About Archery @ BISC


Our new Archery facility features a sheltered shooting line with open air targets ranging from 10 to 40 yards. The entire range is fully lighted for night time shooting. We also provide low cost rental of bows and arrows, including arm-guards and shooting gloves.

When open our range is staffed with Range Safety Officers 300-bow-and-girl(RSO’s) for a safe and friendly shooting environment for the entire family. All of the RSO’s are experienced archers who are happy to share their knowledge to get you started in this exciting sport. We also offer group Archery lessons for youths and adults. You are welcome to bring your own archery equipment to shoot as long as it meets the requirements set by the Club and passes inspection of the RSO on duty.

Check out our archery photo gallery. It displays the range, our grand opening, people using our facility, young folks having fun, and our rental equipment. It is all about having a good time and learning motor skills.

Bainbridge Island Sportsmen’s Club offers many opportunities for archers of all ages and skill levels to explore the sport.  We offer archery classes through our JOAD club, Island Archers.  More info can be found at www.IslandArchers.com

The Explore Archery Courses focus on the fundamentals of archery. These classes are for both youth and adults.  In fact this is a great class for families to take together!  This is a basic skills course that is suitable for beginning and novice archers as well as more advanced archers who want to work on shooting fundamentals.

We teach the National Training System (NTS) of archery developed by KiSik Lee, the head coach for USA Olympic Archery.  Safety and archery range rules will be the most important thing that we cover but most of our time will be spent learning about archery equipment and proper shooting form development.

The course is taught by one of our USA Archery certified archery instructors and the material that we cover will serve as the foundation for a lifetime of archery.
