Club Shoot & Championship 2018-08-15T18:56:26+00:00

The SFA Club Shoot and Club Championships

At the start of the warmer months (usually in March), SFA starts a series of shoots specifically for our members, although it is open to all guests and the public.

  • This shoot occurs every second Sunday of the month, barring any conflicts.Please check our calendar for the most up-to-date information.
  • The Club Shoots are open to anyone interested in shooting.
  • Most shoots are free, except for those where the club incurs a minor cost due to the type of targets. These are noted in the Club Shoot Schedule (see the flyer below).

During the Saturday work party, our Member set up one of our ranges with specific targets for that Club Shoot. On Sunday, our Official Scorekeeper hands out scorecards for any archers interested in scoring and keeps track of all the scores.

The highest scores for each type of shoot win an award, plus archers who participate in all of them have a chance to win the coveted Club Championship Award.  You don’t need to keep score to shoot in one of these club events, but if you want to win an award, you must be an SFA member, participate in the Club Shoots, and keep score.

The Club Championship awards given to members with the highest cumulative total scores in all Event Formats for each NFAA age group and class (i.e. Male Adult Recurve, Female Cub Barebow).  Award winners will receive their awards at our annual awards banquet in November.
