New archer information

Due to Covid restrictions, we’re limited to the number of archers we can support on the field. At this time (8/31/2021), we have paused our wait list. Those already on our wait list will be processed. We will reopen new archer orientations when conditions improve.

Sign up procedure

​During  new orientation archers learn both safety requirements and basic conduct. This orientation is mandatory before archers can participate in regular practices and events.  If you would like to join us:

  1. Archers must be at least 8 years of age. Youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the orientation.
  2. Prior to the orientation, the archer (or their parent/guardian, if a minor) must complete the Wolf Ridge Archery Covid Waiver.  This must be filled out one day prior to your arrival at practice.
  3. Please bring the completed/signed waiver form. Again, for youth under 18 years of age, parents must also sign.  No one will be allowed to shoot until all forms have been completed and signed by the appropriate folks.
  4. Please use our Contact Update form to provide the Emergency contact information for each archer. 

Fees

Club fees

There is a membership fee per semester.  There are three semesters per year—Fall semester, Spring semester, and Summer.  This membership fee covers field and equipment usage by archers and coaching and is used to purchase additional disposable items like targets, arrow parts (vanes, nocks, etc.) and replaces lost or damaged arrows.  Checks should be made payable to Wolf Ridge Archery. The fees can be paid per semester or on  a yearly basis:

  • Per semester payment fees
    • $35  per individual for a semester 
    • $75 per family for a semester (3 or more archers)
  • Yearly payment fees
    • ​ $95 for individuals for the year ($10 discount over the 3 semester payment plan)
    • $200 for a family (3 or more archers) for the year.($25 discount over the 3 semester payment plan)

USA Archery membership fees

USA Archery, who provides the club’s insurance coverage now requires all club members to purchase a USA Archery membership after three visits to club activities. We are sorry to have to ask you to add this expense, as we strive to keep fees as low as possible, but it is required.

There are several options for membership. The lowest is the recreational membership, which is only $15 per year. This provides a number of services, but does not allow the member to receive achievement pins or participate in tournaments. If you are not interested in competing, this is the one for you! The full memberships have several options-family, adult individual, youth individual. All the details of the different memberships can be seen on their benefits comparison chart. When you sign up, please select Wolf Ridge Archery as your club. That automatically associates you with us.

Equipment

Wolf Ridge Archery supplies basic archery equipment and coaching. Due to Covid, we are asking archers to purchase their own finger tab and arm guards as they are less easily sanitized. We will have those available for purchase or archers can purchase them locally or online from Eagle’s Flight Archery, First Flight Archery, Lancaster Archery, Walmart, Mace Sports, etc.

Our coaches support a range of styles: Longbow, Barebow, Olympic Recurve and Compound.    If archers wish to purchase equipment, coaches will be happy to discuss equipment sources and make recommendations based on the archer’s skill level and interest. 

Wolf Ridge Archery Alerts

If you wish to join, we recommend that you sign up to our Wolf Ridge Archery Alerts. We will use this list to notify folks when practices are rescheduled or cancelled due to weather or other events.  

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. We’re happy to answer any of your questions
