Overview

Established in 2014. As the largest range in NYC, Gotham Archery was founded to provide an environment friendly to both experienced archers as well as those who have never held a bow before. For those new to archery, Gotham Archery offers an Introductory Class package complete with bow rental and instruction. Our Range Safety Officers will walk you through every step of the way, so you enjoy every minute of your new hobby. PROS For experienced archers who want to practice in a quieter setting, we offer a 20 yards or 18 meter range with 10 lanes separate from the main facility. Video analysis will also be available shortly after launch. J.O.A.D. Junior Olympic Archery Development is a USA Archery program tailored to introducing, developing, and advancing young archers in the sport. Whether a casual hobbyist or Olympic hopeful, participants benefit from increased confidence and discipline while having fun. Gotham Archery runs two concurrent JOAD programs, one for ages 10-15 and another 16-20. Starting dates will be posted on both the website and at the facility
