We are a Port Stephens based archery club. Affiliated with the 3D Archery Association of Australia (3DAAA).
We know trying a new sport or joining a new club can be a bit daunting. But our club is a friendly, family focused club. We want everyone to have the opportunity to see why we love archery so much!
We know a lot of people may have tried archery before. Usually at school. The big round target, shooting from the same place.
Kinda got boring fast didn't it?
We thought so too!
Our outdoor competition is as far removed from that as possible!
Skippy was born into archery and has been shooting since he could walk. Skip has won state and national championships as well as shot national records. He's also our compound expert. If you are interested in high tech archery talk to Skip.
Richo first started archery at 13 years old. While his passion is Traditional archery he loves shooting all types of bows. Richo has a real passion for getting Veterans into archery as well as shooting with his greatest fans, his daughters.
Tracey started shooting at the ripe old age of 39 (18 Years ago) shooting barebow recurve & has shot everything from back tension release to bare fingers, which is her real love. She's won numerous state & national titles, Shooter of the Year & records. Her crowning achievement was winning the Marg Cowin award. Tracey has been on several club committees, helped a lot of clubs with their sanctioned shoot admin & served 8 years on the 3DAAA committee as newsletter editor, score recorder & treasurer plus Nationals organiser & workhorse! Tracey is especially passionate about getting girls into the sport & love seeing the kids have fun. For Tracey it’s about the fun, the people & giving back to a community that’s given so much to her over the years.
Karen started shooting a bow with the birth or Port Stephens Archers. After years of watching Richo shoot and have fun she finally decided that it was time for her to join in. Karen shoots Trad class recurve and is pretty handy throwing a tomahawk as well. Karen's favourite thing about archery is being outdoors in the bush and having fun with her family.
