Participants are required to social distance while attending class. Designated shooting spots are marked on the range. Each participant is permitted to have one (1) spectator. Masks are required unless medical reason exists. Spectators are also expected to social distance. All equipment used that belongs to RPA will be left out so that it can be cleaned and sanitized after use. Maximum class sizes have been reduced to meet social distancing. Changes to CDC & MDHHS policy regarding vacination has no impact on our policy. Masks are required of all persons in our facility.

*These times are subject to change as we may add additional sessions in the busy winter season. During non peak periods, sessions may include both beginners and intermediate level students.


Our range requires that all participants wear a closed toe shoe. Sandals and Flip flops which do not enclose the toe are not permitted for participants. Spectators are welcome to wear these types of shoes.


Interesting Fact: Athletes may not shoot the same as their dominate hand. It’s really important in archery to shoot based on how you SEE the target. This is referred to eye dominance. Here is an article to find out more about how this works.
