Information About our Leagues
All of our leagues are open to archers shooting either recurve or compound bows, and you are welcome to use your own bow and tackle (including arm guards and finger tabs or release) during these programs. If you do not have your own equipment you may rent a bow and tackle from us for a small fee, however arm guards and finger tabs must be purchased prior to the start of the program. We also suggest you bring a colorful shoelace at least 42” long to use as a finger sling. Please Note; if you are using your own bow and tackle they will be inspected ahead of the first league for condition and fit. Broad Head arrows are not allowed on any of our ranges at any time.
All leagues are paid weekly, held on consecutive dates (not including major holidays) and last approximately one hour. Please ask us about league plans that include discounts for multiple family members and multiple week subscriptions.
As is the policy with all of our youth lessons and league programs, archers under the age of 13 must have a parent or guardian present during league times. All youth archers under the age of 18 must have an emergency contact form on file, along with any other required forms and waivers. Adult archers may be required to provide a completed emergency contact form, along with any other required forms and waivers.
Minimum Enrollment Policy
Individual Youth, Adult or Mixed leagues require at least eight registered individuals to run. Team leagues for both adults and youth require a minimum of four registered teams in order to run.
Personal Equipment Used for Leagues
If you are using your own bow and tackle for lessons they will be inspected ahead of the first lesson for serviceable condition, and fit. As you become more involved in our leagues and other programs we encourage you to own your equipment so that it may be tuned to provide you with the best performance. Reminder: Target Points Only, Please. Broad Head arrows are not allowed on any of our indoor or outdoor ranges at any time.
We will make every effort to make sure scheduled leagues run, but there will be occasional times when due to weather conditions, we will have to make cancellations. If school has been canceled for the day check in with us regarding afternoon or evening leagues. If the roads are safe and passable we will try to get them in. In the case of evening storms we will send out notice as early as possible regarding cancellation of any evening classes. Weekend cancellations will be posted on our website and facebook page, and on local radio and television stations.
Please use caution when deciding whether or not you can safely travel for your league activities – your safety is our highest priority.
