2024 SNAC Indoor AWARDS Celebration coming soon

Keep watching our SNAS website news and event pages, Facebook page and Google business link for the date to celebrate!

We have lots of achievements to appreciate.

This year marks the post-COVID-19 return of house league medals.  As well, we have national and provincial champions, and mail match winners to recognise.  And, we need to celebrate SNAC national and provincial record-setters, too.

For anyone who participated in our indoor tournaments, mail matches or leagues at SNAC from December to April, invite family and friends as well to enjoy cake, presentations and and photo ops.  Don’t miss it!  Stay tuned.

Shane Bryson top in 2024 SNAS Nutrition Challenge

Congratulations to Shane Bryson, who topped all other students both adults and youth with an almost perfect score during our annual Nutrition Week Challenge.

All students in the advanced classes keep track of their food intake for one week in accordance with the Canada Food Guide, plus earn bonus points for reducing empty calories, fried food and caffeine.

Many of our students either improved or stayed the same score as in 2023 – very few did worse.

So, congratulations to all our students during National Nutrition Month and the annual SNAS Nutrition Challenge!

2024 Mail matches & House Leagues ended

SNAC had a much better post-COVID-19 turn-out for leagues this year and there were terrific scores shot both provincially and nationally.  The mail match results are posted on all 3 websites:  SNAC’s, Archery Ontario, and Archery Canada.

We hope to have a small celebration and awards ceremony in the late spring.  More details to follow.

Note:  With the end of leagues, Saturday mornings are now available for private lessons and general shooting indoors.

More about leagues and mail matches:

For those archers who want to test themselves a little more, but like the comfort of staying close to home in the winter time, house leagues and mail matches are events you should sign up for at South Nation Archery.

Starting on Saturday, January 06 and running until the end of March, from 9am until noon, you can participate in any or all of:

  • house leagues
  • provincial mail matches (membership required – sign up on-line)
  • national mail matches (membership required – sign up on-line)

All rounds are 30 arrows, shot at 18m.  We follow national rules for target face sizes and equipment divisions.

Cost per round:  $10.00

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.

2023-2024 Parking Reminder for students & competitors

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.

2024 Regional Indoor Champ Results at SNAC

Thank you, and congratulations, to our club members who competed on Sunday, March 03 in the 2024 Regional Indoor National Championship, held regionally at SNAC.

You will find our site scores with the link below.

Note that the national recording system known as i@nseo will not recognize 21+ Hunter separately from Masters Hunter (+50).  Travis Tyo shot in the 21+ age category, while Larry E. Smith and John Philpott shot as Masters.  The results are correct on the Archery Canada live results site – link below.
