Archery Ranges around the Twin Cities

Several area parks have archery ranges. Some offer programs that provide everything you need to try out the sport. The DNR even offers free archery programs in some State Parks.

If you are interested in learning archery as a family, you may want to start with the Minnesota State Archery Association’s article on Starting Kids in Archery. It has tips for getting the right equipment and finding mentors.

Note that Minneapolis Parks that offer archery provide the space and the hay bales, the rest is the responsibility of the guest. However, they do offer Archery in the Parks program at neighborhood parks throughout the City. Information on this can be found on the Minneapolis Park’s website by searching keyword “archery”)

Where to Start With Archery?

Many of the park archery ranges, including Minneapolis, require you to bring your own equipment. A search for a “beginner set” on Amazon left me a bit overwhelmed. Do I buy the rubber-tipped beginner sets? Will they work with a standard archery range? The sets without rubber tips tend to be for shooters taller than me and definitely taller than my kids. The example above is one I found with really good reviews. (Note that if you shop through this link, FFTC receives a small commission on sales). I am leaning toward starting with a Family Archery program through Three Rivers Park District. At $10 per person, the price of this class for a family adds up quickly, but it may beat purchasing a starter kit and getting it wrong.
