk their health, no matter what you think about the current situation. Every member is responsible for their own conduct at the range. Socializing is fine but please maintain your social distancing.

As a general guide (but not a rule) we suggest that Tuesday & Thursday become Older Members Days. This allows members of the higher risk category (Over 50) to attend the range with a lower chance of Infection. Of course, Over 50’s can attend any day of the week but if you are worried about contracting the virus, these are the days to attend.

If you suspect yourself of being compromised by the virus in any way, please stay home!
