About Us

The Club

NORVA is a members-only archery club whose ranges are located beside Fountainhead Regional Park in Fairfax Station, Virginia, with approximately 71 acres of prime Virginia parkland. We are dedicated to the sport of archery and all of its disciplines, and cater to both compound and traditional archers of all skill levels! We are affiliated with the Virginia Field Archery Association and the National Field Archery Association.

Our Ranges

is designed for the expert archer, but also can cater to the novice. The range is marked from 15 to 60 yards with markers every five yards in between.

is designed for our dedicated bowhunters and is the only range at NORVA that allows archers to use broadhead arrowheads.

is dedicated to our novice archers that are new to the sport. This range has four fixed distance targets with a fabric mesh screen draped behind them to catch any stray arrows. It is intended to be used solely for orientation and class environments, so we ask our general members to refrain from using it and leave it for the inexperienced archers.

is an NFAA certified, fixed-distance field archery course. This is our most relaxing course, offering benches for regular breaks and taking archers down paths along streams and through grassy clearings on an easy 2-mile hike in the Virginia woodlands. The course is split into two separate ranges: 1-14 on one half and 15-28 on the other half. Signs are posted at regular intervals to keep our archers on the right trail. This range is host to many archery tournaments during the competition season and is used for both target shooting and paper animal targets.

is set up along the back half of the field archery range (targets 15 – 28). The 3-D targets are strictly for kids, aged 12 and under, shooting from the silver stake since the field course was not designed to meet the required safety clearance zone for 3-D targets at all marked distances.

is our pride and joy, and one of the largest of its kind in Northern Virginia. The course is stretched out on a 1.5-mile trail loop and has 25 individual lanes with 30 targets that are unmarked distances and dotted along a terrain walking trail. Each lane is designed for a wide variety of skills to make it one of the most versatile archery ranges in the state of Virginia. Archers can shoot from one of the six following IBO categories:

Blue (max 50 yards)
Green (max 45 yards)
Red (max 40 yards)
Yellow (max 35 yards)
Orange (max 30 yards)
White (max 25 yards)

Pink “Ironman” (max 60 yards)
Not an official class but a challenging shot often around or between obstacles.
