Shop and Club

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

Celebrating 39 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!

Special Notice: SNAS will be closed on June 11, 2022

In order for us to celebrate Jordan Eastman’s wedding, we will be closing the retail shop on Saturday, June 11, 2022.  There will be no private lessons that day.

Jordan Eastman spent most of his childhood growing up at South Nation and is part of our extended family.

We are looking forward to seeing Kara and Jordan wed after the long COVID-19 delay.  Congratulations, Kara and Jordan!

OUTDOOR FACILITIES are open for use 2022-05-07

We welcome our students and customers to use our outdoor lanes starting on Saturday, May 07, 2022.  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.

Congratulations to the following archers who shot Archery Canada’s 2022 indoor regional championships at SNAC:

Tania Edwards – Women Senior Recurve – Bronze Medal

There were several very good performances at our club, regardless of whether a medal was earned or not.  Great job, everyone!

2022 SNAC Mail match Results – Final

Congratulations to our small band of archers who enjoyed national and provincial mailmatches after such a long break from indoor competition.

All results have been posted to the national and Ontario co-ordinators from our site, and we expect final results to be announced soon.  After the final results have been posted and we receive any medals/certificates earned by our club members, then we will arrange for a small celebration and presentation.

Here are the results from our club.  We hope that the worst of COVID-19 is behind us and that we will be welcoming more people to participate in 2023.

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.
