AIS Archery is a high performance program based in Canberra, catering for archers all over the country. The program was launched in 1997 to prepare Australian archers for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. It began with five female archers, and expanded to offer male archers places in late 1997.
The AIS Archery Centre was opened in 2003. It is a training centre which caters for both indoor and outdoor shooting and performance analysis, and includes meeting facilities, offices, a workshop and storage areas.
The centre’s outdoor range can accommodate up to 30 archers at distances of up to 90 metres, while the indoor range allows 15 archers to train up to 30 metres. In the cold winter months, the facility also allows archers to shoot on the outdoor range from an indoor area.
