We offer several leagues throughout the year. You do not need to be a Detroit Archer’s member to shoot any of our leagues or events. If you can't commit to the league and just want to shoot it now and again, you are always welcome to any of our leagues and just pay the per-night fee. The pricing of a league (with exception to the Monday Bush League) is $10 for members and $15 for non-members per night. Unlike most other club's leagues, ours generally have a small payout at the end!

Want a jump on the upcoming indoor tournament season? Maybe you aren’t a hunter or just want to shoot indoors? Then come shoot FITA on Friday nights! This league will be shooting FITA targets (single or multi-spot, archer’s choice) at 18m, 3 arrow ends for 20 ends for a total of 60 arrows and using FITA scoring (10, 9, 8, 7…). Please arrive 15 minutes early if possible so that the first arrow will go off at 730pm. Scoring is handicapped and due to the overwhelming popularity of the league, we group by style with recurve scoring against recurve and compound against compound. We look forward to shooting with you!

The Bush Barebow League is one of the oldest continuous archery leagues in the nation and at one time even shot in the Bear Archery shop when it was still located in Detroit in the ‘40s. The league is an indoor target league for barebow archers, both compounds and stickbows. The rules of the league require no sights, no releases, and stabilizers limited to 12 inches or less. Any type of arrows may be used. Currently there are longbows, recurves and compounds represented in the league. The league shoots the NFAA 40cm blue target face. Each year the league votes on the distances to be shot. Currently the league is shooting 20 arrows at 20 yards, 20 arrows at 15 yards, 20 arrows at 25 yards, and 20 arrows again at 20 yards, for a total of 80 arrows. League members are assigned to teams and handicaps are established based on 90% of scores. Please note that this league does not count towards the Detroit Archers Membership League requirement.
