As a member of SOSA you can use the outdoor archery range at the bowl every day except when it is closed for a special event which is not very often. 


These target butts are for use by normal target equipment there is to be no broad heads used on them. At this time, no crossbows are allowed to be shot at these butts as they require a special butt designed to stop the bolts and allow for retrieval without destroying the butt. If you are a club member and have a cross bow contact me and we will see what can be done. Ron Ostermeier 250-498-3205

If you need to rent archery equipment during the summer months you will have to give us a call before you come to archery as we don’t always bring the rental equipment with us.   Bow Rental available    : $5.00

Our coaches are certified with the Coaching Association of Canada.

Our Junior Program is run through the BC Archery Association and the awards for achievements are supplied by them. Qualified coaches run this program and the youth develop at their own pace. To participate in this program you are required to be a member of the BC Archery Association. The program is called JOP and is for youth between the ages of 6 to 21. Through this program we run a Mail Match with all the clubs in the province, a Regional tournament shot at the club and Provincial Indoor and Outdoor Championships in 3 or 4 locations in province.
