Outdoor Range

The facility hosts 3 outdoor archery ranges. Nearest is the practice field with a 160 foot covered shooting line. The practice field is used for daily lessons and tournament warm-up, and has shooting distances out to 90 meters. It is connected to the facility by a large paved patio and sidewalks. There are three additional sidewalks within the practice field for wheelchair access to various target distances.

For large outdoor target events, a FITA field has been developed capable of holding 64 54″ target mats in a single line. To support the field, a shade pavilion and a concession stand with rest rooms are positioned nearby. There is ample parking. Northern Florida has a mild winter climate that permits outdoor shooting year round.
Field and 3-D archers enjoy scenic walks in the woods in our 60 acres wooded archery course. There are a number of broad pedestrian lanes and walk-back target stations for even the largest of 3D events. In February 2010, Newberry hosted its first ASA Pro-Am with over 1,400 archers.

The wooded course is close to parking, and the soil is light and airy. The trails are maintained by the Newberry Recreation Department. Overnight motor home camping is available nearby.

The practice range, the FITA range, and the wooded 3D/field range make the Newberry facility capable of hosting virtually any type of archery event.

Coach training’s, classes, seminars, and more are held in our classroom.
