Experience ARCHERY at the RA!

Archery is one of the oldest forms of target shooting and an original Olympic Sport. Whether you are new to the sport, advanced, looking to join a club or drop in for a session; the RA has something for everyone.

TEMPORARY CLOSURE - All RA in-person programs, activities and services are temporarily suspended. 

The Province of Ontario has mandated that all indoor recreational and sports facilities (including the RA Centre) are to close until January 27 (at the earliest). Read more... 

During this closure, we will be operating with minimal staff on a reduced schedule and will do our best to respond to members as quickly as possible. Although there is no access to the building, Member Services will be available, Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm by phone at 613-733-5100 and e-mail at info@racentre.com. We apologize in advance for any delay or inconvenience. 


Come experience the RA Archery range! Our range has 6 shooting lanes and is currently Ottawa's longest indoor range with a maximum shooting distance of 32 meters (35 yards). Our onsite professional is available to help with answering questions, booking lessons or general guidance. We look forward to welcoming you for a visit soon. 

Our range welcomes all Compound, Longbow and Recurve bows to a maximum draw weight of 60 pounds. Arrows with rounded target points are required, please no broad head or push points (unless pinned). The range is not set up to support Crossbows.


Our range is open to everyone! Individuals wishing to participate in Archery may do so by:

  • Joining the RA Archery Club and gaining access to a number of leagues, events and open range times
  • Taking advantage of Non-Member drop in hours, supervised by our full-time Archery Professional
  • Registering for a league, seminar or workshop as either a Member of the Club or Non-member

In the long run, you only hit at which you aim!
