1.    The Academy Archery Club safety procedures are required because of the potential danger involved with the sport of archery. These procedures are designed to minimize the risk of injury to anyone using the range.
a.    In the absence of any specific rule, common sense must prevail while shooting on the range.
b.    Equipment should be checked for serviceability each time before shooting.
c.     Enter and exit all ranges only at designated points. Do not “back track” on any range. Do not take any short cuts between shooting lanes.
d.    Do not nock an arrow until verifying the area down range is clear and you are standing at the established shooting line. Once an arrow is nocked, the bow will always be pointed down range.
e.    No one will proceed past the shooting line until everyone in the group has finished shooting.
f.      If you must go behind a target to retrieve an arrow, you will place your bow, jacket or any other obvious item in front of the target to obstruct it. This will alert other archers that the target is not clear.
g.    Absolutely no broadheads will be used or carried while on the walking or practice ranges. Broadheads are allowed only on the Broadhead Lane. 
h.    Absolutely no crossbows on any ranges. Colorado law considers crossbows rifles.
i.      No alcoholic beverages (or illegal drugs) are allowed on the range at any time. Anyone using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to shoot.
j.      Smoking of any kind is prohibitive on archery property to include clubhouse, patio, static range, ALL walking ranges, parking lot, etc. No exceptions.
k.     Accidents which result in injury or damage to public/private property, fire, or incidents that generate public attention, will be reported immediately to the proper authorities and to a Range Captain.
l.      No unauthorized guests allowed. All Shooting Guests Must Purchase A Day Pass.
m.   Range Pass must be visible.
n.    No passes shall be shared or transferred.
2.    Pets must be on a leash, in control of owner and must never disturb/distract other shooters. Keep in mind individuals may have life threatening allergies to dogs.
3.    Archers who violate these rules risk having their membership and shooting privileges revoked.
4.    In an effort to provide increased security, a gate leading the to the clubhouse has been installed. This gate will be locked when the clubhouse is not manned. Please do not block this gate when it is closed and locked to allow for service vehicles. We are all guests on the Academy – we must do our part to keep the range clean.
