Erie's Premier Indoor Archery Range

About Us

Coach Tim founded Archery Encounters in 2016 after several years conducting archery events in his hometown of Erie, western PA, and Hollywood, CA. Coach Tim is a USAF veteran and Erie native that came to archery late in life and had a rough start: poor fitting equipment, salesmen more interested in a sale than in educating a noob, etc, but he fell in love with archery none the less. Wanting to share this love with all he could, Tim began putting on archery events at Presque Isle State park and elsewhere around Erie. This led to invites to several celebrity events to enhance them with an archery component. Now a USA Archery Level 3 Coach and Level 2 Judge he continues to provide archery opportunities for all who want to try it, increase their proficiency, or just practice without worrying about the weather.
