Check   “UPCOMIMG EVENTS ”  for Range Closures

North America’s fastest growing sport is alive and well in Nanaimo. We are open 5 nights a week in the winter and the outside range is available during daylight hours all year with the exception of Wednesday and Sunday mornings. However, do check the “Upcoming Events” section  on the right for periodic closures during the year.

The indoor archery range is open five nights per week Sunday Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Access to the indoor range on these evenings is open to all NF&G members and their guests as well as Non-members. When the daylight hours permit and the weather improves these sessions are moved to the outdoor range.

Family/New Shooters nights on Monday and Wednesday are designed to meet the needs of novice archers who do not have their own equipment. In the winter months the indoors range opens at 6 pm and introduce new archers to the sport until 8pm (September thru June).  You are invited to come out one night for free after which the standard NF&G range fees apply.  This is an opportunity for the whole family to participate in an activity that is safe and relatively inexpensive.

Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights (6PM to 8:30PM) are available to members and their accompanied guests as well as non members who have their own equipment. Guests and non members wishing to attend these evenings must first participate in a Monday or Wednesday session for orientation and assessment prior to participating in these sessions. Standard NF&G range fee policies apply

Indoor archery range is open Sunday and Wednesday (9AM to 12 PM) for members and accompanied guests only. Standard NF&G range fees apply.

There are several types of competition available on Vancouver Island. The always popular 3D shoots includes a “hunting like” environment with life size foam targets placed on well marked trails. The targets include deer and other local wildlife with the occasional dinosaur, snake, or spider thrown in for spice. NF&G  hosts 4 shoots throughout the year.

There are also many Olympic/ Vegas style competitions available winter and summer sponsored by the many archery clubs on the island.

If you like outdoor activities and need a challenging pastime come and try archery.
