Archery Associations

SC Archery Association (SCAA) is a non-profit organization that governs recreational and competitive archery in SC. There is a group or class that will meet all equipment styles, skill level, and age classifications. All archers, from the young archer to the occasional bowhunter to the professional archer, are welcome at all our events. 

USA Archery is the National Governing Body for the Olympic sport of archery, and is the organization recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee for the purpose of selecting and training men’s and women’s teams to represent the U.S. in the Olympic, Paralympic, and Pan American Games. USA Archery also selects teams for World Championships, World Cups and other international competitions annually.


The National Field Archery Association is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the sport of archery, and is the largest field archery organization in the World. Founded in 1939, the NFAA now consists of 49 chartered state associations and nearly 1,000 affiliated clubs. The NFAA is a member of the International Field Archery Association and a national allied organization of USA Archery. In 2014, the NFAA celebrated its 75th Anniversary.

In 1946, Rollin Bohning, a research chemist and avid archer became dissatisfied with the bonding cements for hunting shafts. So, he developed Ferr-L-Tite™ adhesive to solve the problem. With some changes, Ferr-L-Tite™ is still the industry standard today. Collaborating with Doug Easton and Fred Bear, Bohning developed Fletch-Tite® Platinum™ fletching cement, a product so effective that nearly every archer uses it. Today, Bohning offers a wide variety of products to serve the needs of archers worldwide.

Archery Sights

I wanted the best archery sight in the World, so I purchased a Sure-Loc Quest-X over 20 years ago and never looked back. I’ve tried a few other brands, but I keep coming back to my Quest-X. In the end, I figure, why fix something that isn’t broken. There are a few really nice target archery sights out there, but if you haven’t given Sure-Loc a try you're cheating yourself out of what I consider to be the best archery sight in the world.


Do you need archery supplies you can't find at your local dealer? There's only one place to go and that is Lancaster Archery Supply. I use a FITA recurve shooter which is especially hard to find in South Carolina. Good archery equipment is tough to find in local shops or even sporting outlet stores. So where do I shop? Lancaster Archery Supply and nowhere else.


Are you into hunting, 3D or target archery? If you are, you need arrows and if you need arrows, your search is over: Victory Archery is the only arrow store you will ever need. The VAP (Victory Accuracy & Performance) shaft has set a new standard in the target arena with its ultra small diameter and thick walled, 100% high modular core. This is the perfect arrow to shrink your group size and increase your scores, especially at long range or in windy conditions.


Do you want the Best Archery Shooting Equipment in the archery world? Then you need to find a Precession Shooting Equipment (PSE) dealer near you and give them a try. I've shot many different recurves from different makers and I keep coming back to my PSE, which tells me I have the best recurve on the market today. To add to the package, PSE customer service is by far the best of all the bow manufacturers out there. Test it. Call your bow manufacturer and talk to customer service. I'm willing to bet they'll tell you to contact your local dealer. They won't help you. I'm telling you this from experience because I've already been there. It's not fun, but you can always talk to someone at PSE. They'll take the frustration out of your bow problems.

When you subscribe to one of the plans, you get all these tools.

Next Step

When I found myself stuck with a video problem, my new friend Bobby at Next Step Archery was there with the help I needed to get back on track. I gave Bobby a call and he gave me some advice on Dartfish video recording software. With it, we found and fixed some pesky form errors which we couldn't see with our other editing software and were able to get our video shoot all fixed up. Bobby helped me discover areas of improvement within my video editing skillset and I am a better videographer for his assistance. Thanks Booby and Next Step Archery!

We all have bow tuning issues from time to time and the best tuning guide I’ve found so far is the Archer’s Reference Guide.  I highly recommend that you download and print a copy to keep in your bow case for the next time it is needed.  It’s really a great tool. I carry it everywhere.
