The Range

Our range is located in the public archery range at Cedar Creek Park. We consider this facility to be the jewel of the local archery community in the Greater Long Island, NYC metro area. The club maintains the field to World Archery Standards during practice sessions and tournaments. We offer a variety of distances from 10 meters to 70 meters to cover all skill levels.
