What is the Fort Collins Archery Association?
The Fort Collins Archery Association is a group of people united in interest in archery. Our membership includes both active Bow-hunters and target archers who have never hunted. We maintain the Fort Collins outdoor archery range and work with local organizations and businesses to provide support for youth archery programs, and host competitions. The Association has many family-oriented activities during the year.

Why should I join?
Joining FCAA is the best way to support archery and the public archery range in Fort Collins. Your membership will afford your family many opportunities for field practice and organized 3D shooting in the 16 week league (May-Aug.), and other exclusive membership events. Members get information about the operational needs of the club for maintaining the public range, in addition to all local events and area shooting opportunities.
There are many opportunities in the club to get involved and support archery locally. The membership shares our sport through the annual Archery Day when the public is invited for a full day of free archery instruction with our equipment. We also conduct a free, members-only family camping trip every Father’s Day weekend, called the 3-D Jamboree. Your family membership fee and your volunteer effort will contribute to keeping the range operating and promote the growth of our sport in Northern Colorado.
FCAA members have maintained the public archery range in cooperation with the city for more than 25 years. Effective 3/1/2010, the city has made the range a pay-for-use park. Your family membership includes a yearly range pass for your vehicle ($30 value). Your membership is critical to the continued operation of the archery range.
FCAA Board meetings (always open to all members) are held monthly during the year at the clubhouse located on the hill just above the range. At least one general membership meeting is held during the year. Event dates and times are announced in the newsletter and on the FCAA web site. The FCAA also supports archery instruction for youth groups by providing volunteers and equipment. Why not fill out a membership application and join the FCAA today? You will get a chance to meet other people with the same interests. Who knows? Maybe you will find a new hunting partner.
