Welcome to Sylvan Archers


Community Archery Program (CAP)

Sylvan Archers has a CAP at its outdoors range classes during late spring summer and early fall. See more information below.

The Community Archery Program is open to the public. We teach archery basics and discuss archery styles and equipment to help you choose your archery path and make good equipment purchase decisions. It is our hope you will enjoy archery and become a member of Sylvan Archers Club. Sessions are $5 for nonmembers who use club equipment and free for those who bring their own archery equipment (subject to approval by instructor). Sessions are available throughout the year, generally on Saturdays during daylight hours. Participants are limited to two sessions. Youth (under 18) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
