2021 Shoot Schedule

North Florida Archers
is an annual membership
club. Single/daily passes
are not available.
See our "Membership"
page for full info...

In order to preserve the
life of our targets on the
walk around ranges, no
person will shoot more
than 2 arrows per target.
 Target repair/replacement
is very time consuming
and costly.
This policy will extend the
life of our 3D targets so we
can continue to provide a
great shooting experience
for all our members.

Club membership cards to
be displayed/worn while
you are at the club. 
Your membership card
identifies you as a current
and valid club member.




February 2021 Election of Officers

Yearly elections will be held at the February 2021 general meeting for all officers and board members as per club by-laws. However, the procedure for elections will be conducted in a new manner. If you are interested in running for a position of a club officer or board member, please submit your name to the NFA administration, between December 1, 2020 and January 15, 2021 stating the position you would like to hold. Your name and requested position will be added to the ballot for the February 2021 meeting. There will be an opportunity to be placed on the ballot as a write-in at the February meeting should you decide at the last minute you want to run.

Ballots will be distributed at the February meeting where you will then make your selections. The ballots will be tallied at the meeting and results will be announced before the end of the meeting. Please note; there has been a change which was voted and passed by the membership that there be a maximum of 10 board members, not including the Chairman of the board.

Members who currently hold a position of officer or board member need to contact NFA Administration if you plan to seek re-election for the same or different position.

About North Florida Archers

North Florida Archers (NFA) is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide an opportunity for the citizens of North Florida to participate in the sport of archery.  Directed by members in good standing, the club provides facilities for both traditional and compound archers.  Sorry no crossbows allowed!

The facility is located on approximately 45 beautifully wooded acres within the Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park.  The facility features a covered target range with targets at varying distances up to 70 yards with room for targets to 100 yards.  It also has wooded shooting trails throughout the property, which feature multiple 3D targets.

NFA facilities are open from 7:00 a.m. until dark seven days a week.  Access to the facility is controlled so that members can come and go at their leisure. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other youth groups are welcome to visit and try their hand at the sport.  Coaching is offered in the finer points of archery while emphasizing the aspects of safety.

NFA has a very low membership fee for individuals and families.  Membership dues are used for facility maintenance.

Club meetings are held at 6 p.m., the first Wednesday of the month (unless holidays or special events conflict), to discuss club issues and to welcome new members. All meetings are held at the club pavilion.

The club is entirely managed by its members.  Members are encouraged to volunteer for special workdays and to help with the preparations for the monthly shoots.

For further information please browse this website, stop by the club's facilities or
call the club phone at 904-460-8512


The US Navy, in support of the Morale Welfare and Recreation for government personnel, established North Florida Archers in 1988.  In 1990 the facility was turned over to civilians for management and control.  Approximately 2001 the facility became part of the city of Jacksonville park system.

The property includes historical elements, including a section of the “Old Brick Road” which is a part of the history of the Jacksonville area.


North Florida Archers (NFA) is located within the Tillie K. Fowler Park, 7000 Roosevelt Ave, Jacksonville, Florida.  Access to the club is across the road from the Yorktown Ave. gate of the Naval Air Station-Jacksonville (NAS-JAX).
