Welcome to Shirewood Forest Archers
26 March 2020 - club update - as of now, our field and clubhouse are closed for all club activities - no events, no practice, no working bees, etc - club targets and other equipment are not to be used.
This decision is based on the directions from Archery Australia, Federal Goverment and local council.
Archers shooting at the field at this time will not be covered by Archery Australia insurance...
Please do not breach the directions as there can be severe consequences, personally and for the club.
21 March 2020 - club update - at this stage we are postponing all Come-N-Try and Beginner courses until further notice.
Club shoots, as of now, will not incur league points, so that club members that wish to avoid public groups will not be disadvantaged by their decision.
Sorry for the inconvinence, please take care and keep safe.
Shirewood Forest Archers (SWFA) started operating from July 2013 with 6 founding members. Since then, it has been very busy running Beginners courses and Come N Try sessions on Sunday afternoons. The morning is reserved for club and/or practice shoots for members.
SWFA prides itself as the first and only archery club in the Shire. SWFA is located at the Ridge Sports Complex in Barden Ridge, set in a bushland surrounding, it is arguably one of the best sports complexes in the country, complete with a new 18-hole golf course and driving range.
With permission granted by the Council, Illawong Athletics were kind enough to share with us their lower Athletics Field used for long jump and shot put. It is fully fenced, facing south for shooting direction, 50M x 100M, bounded on 3 sides by bushland, and on the left side by a lawned slope which will ideally serve as a spectators stand. Facilities include an operations room/clubhouse, toilets, showers, shelter and plenty of parking.
Club events are held on Sundays. The shooting range is usually available during the week for practice when not being used by Athletics.
The range can take a maximum of 12 targets at 3 metre lanes. Maximum shooting distance is 90 metres.
