What does it mean to be a member of GSA?

Membership comes with many benefits.

Unlike some clubs GSA outdoor ranges are available to members at any time. After a short probationary period (3 months) members are entitled to obtain a key which unlocks the gate, the clubhouse, the target shed and the toilets. There is a $20 security deposit on keys which will be refunded on return of the key.  Please ask a committee member.

Target Fees apply but they allow you to use the Club facilities until the next Saturday shoot, excluding indoor meetings which attract a separate fee. If you come at time other than Saturday please ensure that the red flag is flown at the gate.  It is stored in a white plastic tube on the gate post.  Please lock up before you leave.

The Club has a range of recurve and compound bows and accessories which members can hire for the day.  The club also has a range of equipment such as bow weight measures and chronographs for use by members.  Please contact the Facilities Manager.


Club Target Fees are payable in addition to membership fees and may be paid upfront by the purchase of vouchers or each time you shoot.

The most common fees are listed below and are accurate as at November 2018 but are subject to change without notice.  Membership renewal and application for new membership can be made directly to the Club for payments by cash, cheque, money order or direct debit transfer.  Renewals and applications with payment via credit/debit card can also be done online via the blue buttons on the Archery SA website. Note that EFT charges are included in the fees for online membership transactions.

Temporary Membership

Temporary membership is also available for experienced archers (for safety and insurance reasons an assessment by one of our Accredited Coaches must be carried out to determine competency). Temporary membership is only available for 4 shoots at our club, and must be used within a year. For details about temporary membership fees please contact a GSA Committee member.  Please note that Target Fees still apply for each shoot.

Social Members

Social membership is for people who want to visit Great Southern Archers for non-shooting purposes, for example social events or supporting junior family members at working bees and the like.  Social membership does not grant general shooting privileges however, subject to safety assessments, social members may shoot in some events such as family fun days.
