TAC TXARC logo 250Welcome to Texans Archery Club!

You should receive your membership identification, and are required to wear it and sign in, before accessing any range. After watching the Safety Video, please review the website for RANGES you are interested in. Depending on your level of membership, and expertise, you may have limited access to some ranges. Safety is our main concern. Read the range rules (also posted at each facility), hours of operation and layout. Every member is invited to attend our Intro to Archery class for FREE within their first month of membership (range certification is the goal). Loaner equipment is mainly available at the Academy.

Club History starts in the 1960’s as an employee club at Texas Instruments. Texins Archery Club used TI provided land for a range off Restland near the main campus for many years. TI resolved to shed the employee clubs in the 1990’s which eventually meant losing the range land and creating a new entity, Texans Archery Club (TAC). In 2011, the club realized the need for a consistent teaching environment and more convenient public access to archery. An indoor range and non-profit school, Texas Archery Academy (TXAA) was created. TAC was merged into the new 501(c)3.

This community outreach has caused the club growth and influence, resulting in the creation of additional ranges and affiliations throughout the state. To simplify the confusion of the different names and multiple websites, we have adopted TexasArchery.info as a state wide marketing campaign to promote Archery. Additionally, we developed a free App as a public guide on archery resources in Texas (download).

TAI

Membership now enjoys a network of ranges around the state, and discount for public access to other affiliated clubs, municipal ranges, and pro shops… sponsored by TexasArchery.info. Our goal is to help support the development of archery infrastructure throughout the state.


You have joined the largest archery club in Texas. We are a non profit CLUB. As a member, you are expected to pitch in (this is not a retail business, like buying a ticket to a movie). Every member must watch out for safety, develop fundamental archery knowledge, help others obey range rules, and contribute an hour of community service. We do allow the public limited access to some of our ranges – if YOU see something wrong, find the Range Officer on duty or act! Good ideas are always invited. If you see a problem, offer a solution.

We ask you to SHARE your passion for archery. Invite a guest to shoot. Become an instructor. Volunteer for events. Participate in club competitions. Donate to our On Target Fund. What can you do to help grow archery in Texas?

Please make sure you are getting club communications to be in the know about operating hours or lock code changes, league and tournaments, club hunts, etc. For current happenings, we also have two Facebook pages displayed on the Home page of our website.
