Meeting the needs of bowhunters and target archers since 1983
Pour assistez les chasseurs à l’arc et les archers depuis 1983

Celebrating 36 years in business with:

  • Everyday discount prices
  • Knowledgeable sales and service
  • Staff with more than 70 years experience in the sport

South Nation Archery is a pro shop, specialising in archery ONLY; we are not a general sporting goods store. 

We offer a personalised in-store experience, the kind of knowledge and service you do not find at a box store.  We are here to help you shoot better and that can happen only with in-person service from people in the know.

South Nation Archery continues to train new and advanced archers.  We coach bowhunters as well as
recreational archers, local, provincial, state and national Champions,
World Regional Champions, World Champions and Paralympians.

Come join our classes, leagues, tournaments and events!

2018 Parking Reminder


IMPORTANT message to class participants and league/tournament archers!

Please remember to park in our parking lot whenever possible.

DO NOT PARK on the south side of County Road 38.

If the parking lot is full, please park on the north side of the road only, and east of our lane way.

This notice is very important during the snow removal season; the OPP will have your car towed away if you are in the way of the snow-plough drivers.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Beginner Classes Registration Policy


Beginner Classes Registration:

Part 1:

Effective 2019-01-13, all registrants will be required to pre-pay session fees when they pre-register for beginner youth and/or adult classes.

IMPORTANT information to participants:

STUDENTS / PARENTS must supply us with an active credit card number, expiry date and security code when registering for Friday night classes.

There will be no reminder telephone call. Please record the dates of your session and come to lesson #1 10-15 minutes early.

REFUND POLICY: There is no refund for classes. We endeavour to keep our class fees as low as possible so that families can afford to participate in the sport. Therefore, SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY will not provide refunds for missed sessions and/or classes.

Part 2:

If you have signed up for multiple sessions, you are not required to pre-pay all sessions. SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY realises that life changes and that pressing matters may arise which preclude your participation in the sessions you signed up for.

However, we must be advised in advance of your changed circumstances.

IMPORTANT information to participants:

In order to avoid credit card charges, returning STUDENTS / PARENTS must tell us they are cancelling all other pre-registrations NO LATER THAN the 6th week of Friday night classes in which they are currently registered.

There will be no reminder telephone call. Please record the dates of your session.

We regret to have to institute this policy. However, SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY is dealing with more no-shows while turning away other interested students.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Lanes Available during Normal Business Hours except during classes


Effective January to June on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays the lanes will not be available for general practice from 18:00 – 21:00 (6pm-9pm) during group classes.

The lanes remain available on all other days of the week during normal business hours.

2019 Mailmatches and House Leagues Start on January 7th


Join us on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings for a quick 30-arrow round of shooting!  We offer 3 options to our archers and you can choose one, two or three choices.

For those of you who are starting out shooting competitively and perhaps are not interested in sharing your scores with others in the archery community, we offer House Leagues.  We take your top SIX scores over the winter from the start date until April 13th.  We average your scores and rank you in-house.  Then we have a cake-and-ice-cream get-together in late May to present medals.

Shooting Fee:  $7/session

Archery Ontario Mailmatches allow you to share your scores province-wide.  Certificates are awarded.

Archery Canada Mailmatches let you compare your scores nationally.  Membership is required.  Medals are awarded.

If you wish to participate in mailmatches, there is a $20 administration fee on top of the $7/session fee.  AND, your first score of the week counts towards your average.  Both events run until the end of March.

For further details, please speak with Kathy Millar or Larry Smith.  We hope to see you throughout the winter months.  🙂

Results are available on our website, as well as at Archery Canada.

Our next world-registered tournament will be on Sunday, January 13th.  Phone or e-mail us in order to hold your spot!  Come join the fun and see you in the New Year.
