Pour assistez les chasseurs à l’arc et les archers depuis 1983

Celebrating 40 years in business with:

  • Competitive prices
  • Knowledgeable sales and service
  • Staff with more than 70 years combined 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!

Quintin Fawcett leads the way at 2023 IFAA Champs

Congratulations to all our fearless archers who showed up in some pretty hazardous driving conditions to shoot the 2023 Provincial IFAA Championships at SNAC today!

There were many good performances today, with several PBs, including Quintin Fawcett’s 299 / 300 in the U18 Compound Division.

The Recurve Division was led by Shane Bryson (267/300) and Pam LeClair (266/300)

Our club results are listed on the link below; full provincial results will be available on Archery Ontario’s website.

Our next tournament is the Provincial 10-Ring Championship week starting on Monday, February 20th.  See our Events Calendar for details.

MICA at SNAC – March 19, 2023

We are please to add this tournament to our 2023 indoor programming.  MICA provides our club members and archers with an opportunity to compete against everyone else in the Americas while never leaving the home club.

This event has slightly different rules from the regular WA18M that we host – there are only 3 World Archery equipment divisions:  Compound, Recurve and Barebow.

No other indoor divisions are included so all compound archers shoot under those rules, for example the maximum outside diameter of arrows must be no greater than 23/64″.

If you wish to pre-register for the 10am line or the 2pm line, please e-mail Kathleen Millar at:  info@southnationarchery.com.  She will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

CANCELLED! Advanced Wednesday night classes

To everyone in the 6pm and 8pm Wednesday night advanced classes:

Looking at the updated Environment Canada forecast this morning for Inkerman, storm will start in earnest around 4pm.  By 6pm, the snow is supposed to be heavy at times, almost 1cm/hr, and the wind will be a factor, with gusts to +35kph.

In order to keep everyone off the roads and at home this evening, I am cancelling classes.

SNAS will invoke our class cancellation policy and issue the lanes cards for you to pick up during our next class on January 31st.

STAY HOME and stay safe.  See everyone next week.

Class Cancellation Policy

SNAC’s class cancellation policy is available on the Policies page under “About Us”. This policy addresses SNAC’s protocol regarding cancelled classes due to inclement weather, anticipated poor weather conditions during class time, and coach illness.

SNAC recognizes the importance of regular classes, but puts the safety of athletes and those driving them to class first.

Please contact Kathy or Larry if you have any questions or concerns which are not addressed in this policy.

PBs shot at SNAC January WA18M

Congratulations to all our competitors today.  We had a good turn-out as people come back to competition after the COVID-19 break.

Today, we had 2 outstanding performances:

Quintin Fawcett CPD M CDT shot 283/287, the 2nd round is a PB

Serenity Last REC F CDT shot 266(PB)/255, total 521 is a PB

We had many people who had not been able to shoot a 60-arrow round in over 2-3 years – so congrats for surviving!  🙂

All results from our site can be found at the link below:

Our next tournament is the provincial IFAA championships on Sunday, January 29th.  We have only 1 spot available on the 2pm line.

2023 Mail Matches begin on Saturday, January 7th

Just a friendly reminder that our house leagues and both national and provincial mail matches start this Saturday, January 7th and every Saturday until March 25th from 9am until n00n.

If you are shooting house leagues only, then membership is not required and you have a $10/round user fee to pay.

However, if you wish to compete in mail matches, then membership is required.  There is a new twist at the national level:  YOU have to register through Archery Canada’s membership portal directly – we cannot do that for you anymore!  You need to pay SNAC a $20 administration fee as well as the $10/round user fee.

If you wish to shoot in more than 1 equipment division/age category, you must pay the fee for each one.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday mornings.

2022’s last tournament of the year was a success

Congratulations to all our competitors at today’s WA18M tournament – it was fun to have so many people return to competition.
Special shout-out to Garnett Last who shot a PB.
Results can be seen using the link below, as well as Archery Canada’s tournament page.
Our next tournaments are in January; please consult our website’s Events page for details.

OUTDOOR FACILITIES are closed for 2022

We welcome our students and customers to use our outdoor lanes next year.  Opening dates will be published in 2023 when the field is ready.  This is a standard outdoor World Archery range:  70m, 6pm and 50m.

Distance markers will be placed at every 5 meters in the near future (from butts 1 & 2).  Target faces are installed at all times.

You must be prepared to share the facility with others who may be shooting at a variety of distances, as well as private lessons in progress.

Please note: Archers must be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of all archery safety rules before you may shoot on the range.  All archers are responsible to have active personal liability insurance.  This can be purchased automatically with membership in Archery Ontario / Archery Canada or OFAH.

Beginner Classes Registration Policy

Beginner Classes Registration:

Part 1:

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 pre-pay using our e-transfer information forwarded directly to your personal e-mail address supplied to us OR, 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.
