The complex is located in Pitner Road Park located at 2302 Pitner Road in Acworth. There is a NFAA field range, a broadhead practice area for hunters and an Olympic target practice area that is laid out in measured meters from 10 meters to 90 meters.
For safety reasons, all usage of this facility must be with the oversight of the Kennesaw Archery Club. The club has been in existence since 1988. They are affiliated with the National Archery Association (NAA) and the National Field Archery Association (NFAA). The NAA is affiliated with the Federation of International Target Archery (FITA) which is the international governing body for Olympic style archery competitions. The NAA promotes Olympic style archery. The NFAA is primarily a bow hunter style organization. Their format focuses on target competition that simulates hunting conditions, like field, hunter and animal rounds as well as 3-D targets.
Beginners have the opportunity to enter the program at a nominal cost. See their web site for additional info.
