The New Jersey School of Archery


The indoor range provides a well-lighted, safe location for year-round shooting. Above, an upper-level archery class is on the shooting line.



Students of all levels may compete in both indoor and outdoor tournaments, locally and nationally. Above, a student prepares to shoot at the Gold Cup, a national ranking tournament held annually in Bloomfield, NJ.



The New Jersey School of Archery offers private and group archery lessons to students of all ages and all levels for both recreational shooters and those wishing to advance to state, regional, national and international competition in target archery. Fall, winter and spring sessions are offered, and new students may enroll at any time.

The school is under the direction of Mike Usherenko, an Olympic-level coach. All instruction is provided by USA Archery-certified coaches. The school is affiliated with the national Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program. Equipment is provided for the beginning archer, and the staff is happy to advise those archers who wish to purchase their own bows.

Lessons are taught at both indoor and outdoor ranges in northern New Jersey, and the New Jersey School of Archery is easily accessible from northern and central New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

The indoor range, located at 177 Columbia Turnpike, Florham Park, NJ, features two shooting bays with eight lanes each. One bay is set up to shoot a regulation 18-meter distance. The second bay allows archers to shoot up to 30 meters.

The outdoor range, maintained by the Parks Department of Essex County, is located in the northwest corner of the South Mountain Reservation, West Orange, NJ, just off Northfield Avenue.
