If you ever wanted to try the ancient sport of archery, now’s your time.

The Arrowsmith Archers indoor season is starting now, allowing you to learn and practise in the comfort of their indoor facility while making use of their facilities, equipment and experienced coaching.

Registration for the club will take place next Wednesday, October 14.

Part of the Parksville Qualicum Fish and Game Association, the Arrowsmith Archers support members from youth to seniors, beginner to advanced working at any skill level.

Archers practise and shoot competitively throughout the year on indoor and outdoor target ranges and 3-D shooting events.

Young members are excited that this time of year is the start of a new cycle for the Junior Olympic Program (JOP).

The young archers receive recognition as their skill levels increase and they progress through the developmental program while enjoying one of the oldest sports.

The young archers learn both one on one and in small groups with their experienced coaches.

They have the opportunity to be exposed to different styles of archery, competition and they receive competency awards.

Some of the successes of club members last season include:

• four gold won at the JOP provincial indoor tournament

• gold and silver at the JOP provincial outdoor tournament

• four medals at the Canadian Indoor Championship

• gold at both provincial indoor and outdoor championships

• two gold at the Senior Games
