Lake Joondalup Archery Club

The vision and direction of Lake Joondalup Archery Club is driven by our members. At present, members are keen to compete, improve their skills and shoot for high scores. All of us are seeking to educate ourselves further in terms of our technique, regardless of our level of expertise. Our members regularly compete at both State and National levels. We also provide a friendly and social atmosphere for those that simply enjoy the sport of archery. We offer a variety of courses catering to all skill levels.

Lake Joondalup Archery Club participates in four archery disciplines with an emphasis on Outdoor Target archery. This means shooting outdoors over distances ranging from 10 to 90m. We also compete at Field Archery events. Field archery is shot outdoors over distances ranging up to 60m over uneven ground. Annually, we compete at the State and National Indoor events. Indoor is shot at a fixed distance of 18m. Our more experienced archers also compete in Clout tournaments.

We shoot at St Stephens Carramar Campus, at 50 St Stephens Crescent, Tapping, Western Australia every sunday. Setup commences at 1.30pm and shooting from 2.00pm, archery generally finishes at 5pm. Parking is located from the Clarkson Ave entrance to the school. Unfortunately we don’t have facilities to cater for crossbows.

Facilities

 

We are very grateful to St Stephens for permitting the use of their Carramar campus. We have ample space for multiple targets ranged over various distances. Where required, we can cater to FITA shoots that need to be shot in the North/South direction. We have covered areas that permit our members to shoot under shade and provide protection from rain. Toilets and water fountains are also located in the undercover area. We also have an equipment shed adjacent to the fields for storage of our target butts and stands. Carparking is available at the grounds.

For introduction to archery, the club has recurve bows, quivers, carbon and aluminium arrows, bow stands and arm guards. All club equipment is of good quality and maintained to a high standard. Some of our recurve bows range in poundage from 16lbs to 30lbs and are suitable for age ranges 8 to adult. We also have small left/right recurve bows suitable for ages 8 and under. These are very light poundage bows (5lbs – 10lbs).

History

 

Archery has been practiced in the Joondalup area for over 50 years. Our original archery grounds were at Rotary Park, Wanneroo alongside Lake Joondalup, hence the name of our sports club. In 2006 the archery club had to relocate to Rotary Park due to redevelopment of the park. With the assistance of the City of Joondalup, it moved temporarily to a public park until suitable grounds could be found. The club was founded in 1999, with Mr Dennis Holmes as President. He is a life member and is recognized as the founding father of Lake Joondalup Archery Club. As a sports club, we represent the City of Joondalup with pride and distinction. We are affiliated with FITA, Archery Australia (AA) and Archery Western Australia (AWA).
