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.

2022-2023 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.

Dustin Watson wins U21 CPD Men’s World Field Championship

Dustin Watson is Canada’s latest World gold medallist following the 2022 World Archery Field Championships in Yankton, USA.

The U21 compound individual men’s gold-medal match was a nail-biter. Jevsnik (Slovenia) and Watson were tied after the first and second ends with 33 points, shooting on some very tricky target angles. The third end went to Jevsnik by 1 points and Watson tied up on the final end. With a one-arrow tiebreaker, both Jevsnik and Watson scored 5 points (out of a possible 6), but the Canadian’s arrow was closer, securing the win.

Watson was very happy with his result and was able to execute a solid shot for the win. Interviewed after the event, Dustin felt that it was a great learning experience to shoot against other top-seeded archers and he wants to come back to shoot more international events.  He thanked his family, the team coach and his supportive teammates.

For more details and results, please view Archery Canada’s website.
