About Sherwood Park Archery Club and ACE, The Archery Centre of Excellence
The Sherwood Park Archery Club is a registered not-for-profit organization located in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Its mission is to foster and expand the practice of archery and the spirit of good fellowship among archers. The ACE will be an accessible and affordable centre of excellence for target, field, FITA, traditional, and 3D archery. The vision of ACE is to enable recreational and competitive archers, coaches and judges of all ages and abilities, including archers with limb differences, vision impairments, and mobility issues, to enjoy the sport and develop their skills at a single, year-round indoor/outdoor facility. The facility will host indoor and outdoor national and international level tournaments on a year-round basis (both target and 3D tournaments) and will support thousands of archers, judges, coaches and event officials. ACE will help build this Olympic sport in Canada to a degree that has not previously been possible.
This project will cost between $1.4 and $1.6M and we are raising funds now that will be matched dollar-for-dollar through a provincial grant program.
