Welcome to Illawarra Archers
Back to normal!
Following changes to the NSW public health orders, our club is back to full operations.
Thursday Twilight Shoots (over the daylight saving period) and Saturday Shoots have resumed and are open to all club members and members of other clubs.
Welcome back to Archery!
COVID Update (November 2021) - Back to normal!
Twilight Shoots and Saturday Shoots have resumed! But sadly only for fully vaccinated people in until 15th December in compliance with current NSW COVID-19 public health orders.
We hope and expect the Twilight Shoot on 16th December and Club Shoot on 18th December will be open to everyone.
Our club grounds remain open to all members for private practice regardless of vaccination status.
New bookings for Beginner Courses and Try Archery sessions will be available from February 2022, subject to NSW Health advice at that time.
Welcome back to Archery!
COVID Update (October 2021) - Coming out of Lockdown
Though almost all Club events and activities have been on hold during COVID lockdown, we are glad that our ranges have remained open to our members for private practice, exercise, and recreation (within the limits set out in NSW Health Orders).
As NSW vaccination targets are reached and restrictions are reduced, especially for fully vaccinated people, Club activities will be able to resume.
Some Come & Try Archery programs, and Beginner Courses, that have been fully booked before lockdown, will now resume.
Further programs and courses, as well as Club Shoots, are now being scheduled. Please check back regularly for updates as archery life returns to normal.
COVID Update (July 2021) - Courses Rescheduled
NSW lockdown restrictions require us to close our grounds to non-members once again. All Come 'n' Try and Beginners' courses have been rescheduled to later in the year. Hopefully the lockdown restrictions will expire in time to allow them to proceed without further delays.
We are contacting everyone already registered for the affected courses by e-mail to reschedule. Please check your e-mails and work with us to get you into a course and shooting as soon as possible.
We are a non-profit sporting club who practice the sport of target archery at our range in the foothills of Mt. Keira. We are one of the largest archery clubs in NSW with over 200 members. We practice all forms of the sport – Target, Field, Clout and Indoor and all bow types are in use by our members.
We are affiliated with the Archery Society of NSW and in turn with Archery Australia and World Archery. This allows our members to enjoy the challenge and comraderie of shooting tournaments throughout the country.
Our members range from Australian Representative level to the social weekend archer, families and individuals – archery is a sport for all!
Our club has some of the best facilities available to archers in Australia with the club facilities being available to members 7 days a week, and the depth of experience within the club is of great benefit to newer archers and those wishing to advance their skills.
We hold club shoots every Saturday and also host several tournaments throughout the year. Interested in archery?? Try one of our Beginner Classes and get involved.
