All Ages. All Abilities. All Ladies.

Lady Archers is a club for women and girls who seek a sense of independence with their archery practice, or simply want to learn basic traditional archery in a number of settings and styles. Club members get access to an archery coach and five trained mentors who already live and shoot recurve and longbows here on Cape Breton Island. Guidance, encouragement, education: we all need it, no matter how old we are.

We don't just shoot arrows at Lady Archers, either! We build fires, shelters, learn about safety, cook snacks, do yoga (did you know there are archers poses?), and we learn how to fletch our own arrows, fix our own bows and do just about everything needed to be an independent Lady Archer. 

Each event is hosted by the Coach (Jay) with the help of a mentor whose unique skills and education will help shape the event. Events are 2.5-3 hours long and a schedule will be posted in June along with registration.

Archery & Wilderness Events

These are just a few of the skills and activities that the Lady Archer events will be expanding on. What is important about this setup is that there are no commitments! The events take place mostly in the late summer and fall giving you lots of time to plan for making them regularly. As a member, you get a discount off of the admission of each Lady Archer event.
