Club History

In the spring of 2001, a number of families involved in the capital region’s archery community saw the need for another archery club to help meet a growing demand that could not be accommodated by existing archery clubs alone.  These dedicated and passionate individuals came from all walks of life and brought with them many years of archery experience in disciplines such as bow hunting, target (compound and recurve), field, 3D and traditional.

That spring a search was undertaken to find a facility that would be functional for the sport, affordable and in a convenient location with the goal of starting a junior program later that year in September.   It did not take long before club founders located a suitable location at the former F.R. Haythorne Junior High School on Meridian Street in Edmonton.  Following several hundred volunteer hours over several months, the club achieved its goal and opened the doors to its first home in September 2001 with 80 members.
