About Lincoln Park Archery Club




History

Founded in 1925, we are a semi-private archery club using Chicago Park District land set aside specifically for archery. We are a registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit committed to community engagement and the continuation of the sport we love. The more bowshooters out there, the better. Our members include former national champions, professional archers, casual arrow-slingers, and everything in between.




Membership

Membership is open to all Chicagoland residents interested in the sport of archery. Please download, complete, and return the membership application with payment to Warren Levin, Treasurer. Membership is required to use the range without an LPAC member present. See the Membership page for full information.

Newcomers

If you’re new to archery and don’t have your own equipment, you are welcome to attend one of our free clinics or set up a private lesson with one of our instructors. We are more than happy to instruct newcomers in the sport of archery and can also give you advice on purchasing equipment.

If you have your own equipment, please contact a member prior to visiting to ensure the range will be open as the range is open at members’ discretion. LPAC reserves the right to inspect all equipment to ensure it is in proper working order.

If you have any questions about archery or Lincoln Park Archery Club, please email a club member – Contact Us.
