Club Activities & Shoot Calendar

Cub at Archery Practice

Here at Dead Cen­tre Bowhunters, we either shoot or prac­tice every Sun­day between Feb­ru­ary and Decem­ber. Our DCBH Shoot Cal­en­dar details all activ­i­ties through­out the year. 

Prac­tice & Coaching

Starts usu­al­ly at 10am with a short safe­ty and the­o­ret­i­cal brief of how to hold and shoot a bow cor­rect­ly with­out caus­ing you or oth­ers any harm or injury. Book­ing essential!

Organ­ised shoot on one of our many ranges

Alter­nate to either a prac­tice or prac­tice & coach­ing Sun­day, we set up an organ­ised shoot for all archers on one of our ranges depen­dent on weath­er and shoot dis­ci­pline. For details about what is on when, check our shoot cal­en­dar. Start­ing time in sum­mer is usu­al­ly at 8am and in win­ter 9am. Our Range Mas­ter Stephen sends out week­ly reminder emails to all club mem­bers with start­ing time. So please ensure that you are on the mail­ing list.

Our organ­ised shoots vary from fun club shoots up to for­mal ABA Grad­ing Shoots fol­low­ing the ABA Inc. shoot rules. Grad­ing shoots occur approx­i­mate­ly once a month and in line with our sis­ter club in Dar­win, Freds Pass Field Archers, and all shoot results are sub­mit­ted to ABA Nation­al for offi­cial nation­al grad­ing by the Branch A Score Recorder.

On days with an organ­ised club or grad­ing shoot the Prac­tice Range is closed as per Nation­al ABA reg­u­la­tions and no coach­ing will be avail­able. This allows all club mem­bers to participate.

Peo­ple are invit­ed to par­tic­i­pate in any club and grad­ing shoots but need to ful­fil the fol­low­ing requirements:

  • Be reg­is­tered with ABA Inc. as a mem­ber (pre­sen­ta­tion of a valid ABA mem­ber­ship card upon request)
  • Club equip­ment can be used with per­mis­sion of club coach (fees apply – see DCBH Club Rules)
