Lone Archer


The Capital Region Archery Club has a long-standing tradition of excellence in its education programs with classes offered to beginner and intermediate archers several times a week.

All of our coaches are unpaid, dedicate volunteers who spend countless hours helping individuals with obtaining and improving their archery skills.  Each coach is screened and undergoes a background check, including a Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check. All of our coaches have been trained through the Coaching Association of Canada's (C.A.C.) National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and have Emergency Level First Aid Certification.
