Our archers

Warm summer day with an assortment of archers shooting on the line. They are shooting both barebow and olympic recurve.

Our archers range in years and experience, from the young to the young at heart. Styles range from traditional (long bow and barebow) to Olympic recurve and compound. Some of our archers just shoot for recreation. It’s an opportunity to get outdoors and get some exercise. Pulling a bow strengthens the upper body and walking the range gets you moving. Plus, you can chat with other archers in a relaxed atmosphere.

We also have archers who compete in local and national events. Both coaches and members have done well in the NC Senior Games, USA Archery, National Field Archery, World Field Archery and other events. Our archers include USAA JOAD National champions in Barebow and a USAA National Indoor champion in longbow. Allison Eaton, our head coach, has been on the USA World Field Archery Team and the USA Olympic Shadow team for Olympic Recurve. Whether an archer is just shooting for fun, for the discipline or for state and national competitions, you can find a place in our line.
