We have 2 Indoor Ranges
Our facility offers two Indoor ranges for whatever type of shooting you do.
Our Indoor 20yard range is regulation size..
Our 40yd Range offers the longest shots indoors in Central Virginia.
Our ranges are open to the public and you must have your own bow OR you must have completed one of our courses to be able to rent our bows.
The Big Range offers distances from 20 yards out to 40 yards with stations set at 20-30 & 40.
We have a movable target for those wishing to shoot at distances other than 20-30-40.
If you have your own bows and want to use our indoor ranges, please read these rules and guidelines.
1. We require all who use our range to have at least a basic knowledge of archery and be proficient enough to hit a
4 ft x 4 ft. target at 20 yards.
3. Certain equipment that does not meet minimum requirements will not be allowed on our ranges. Such as, arrows with glue on tips, toy bows or homemade bows and arrows.
2. Shooting on our longer ranges is not for beginners. Our ranges are public and you may be shooting with other archers.
Therefore the safety of our customers is always our first concern. Any type of irresponsible behavior or violating our rules will mean your immediate dismissal from our ranges.
