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

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 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.
