The Conejo Valley Archers provides a Open Public Archery Session every Saturday, rain or shine, at the club's Public Session Range facility. Come out and join us!


We welcome individuals and families interested in the sport of archery to train with us, starting with the basics and giving you the opportunity to move up through longer distances and into competitions.


We also offer the opportunity to join our Junior Olympic Achievement Development Program (JOAD) for archers up to age 20 and the Adult Achievement Pin Program for anyone over 18 years.


All equipment is provided and training as outlined below. 

When: Every Saturday Morning from 9:00am to 1:00pm rain or shine. Check our website and Facebook page for possible closures. You can arrive and leave at anytime between 9am and 1pm, or stay and shoot for the entire four hours.

Where: At the Conejo Valley Archers Public Session Range facility located at 4651 Tapo Canyon Road, Simi Valley, CA 93063. You can get directions to our facility using the Directions link below.

Who:  Children must be at least 8 years old to participate in our program in the interest of safety.

Cost: The cost to shoot at our Saturday Session is a $5 range fee donation per person.  This includes all equipment, range use and instruction by our staff of USA Archery certified instructors and coaches. Archers with their own equipment who are not CVA Members are also requested to pay the range fee donation to cover use of the facilities, targets etc.


All participants are required to have a completed waiver to shoot. Waivers are also available at the range. All archers under the age of 18 must have their  waiver cosigned by a parent or legal guardian, and must be accompanied by an adult at all times while on the range. Adults who bring children other than their own should have a completed waiver and medial release signed by the parent with them. Medical release forms are also available at the range.


Parking is allowed in our gated facility for free or you may pay the $4.00 fee at the park entry gate and park anywhere in the Tapo Canyon Park picnic area. Cars parked in the county park  that have not paid at the gate could be ticketed up to $70 by a Park Ranger. For those frequent attendees an Annual Park Pass is avaiable from the County of Ventura.

The Conejo Valley Archers are proud of our certified coaches and instructors. CVA Coaches are USA Archery certified, which includes background checks and Safe Sport certifications. This means they have had extensive training in archery as well as in-depth training in safety and management of large groups.

Please take a few minutes to learn about some of our coaches and their backgrounds.....

CVA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and it takes some creative thinking to build, raise funds, run and maintain such a facility. Hosting private parties, groups and special events helps us accomplish this goal. It also provides an alternative activity to folks who would like to do something out of the ordinary.

Private groups have included everyone from Scouts to church groups, professional team building events, social gatherings and of course birthday parties! (See a short list of some of our groups below)

We are capable of handling groups up to 100 but most groups range from 15-40 people. Depending on the size of the group we like to have one instructor for every 6 people. (This depends on the ages of the attendees)

There are plenty of picnic tables available for food and beverages. Most people bring whatever snack, lunches or birthday cakes with them when they come. It is a carry-in; carry-out facility and we have on site recycling areas for plastic, cans and glass. Some restrictions apply.

Groups that regularly attend our Private Group Events include:


Boy Scouts
Girl Scouts
American Heritage Girls
National Charity League
Athletic Teams
Boys and Girls Club
Seniors Social
Birthday Parties for all ages



NOTE: Groups cannot be accommodated during our Saturday Public Open Sessions. 

Minimum age of participants is 8 years.

Basic info if interested in planning a group attending the range:

There is a minimum charge of $120.00. This charge is for up to 12 shooters for a 2 hour party. Each additional shooter is $10.
