Frequently Asked Questions
Crossbows are not permitted to be used at our club.
I've never shot a bow before (Try-it nights)
That's okay, we've got you covered! We offer try-it nights several times a year, both indoor and outdoor. Use the "Contact Us" button below (bottom right-hand corner) to find out when our next try-it will be held, and to get your name on the list.
Try-it events are $20 per person, payable in advance (we'll send you a PayPal invoice which can be paid with either a PayPal account or a credit card)
My child / teen would like to learn to shoot
We have coached juniors programs on Thursday nights both indoors through the fall/winter and outdoors in the spring. Use the "Contact Us" button below (bottom right-hand corner) to find out when the next intake is.
Minimum age to start shooting with us is 8-years-old.
I'm not a Maple Ridge Archery Club member. Can I still shoot?
We allow any BC Archery member to shoot at our club upon payment of a $10 drop-in fee, Thursdays and Sundays during the Indoor season, and on Thursdays only on JOP nights during outdoor season (May & June).
We allow non-members to participate (for a fee) up to 3 times before requiring the purchase of at least a BC Archery membership.
Non-members with their own equipment can pay a $12 drop-in fee (each visit, to a maximum of 3 visits).
Non-members that do not have equipment can pay a $20 try-it fee, on Thursdays only during our Indoor season, and during a scheduled Try-it event during our outdoor season. (each visit, to a maximum of 3 visits) Please "contact us" to sign up for a Try-it.
How long does my membership last?
The membership year coincides with the calendar year, however, new members joining in October to December will have their membership extended to December of the following year.
Summer memberships are valid for the Outdoor season only: May through September

Visit the membership page for more information.
How can I help? (seeking volunteers)
Volunteers are always needed! Big and small jobs are readily available, from arriving early to help set up the target butts, to showing up at a tournament to help set-up/take-down, helping kids score during an event, running a concession during a large event or at hot-dog nights, the list is endless. As little as a few minutes of your time is greatly appreciated and always welcomed.
What better way to learn about archery than to help out a few times and watch how much fun everyone is having--you're bound to pick up a bow and join in!
