Membership

Our archery club boasts a membership roster of 300+ people, many including families. Membership benefits include: access to the Clubhouse, access to member-only parking, and discounts on SFA-logo gear. 

The day-to-day needs of the club are run by the Board of Officers, who are members that are elected annually by the general membership.  These officers run the daily activities such as range captain, scorekeeper, treasurer, secretary, webmaster, etc.

We would love to have you join us as an SFA member.  The membership year begins January 1st and ends December 31st.  New members who join mid year pay a pro-rated rate.
