If you’re looking for a fun and challenging activity the whole family can enjoy, archery is a great sport to try. Whether you want to shoot in the back yard for fun, or learn to compete on a team, there are several clubs around Atlanta that offer lessons, as well as ranges for practicing. Learn more about the basics of the sport at Archery 360.

Atlanta Archery

This range has impressive credentials, but new archers are welcome as well. Jefflyne Potter, former coach for the Georgia Tech archery team, coaches everyone from competitive archers to those who have never even picked up a bow. They do require that kids be at least ten. An indoor range is open year round in Woodstock at 10 Ring Archery Club. The outdoor range (open in spring, summer and fall) is located at Kennesaw Archery Club.

The people here are the real deal. They even have a youth archery team, the ALC Hornets. But don’t let the fact that they turn out World Champion archers intimidate you. Kids as young as seven can take their beginners class. They can even do it just for fun. Check out their Saturday youth classes; the class fee includes equipment rental. Snellville.

Kennesaw Archery Club

The Kennesaw Archery Club in Acworth has been around since 1988. Even though it is technically a club with members, beginners are welcome to come try out a class. Prospective archers should sign up for one of their orientation lessons and then determine if they want to do more classes. 

Panola Mountain State Park

While some archery clubs hold events at The Panola Mountain Archery Range, it is really more of a place for archers to practice. So if you already have your own bow and arrow and just want to do some shooting, visit the park and check out their twelve targets. When you’re done, you can also hike, bike or fish in the beautiful park. Stockbridge.
